Review of the HTC HD Mini aka "Little HD2"
Mobility Minded recently posted a review and comparison of the new HTC HD Mini, a combination of the HD2 and Touch2. While is doesn't feature a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor or 4.3 inch display like the HD2, the Qualcomm 7227 processor is still decent and the smaller form factor is a plus for many.
Another pro of Mini is the inclusion of Windows Mobile 6.5.3. Although it is a "dot-dot-release", it does include a significant set of improvements over 6.5, including drag and drop icons in the start menu (one of those "how could they miss that" cons in 6.5), and an improved core UI overall. Add HTC's Sense 2.5 interface on top of that and you've got a very good user experience.
Suggested retail price is €379 (about $500 U.S.), although you can purchase from Clove.co.uk in Europe for £275 (about $425 U.S.) unlocked. No word on U.S. availability, but with WP7 around the corner at this point, I doubt we will see an official carrier release in the states.
