HTC's HD 2: runs Windows Mobile 6.5, with an HTC-designed UI on top

Although based on the newly launched Windows Mobile 6.5, the HD 2 is overlaid with HTC’s Sense UI.

The UI already features on HTC’s Android-based smartphone, the Hero, but this is the first time that Sense has appeared on one of the firm’s Windows-based phones.

The phone is based on Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has a 4.3in capacitive touchscreen. A 5Mp camera lurks around the back.

Wireless connectivity is possible over Wi-Fi and 3G links, and – provided you splash out for the optional car kit – the integrated GPS chip turns the phone into a “finger friendly” in-car navigator.

HTC said the phone will be available throughout Europe later this month. A UK price hasn’t been confirmed. ®
