No, this is NOT an early April Fool’s joke. Though MS had a very firm stance that the HTC HD2 would not get the Windows Phone 7 Series upgrade, the ROM has made it’s way from HTC to tom_codon from HTCPedia. He posted screenshots and videos of Windows Phone 7 Series running on the HD2. Will an official ROM actually debut from HTC despite MS’s claims? Only time will tell!

Just one day after the official launch of the T-Mobile HD2, some retailers are giving out some nice incentives to buy the latest Windows Mobile offering from T-Mobile.

Looks like the October rumors of the HTC HD2 coming to T-Mobile are true! WMExperts got slipped a T-Mobile branded HTC HD2. For those who don’t know, the HD2 is HTC’s latest flagship Windows Mobile device offering that has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor along with a massive 4.3″ capacitive multi-touch display.
Here are the details on the ROM leak:
– 2.01 ROM (The latest official release from HTC is 1.61)
– Windows Mobile 6.5 Build 21889
– Opera 9.7
– Teeter 2.0
– HTC Sense 2.5 branded by T-Mobile
– …and by the looks of it – all the other regular T-Mo software that comes with their Windows Mobile phones
Coupled with HTC’s Nexus One which also packs a 1GHz Snapdragon, it looks like T-Mobile will have some great offerings for 2010. The HD2 is rumored to launch in March, however, there is no pricing available.
After taking a break in India and then starting back at school, I’m back! I apologize for not updating or giving any news about my absence. Anyway, if you’re still lusting for that new T-Mobile Touch Pro2 and find that the $350 w/ 2-year contract is too much to handle (or for that matter, $550 without contract), take a look at this pretty sweet deal on WMDeals.com. By calling the T-Mobile Business phone number (866-464-8662) and tapping ‘3′ for a new line, you can get the Touch Pro2 with the promo code “Windows Mobile” for $149. Pretty nice, eh? Unfortunately, (and I’ve checked this myself), you can’t get this promo for existing lines. You must add a new line to get this special promotion, so if you’re up for adding a new line with a new 2-year contract, this is probably the price break you’re waiting for.
Just when it couldn’t get any better, it did! TMoNews got some pics from an anonymous tipster of the actual HTC Touch Pro2 with the final design/color scheme. The device looks a lot better than on the spec sheet and miles better than the “Needs Meet Solutions” promo mockup image.
Thanks to TmoNews – we’ve got the official spec sheets for the HTC Dash 3G as well as the HTC Touch Pro2 for T-Mobile. Some interesting specs that standout include:
Speaker Independent Voice Recognition -A very fancy system that allows you to ues voice commands without any training and uses fuzzy logic to figure out what you’re saying. If you understand any of the techno-babble – which I don’t – look at Fifth Gen’s explanation about it.
Battery life – 5.5 hours of talktime and 8.3 hours on standby for both devices, even though they are two completely different types of devices.
The Touch Pro2 will sport the Touch FLO 3D and hopefully will get HTC’s Sense UI later this year via upgrade. It will also have an nifty duplex speakerphone that will support HTC’s Straight Talk feature

The title says it all . MobileBurn got their lucky hands on the T-Mobile Dash 3G that is set to release early July. They’ve been nice enough to snap up a couple of shots and even take a hands-on video. Luckily, it looks like the device has kept the soft, rubbery back that the original Dash had that many have come to know and love. I’m liking the looks of that optical trackball which seems to work just as well as those on the BB Curve. MyFaves built into the Sliding Panel homscreen as well having all of the custom HTC applications are nice touches to a quite well-rounded device. And with a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor compared to the aging 200MHz OMAP200 processor of the original (incidentally, this is the same in the T-Mobile Shadow) – the device should scream with performance. The video shows just as much, however, I’ll reserve judgement on that for when I can actually try the device out myself.
