We hate to be the bearer of bad news, and you may have already heard or received the official HTC tweet, but the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has decided not to bring the HTC Touch HD to the United States.

The tweet reads:

"sad news, US. we looked into it- by the time we could bring Touch HD to the states, it would be old news. we do have other cool stuff coming."

Hoping that it was some kind of hoax or miscommunication (or maybe it was just denial), we double-checked with our HTC contact, who confirmed the story. I suppose there is some consolation that there's "other cool stuff coming," but it's hard to forget the Touch HD's spacious 3.8-inch, VGA touch screen. Better dish soon, HTC, because you've whet our appetite and we're hungry.
