Default Engadget Reviews the HTC HD Mini

""We had to exercise our neglected patience muscle with this one, but at long last we've gotten ahold of a real live HD Mini and put it through its paces. Equipped with the same processor, screen size and resolution as HTC's Legend, but running the HD2's Windows Mobile 6.5.3 under a WinMo-specific Sense skin, the Mini is in many ways an amalgamation of its two better known cousins. You'll no doubt be aware that we weren't too displeased by either of those handsets, so what you must be wondering now is whether or not splicing them into one eminently pocketable package delivers an equally compelling device. Read on to find out."

Overall, Engadget seemed to quite like the HTC HD Mini - even with its "dead-end operating system". Those are their words, not mine, but it's not like you say that's inaccurate. However, given that most people tend to switch phones ever couple of years, I don't think you need to have a long-term investment in your phone in the same way you might in a car. The HD Mini looks like a nice piece of hardware, but in my part of the world at least, the mobile operators aren't carrying much in the way of Windows I doubt I'll get the opportunity to recommend this phone to anyone in my circle of friends/family. Any HD Mini users out there? Do you agree with the Engadget review?
