It's finally here folks! After dozens of leaks over the past two weeks the HTC HD2 is finally officially revealed coinciding with today's launch of Windows Mobile 6.5. From where we stand the wait was more than worth it - the device will certainly top the WinMo food chain. Most of the rumors received turned out accurate but there are some nice surprises too.

The HTC HD2 is powered by a 1Giga Hertz (GHz) Snapdragon Central Processing Units (CPU) and sports the nice 448 Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM. Running on Windows Mobile 6.5 it relies on a 4.3-inch display of WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) resolution for its operation.


As if that wasn't exciting enough, the HD2 is also the first WinMo handset to feature a capacitive touchscreen, instead of the resistive units we have seen so far - perhaps that was exactly what was meant by Windows 7 ready in the yesterday's leak.

The HTC Sense UI, which comes preinstalled on top of the OS, is obviously here to iterate on the popular TouchFLO 3D and should create sure that all interface elements are large enough to be used with fingers only.

The network connectivity capabilities of the HTC HD2 are splendid, the handset coming with quad-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) support and dual band UMTS with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA. Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and GPS are also on board as well as the usual suspects Bluetooth and USB.


On the multimedia front the 11mm-slim HTC HD2 has a 5 megapixel autofocus capturing camera and a standard 3.5mm audio jack to offer. The list of nice features of this powerhoutilize is completed by a built-in accelerometer and proximity sensor.

The HTC HD2 will be available later this month with selected operators across Europe, before rolling out to other regions in the coming months. The company is however yet hesitant to reveal more details about its pricing but rumors have it that it will be selling for around 650 euro (Vodafone Spain) or 499GBP in the UK, which is around 540 euro.
