Just came across this thread on XDA-Developers forum where a forum member got a reply from HTC regarding Windows Mobile 7 upgrade for HD2. The member in question enquired HTC via email on whether or not HD2 will be getting the upcoming Windows Mobile 7 as a free upgrade. This was the reply he got from a representative at HTC.
Last month, we informed you about the possibility of HTC HD2 getting Windows Mobile 7 upgrade. But now according to a tweet posted by HTC’s Russian twitter account, it looks like HTC HD2 has been confirmed to get Windows Mobile 7 upgrade when it is released in Q3/Q4 of 2010. Translated version of the tweet is as follows.
HTC Sense for Windows Mobile keeps getting better and better with every new version. The latest 2.5.1921 Build of HTC Sense (aka Manila and TouchFLO 3D) brings a new “Documents Tab” which lets you quickly browse through your documents stored in “\My Documents” location right from the beautiful Sense interface. The best thing about this add-in is that it supports almost all popular major formats like .txt, .doc, .docx and .pdf.
The upcoming version 2.0.1 ROM for HTC HD2 has revealed, that HTC HD2 could finally be heading to the United States on T-Mobile in the first half of 2010. The files and folders dumped from .nbh file has definite references in the form of a folder named “TMOUS”, which points to a T-Mobile US version of the said device. HTC HD2 was released in Europe and Asia in October of this year for a retail price of approx. US $800 for the unlocked version.
A source closed to MSMobiles has confirmed that HTC HD2 will be receiving an official free upgrade to Windows Mobile 7 once it is out in Q4 2010. This makes sense because HD2 is the first phone which meets all the hardware chassis requirements laid out by Microsoft for a phone which will be powered by Windows Mobile 7, including support for multi-touch through its massive 4.3’’ capacitive display.
