HTC HD2 headed for T-Mobile U.S. (probably in March)
We're calling it folks: we now believe T-Mobile is the U.S. destination for the famous HTC HD2 (watch our hands-on here). Sorry to the other carriers, thanks for playing. We're also hearing a tentative release window of March.
How do we know? One of our trusty ninjas hooked us up with the still-in-testing ROM files for said device.
Having dumped the .nbh file ourselves, we can verify that indeed this sucker is a T-Mobile HD2 ROM (see below screen shot). And no, we will not share this, so don't bother askin'.
Here are some stats:
- Leo ROM 2.01 (big jump from v1.61 leak)
- WM6.5 build 21869
- Opera 18.104.22.168627
- Teeter 2.0 (ooh, a new version)
- TMOUS_Manila_Core 2.5.1921401
Of course that's just a drop in the bucket from the External Packages folder, but you get the drift.
So T-Mobilers, a huge congrats. And to AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, as far as we know, curses to you.
