HTC HD2 (T-Mobile)
The HTC HD2 will be available from T-Mobile starting March 24 for $199.99 with a two-year contract and qualifying data plan. Alternatively, you can get it with an Even More Plus Plan, which doesn't require an annual contract, for $449.99.
T-Mobile is really playing up the multimedia capabilities of the device, and to sweeten the deal, it preloads the smartphone with a ton of entertainment apps, including Blockbuster's On Demand video download application, Barnes & Noble's e-book reader, and both "Transformers" movies.
Display and size
The HD2 features an extra-large 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen that's absolutely gorgeous. However, the trade-off is that the device is a bit on the larger side at 4.74 inches tall by 2.64 inches wide and 5.54 ounces.
In addition to a traditional onscreen QWERTY keyboard, the HD2 also has a Swype keyboard, which lets you input text by dragging your finger from letter to letter in one continuous motion.
The bottom of the device has a 3.5mm headphone and a Micro-USB port.
On back of the phone, you'll find the HD2's 5-megapixel camera and features a dual LED flash, autofocus, and editing options.
The camera took excellent photos with amazing sharpness, but the colors on indoor shots could have been slightly brighter.
