Announced last month, the HTC HD2 has been overshadowed by the recent launch of new Android devices such as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and the Motorola Droid, but for those loyal fans of the HD2, listen up as we’ve got some good news for you.


HTC has announced that they’ve begun shipping the HD2 to Europe and Asia with the US scheduled for early 2010. While that may bit of a downer, that’s still good news considering that the original HTC Touch HD didn’t even manage to land in the North American market. A price and possible carrier who might offer up this behemoth of a touchscreen phone wasn’t mentioned, but they did hint that a “major US carrier” will debut it in the country. If the rumors are to be believed, T-Mobile is the particular carrier being alluded to here. You can read the entire press release here.

If you’ve been out of the loop as of late and wondering what all the hype is with the HTC HD2 is, a quick look at its specs should answer your query. Boasting of a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a massive 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Windows Mobile 6.5 complete with their new Sense UI, there’s very little not to like about the HTC HD2. Too bad though that it won’t make in time for the US holiday shopping season, but hey, that just gives you enough reason to cut back on your spending to save up for this baby when it hits the market early next year.
