T-Mobile UK Announces HTC HD2 In November

HTC’s latest avatar in the high-profile handsets domain, dubbed as “HTC HD2”, has finally found home in the UK in the guise of T-Mobile, as the mobile operator announced the UK launch of the handset on its website.

Furthermore, the website also revealed that the exciting HTC smartphone could hit the UK market anytime in the month of November.

Previous rumours were already suggesting the imminent UK launch of the handset on T-Mobile’s network, and with the recent announcement from the operator the rumours have eventually become official.

In quite a surprising announcement, the website is featuring the older HTC Touch HD, and the operator mentions that the customers will enjoy “loads of applications to download from Android Market”, which simply doesn’t align with the company’s recent stand of sticking with Windows Mobile.

Incidentally, just a few days back, HTC maintained that it wouldn’t embrace Google Android platform in the near future, and that it would keep on focussing on devices powered by Windows Mobile operating system.

Therefore, the announcement of offering loads of Android downloads for the new handset from the labs of HTC seems to have been placed mistakenly by someone, as noted by the tech website Engagdget.
