HTC will formally launch its Windows Mobile - not Android, alas - HD2 smartphone in Taipei on Wednesday, the company said today.

Why WM not Android? HTC needs to "take care" of the Microsoft OS, HTC CEO Peter Chou said last week.

Maybe, but that hasn't stopped the company burying the WM 6.5 user interface - which hasn't changed all that much since the PocketPC days - with its own UI, Sense.

Sense debut on the Android-based HTC Hero.
