HTC HD2 delivers unprecedented Windowsยฎ phone experience with a
high-resolution, 4.3-inch capacitive touch display
TAIWAN " October 6, 2009 " HTC Corporation, today unveiled the HTC
HD2, the first Windows phone with HTC Sense, a customer experience
focused on putting people at the centre by making their phones work in a
more simple, natural and personal way. With its industry leading,
high-resolution, 4.3-inch capacitive touch display, the ultra thin HTC
HD2 delivers more visible content in a sharper, brighter and richer way.
At HTC we believe that the best things in life should be experienced,
not explained. HTC Sense is based on this principle by making the phone
more simple and natural to use and by enabling people to personalise
their mobile experience in their own unique way, said Peter Chou, CEO
of HTC Corporation. With HTC Sense, the HTC HD2 melds the power and
flexibility of the Windows platform with the most advanced phone we ve
ever created.
HTC has a long history of innovation with Windows Mobile, shipping
millions of devices over the years in a wide range of designs, said
Andy Lees, senior vice president, Mobile Communication Business,
Microsoft Corp. The HTC HD2 Windows phone breaks new ground with its
responsive, touch screen.
The HD2 uses the first capacitive touch display on a Windows phone to
make viewing, zooming and resizing websites, Microsoftยฎ Office files,
PDF documents and pictures easier with just a pinch of your fingers. The
large display also enables faster, more efficient and accurate typing
using the onscreen keyboard. Utilizing Qualcomm s new 1Ghz Snapdragon
mobile processor, the HTC HD2 offers enhanced performance that improves
the speed of applications, videos, games and more.
Developed with a passion for enhancing peoples lives through innovation,
design and ease of use, HTC Sense is rooted in three fundamental
principles of Make it Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected.
Make It Mine
The HD2 continues HTCs drive for personalization by reflecting not only
what you want on your phone, but also where you are. Using its large
4.3-inch window-like display, HTC has brought a new dimension to weather
with a localized, animated weather experience that utilizes HD2s entire
display without being invasive to your important content and
information.ย The HD2 can also be further enhanced to reflect your
needs and style by downloading a wealth of applications at the new
Windowsยฎ Marketplace for Mobile.
Stay Close
The HD2 helps you stay close to the important friends and colleagues in
your life with HTCs people-centric communication approach that provides
a single contact view that displays individual communication snapshots
of your conversations with the people in your life regardless of whether
a call, text, Facebook status update or email were used. While in the
midst of email exchange with someone you can easily transition to a call
by pressing the call button. HTC has also included a new Windows-based
version of its Twitter application, HTC Peep. The pictures you take with
the 5MP camera can also be quickly shared via Facebook or Twitter.
Discover the Unexpected
With the HTC Sense experience, the HTC HD2 includes a variety of
enhancements that expand and improve the overall phone experience. The
HD2 includes a variety of sensors including a proximity sensor that is
used to prevent false screen touches when the phone is picked up to
answer or make a call. A light sensor automatically adjusts the
brightness of the display. Leveraging its 3G broadband connectivity, the
HTC HD2 also offers personal Wi-Fi anywhere for your computer or other
devices.
Also available for the HTC HD2 is the optional car kit that
automatically transforms HD2s user interface into a finger friendly
in-car navigation experience for driving.
Windows phone
As a new Windows phone, the HTC HD2 showcases the powerful messaging,
browsing and productivity capabilities delivered by Windows Mobileยฎ
6.5. Offering a best in class e-mail experience complete with the
ability to synchronize with Microsoft Exchange, you have the ability to
check and manage multiple email accounts. Microsofts new My Phone
service enables you to automatically back up and synch photos, music,
contacts and text messages for free from the HD2 to the web.

The HTC HD2 will be available later this month with selected operators
across Europe, before rolling out to other regions in the coming months.
