HTC Desire! It is more compact, lighter, has AMOLED screen.
Most importantly, it has the modern Android 2.1 (soon 2.2 Froyo), which offers so much better user experience than the old WM 6.5.

Go for Leo!
Windows Mobile in combination with powerful 1ghz processor is amazing!
And that big screen is so nice
Android is too young and limited yet

HD2 is one of the most amazing piece of hardware kit I've seen in a phone in the last couple of years. Get it even if it's just for the build quality.

Desire is the way forward my friend.

Think of it like this:
Desire is a beautiful highway with multiple exits.
HD2 is a dead end in a crappy neighbourhood.

Question for me too! The fact that Android is so very nearly on the Leo isn't helping!

Take it from someone who has had both, well, I got rid of the HD2 for an N1(The N1 is essentially the Desire..)

I loved the huge screen, it was beautiful, I hated WinMo. I had a G1 before the HD2, and the Shadow(Juno) before that. So I've experienced both OS's..

Personally, I love Android, I kept waiting and waiting for android to be ported to the HD2 but that didn't happen, until recently, and by then I had already gotten tired of it and traded the HD2+100 for the N1.

So I'd say go with the N1.

Comes down to what you want to use it for, if you want a business oriented phone go wimo. If your looking for something more polished and entertainment based go android. I prefer wimo over android personally. But I think I'm gonna make hte jump to droid when WP7 gets released. If I'm gonna have to pic an new school OS its gonna be Android. But for the next year or two I can see stayign with wimo. Once you get your prefered rom installed and get your tweaks installed its my HD2 on 6.5 is bullet proof. Haven't even reset it in 9 days.

Totally agree...and with Android 2.2 FRF91 it just keeps getting better!

I prefer entertainment and I also own Topaz now and I think I had enough of WM. It lacks cool games and apps. Ive tried them all already, and I dont think that its wise to use these expensive and powerful devices only for making calls and sending sms, so android is better I guess, it has plenty of great apps.
