HTC Confirms that HD2 Gets Windows Mobile 7 on Twitter


Quickly becoming the most updated mobile in Windows Mobile history, the HD2 is getting Windows Mobile 7 making it the Windows Mobile phone to buy. I was notably impressed by the device on launch with only a couple of quibbles but now it has hit that the Windows Mobile 7 upgrade will occur possibly around this time next year. Bit of a wait but something for all those who managed to buy it to look forward too.

We just got an interesting news tip pointing to the HTC Twitter account from Russia. The tweet mentions that the only HTC device currently on the market to receive a Windows Mobile 7 upgrade will be the HD2. And we’ve suspected this for a while, considering that the HD2 meets Microsoft’s hardware requirementsfor Windows Mobile 7. Here’s what they said:
for Diamond 2 firmware is not planned. Of the existing communicators on the market, only the HD2 firmware to get WM7.
Hopefully what we see here is a true (and considering that this was said by an official HTC rep, it should be), because the HD2 is going to turn out to be one of the most popular smartphones of all time. If it’s getting an upgrade to 7, this will make a lot of people happy.
Thanks for the tip, av8612.
