T-Mobile: Google to open Android Market to Win Mo apps
Surely some mistake?
Google has extended the reach of the Android Market online app store to Windows Mobile devies... if T-Mobile UK is to be believed.
The carrier this week put up a page on its website for the upcoming HTC Touch HD2.
T-Mobile's HD2 page: Android and Windows, together at last
The handset, due this month, numbers, says T-Mobile, a "huge 3.8in touchscreen [that] keeps everything at your fingertips" and a "five megapixel camera for great photos" among the handsets "biggest boasts".
The best part: "Choose from loads of applications to download from Android Market."
But what's that in the top left corner of the HD2's screen? Yes, the Windows Mobile Start menu.
HTC did at one point say the HD2 would be based on Android, but more recently company CEO Peter Chou said that while this was possible, HTC decided to stick with Windows Mobile because it needs to "take care" of the Microsoft OS. ®
Thanks to reader Headbones for the tip.
that the HD2 was going to be Android and therefore it will be trivial to put Android on it.
A stated elsewhere, it's all fine and dandy having Sense (Manilla2.5) on this phone with its capacitive loveliness, if only Windows Mobile 6.5 supported capacitive. Using anything outside Manilla would be a PITA with only fingers and there are no good capacitive styli that I'm aware of (HTC have a patent for one, but no stylus ships with the HD2).
iPhone haters get a HD2.
Geeks, get a TP2.
@AC 10:59 and his Open orifice
So... you took a document, edited it in something that thinks it's implemented the original file format properly but maybe not so sure, then tried to open it in the original application which attempted to try and solve the problems that had been introduced and... it's Office's fault.
Hmmm... not sure how that counts as an "on topic rant"
not the right photo either
I would have thought that was the bigger mistake...
Not even an HD2
The picture isn't of an HD2 either so T Mobile failed on two counts.
Oi scamps get on msn. I need to talk to you about stu [-]
Or it could be a mistake in the ad...
It could easily be that they said "Android Market" when they meant something else.
