Default Engadget's HTC HD2 Hands-On Impression

"We had a chance to give HTC's newest darling device -- the Windows Mobile 6.5-sporting HD2 -- a more thorough hands-on today, and we wanted to share our impressions. Firstly, we must say that HTC has done perhaps its most ambitious skinning job ever here. So while this does run atop Windows Mobile 6.5, you rarely see the OS poking through the gorgeous new Sense user interface the company has created."

It looks like there's a lot to like about the HTC HD2, but I'm honestly questioning the 4.3 inch screen. It looks HUGE in Eric Lin's 4.3 inches too big? What do you think? I guess I'll have to see it in person to decide. Other than that, wow, does this device look hot! HTC Sense - the new term for TouchFlo3D - looks buttery smooth in performance. This looks like it's going to be a great device - and it seems like it's even going to come to North America...

I was thinking the same thing about the size. its huge. Remember the early Faraday or Himalaya models from HTC? They even had the slide out portrait keyboards.

I might be tempted to buy this and put a data only sim card in it. But as my dedicated phone? I don't know.

Default Coming to America?

Says who? When? What Carrier?

Dang, I'm having a hard enough time choosing between the 'Pure' and "Tilt 2". Why is HTC making my life a living hell???

Seriously, it's coming Stateside? I might wait for that. If I can tolerate it in my pocket the on-screen keyboard should be big enough I could ditch the Fuze or Tilt 2 brick in my pocket!

Yeah, I don't know how people actually read the GPS on the Fuze's screen while they're driving. I know it's pretty impossible for me.

I'd jump on this in a second.
