The HTC HD2, arguably one of the better looking mobile phones that will be launched on the market, has quietly been placed on pre-order at Mobiles.co.uk, one of the many sister companies to Carphone Warehouse.
The phone which was formally known as Leo will be available on O2 and comes with Windows Mobile 6.5. Customers looking to get the phone for free will have to fork out £36.25 per month on a 24-month contract with O2. The http://www.mobiles.co.uk/o2-htc-touch-hd2.html deal includes an automatic £90 cash back, 1200 minutes, unlimited texts but apparently no internet or WiFi as for the iPhone.
The other noteworthy contracts include one where the initial outlay for the phone is £99 and gets you 600 minutes and unlimited texts for £25 per month. The cheapest monthly contract from Mobiles.co.uk for the HD2 costs only £15 per month (100 minutes and unlimited texts for 24 months) but the customer will have to fork out £260 for the phone.
Given that the phone is already available on pre-order SIM free for £486 at Handtec, one might prefer to get it from Mobiles.co.uk where the effective cost per month for the cheapest contract will be around £5 per month.
That said, it is still early days and not only are other phones just about to arrive on the market (Sony Xperia X3, Motorola Droid, Acer Liquid etc) but the HD2 is also set to be distributed by T-Mobile and other mobile phone networks.
This phone comes with some great specifications. A huge 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, an ARM Cortex-A8 processor with plenty of memory, HSDPA, a five-megapixel camera, WiFi and a gorgeous finish to match these.
