Today at CES 2010 Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft delivers the pre-show keynote address. He will be joined by HTC CEO, Peter Chou to announce the availability of the HD2 for the US market in early 2010. T-Mobile USA will offer this Windows Mobile 6.5 touch screen smartphone.
The HD2 has WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with a full set of profiles including A2DP stereo and DUN (not that US readers will be dying to use this as a wireless modem on EDGE), a new WiFi Router cellular data connection sharing applet (again, only exciting if you have 3G to share with your WiFi notebook) and a GPS. As mentioned, the phone has a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and 488 megs of RAM with 512 megs of flash ROM. The HD2 runs Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional customized to support the capacitive display and it has the HTC Sense UI. The phone has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash and it can shoot VGA video.
