Wow, the net is running rampant with rumors that the HTC HD2 will release in the US early 2010 with the Android OS on a CDMA carrier. Could this be the reason Sprint has passed on some of the soon to be released Android phones? Many of HTC’s phones are often converted for CDMA and EVDO and could reach the US through Sprint or Verizon if a switch takes place.
The first thing you notice about this powerhouse is the 4.3 capacitive touch screen that makes the iPhone look like a child’s toy. The screen may be the first thing you notice, but it’s not what’s making people drool.
With its 1 GHz Snapdragon-based processor the phone has plenty of horsepower to multitask and perform well. HTC also placed its Sense UI on top of Windows Mobile and has reportedly made a ton of software updates to make sure the HD2 is blazing fast. There’s also Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, a 5-megapixel camera, and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
It appears we have a wait and see game on our hands. Will it be GSM on AT&T or T-Mobile, will it be CDMA on Sprint or Verizon? My guess is if the phone is converted to CDMA it will hit Sprint because they have a long term business relationship with HTC.
