HTC Russia ... on Twitter ... says HD2 is getting Windows Mobile 7

 

Update: The Tweet you see above has been deleted. Validation!?!?! (Good eye, Mxx!)

We're really not fans of seeing "official" sources break news on Twitter, but so be it. Here you see a translation of a Tweet from @HTC_Ru, HTC's Russian Twitter account. And it clearly says that of the Windows phones currently available, only the HD2 is slated to get an upgrade to Windows Mobile 7. That's something we've been quietly expecting for a while now, especially given the supposed WM7 chassis specs. The HD2 has the 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It's got a capacitive screen. And it's hulking size means I wouldn't want to tell it it'd be stuck with Windows Mobile 6.5 forever.

As for other devices getting an upgrade to Windows Mobile 7? We'll go ahead and say that the bunch we saw recently in that HTC leak are a pretty good bet, assuming they're not actually launched with Windows Mobile 7.

  • yes! i will switch to tmobile.
  • f yeah baby!!!!!!!
  • looks like that tweet was deleted...so perhaps it was inaccurate?
  • Yeah, someone with a Twitter account started the rumor which turned out not to be true. HTC HD2 owners: looks like you will be stuck with Windows Mobile 6.x forever :(
  • So @HTC Ru is not really a HTC run Twitter account for their Russian customers? I think not. And are we to just discount *everything* they say? On what grounds? Should we just always assume people from HTC are not telling the truth? Me thinks HTC is just getting a bit more sloppy as they get bigger and bigger.

  • I got the HD2 in November 2009 after researching it extensively. It was rumoured it would be freely upgraded to WinMob7 but that was just a rumour probably started by HTC, it never happened. The main problem is this is a device is sold as a phone with excellent browsing and connectivity solutions for social networking. After using it for a few weeks you begin to realise that this is a device that has excellent browsing and connectivity solutions for social networking but fails miserably as a phone. It's great to be able to poke your friends on Facebook (no pun) from the beach whilst letting the world know your location with your GPS but trying to make a simple phone call to tell the Misses you will be late home whilst trying to cope with rush hour traffic is virtually impossible due to the awkward navigation menus and stupidly small touch keypad. That's assuming you can see the keypad because if you are outdoors daylight makes the screen almost impossible to see. HTC should have designed this as a phone first that can make calls easily and then added other functionality. Sadly they have turned what could have been a real competitor to the iPhone into just another overpriced piece of junk. I have now sold it to some poor unsuspecting mug on eBay and have gone back to the faithful Nokia N series.
