Vodafone and Orange snubbing the HTC HD2

HTC-HD2 is reporting that the Vodafone is halting sales of the HTC HD2. Having used the device for a week or so I’m quite shocked by this. I did experience the odd lag but not enough to make me stop using the device, as a seasoned vet of Windows Mobile I’m used to the OS having lazy days. dares to suggest that reason the HD2 sales are being refused are that both Orange and Vodafone are going to focus sales towards the iPhone. Have a read at article and see what you think.

Motorola Milestone unboxing video

This is another of those eagerly awaited devices, having sold over 1 million units in the US as the Motorola Droid it’s expected to be a big hit here in the UK as the Motorola Milestone.

This is the first Android 2.0 Eclair OS device to hit the market and one of only two Android handsets to have a 480×800 pixel display, the other being the Acer Liquid that we are also reviewing at the moment.

I’ve only had the Milestone for about half an hour and after finishing the unboxing video (below) I’ve had a little play. I am so far impressed with the build quality of the handset and the speed belies the 550Mhz processor that sounds to be a little on the slow side, but really doesn’t ‘feel’ it!

We’ll be reviewing the Motorola Milestone over the next week or so and we’ll have that onsite for you as soon as we can. For now have a look at the unboxing video below for a quick tour of the hardware. Also as I mentioned in the video, just like the Dext you cant do anything with this handset without installing a SIM-card which is a little annoying. I’ll have another video of the OS for you later on!
