Hi,
is the power button of the HD2 located in any useful place, like in Kaiser?
I got sort of used to put the phone in sleep(?) with my thumb and when I tried to get used to use power button in Omnia... well it's not that usefull there

Somebody knows if it comes with a free microsd card? Like 2 GB just for a start...I havent seen anything in the unboxing videos or in the reviews.

I think it's because no-one has the "release" packaging... As far as I can tell they are all "review" devices, and all have the "Not for resale" logo on boot.

Really hope you're right. Otherwise the only usefull thing in the package is going to be the charger (apart from the phone itself of course). :p

That reply seems to be out of the world of goo corporation.

Sorry Kersh,

Your dead wrong.

I made my inquiries directly through the HTC website.

I didn't get a satisfactory response the first time I asked them, so I replied to their response a second time with slightly different wording.

So HTC's 2nd response confirmed that the display is made of glass.

Cheers

check out this amazing review: (original in Dutch but for you non-Dutch speakers out there, google translate does quite a nice job + for the benchmarks, numbers are all you need to be convinced this really is one of the best phones out there!)

This is now the second review that shows the snapdragon in the HD2 performing worse than those in its competitors. Maybe htc chose to downclock or turn off some feature of the snapdragon in order to maximize battery-life?

could be some power-saving option yeah, but personally i'm not too worried about the performance compared to the TG01; just look at how fast it starts up and how fast it loads websites- simply amazing!

Yeah the load time is impressive, but I was expecting the HD2 to win in every catergory and the difference in floating point calculations is a pretty big one. Not that I'd ever consider going with a tg01 instead of a hd2, but the hd2 seems held back somehow compared to its competitors.

Yes, that's exactly what br3nt told you: the End Call button (dual action button).

    Official HTC Leo Specs:​
    (Exclusively on xda-developers)​

    Anxiety is over guys.As you all may see below i think it was about time, rumors to be broken and jailbreaked @ last, not to mention, that loads were been circulating pointlessly, so things finally, had to placed in an nice order and get finalized, for you out there to know and stop questioning “whether this, whether that”. I know that for sure, the below Original Leo’s Specs will leak throughout the net in lighting speed, as it is clear as far as I saw all these days that I am with u, whenever something is posted, is spread out to other forums, blogs and so on. Let it be so. But you be the FIRST to know what others will read the same, taken from here, or may still be waitting for... ;)

    Among all these rumors, most of them, were based on the existence or not of the Digital Compass and some claimed that it should have been hidden somewhere, somehow, though others supporting the idea by saying that they own final official Leo’s ROM’s that it does support. U’ll clearly see below, that through the Value Added Applications, the support of CLL.dll library, explains everything by itself, so yes, Digital Compass is there, as tested on my own, but I must say that it was part of my secrecy which now, I can’t keep it any longer ;) Along with DC, its the screen chassis to fully support future WM7. So expect the best and do not question urselves any longer about those. Lastly, it needs to be mentioned, that though a pic was posted, some posts ago regarding FM Radio existence. That indeed, is fully included, BUT user can find it on Start-Tools-FM Radio and not as it was shown on that image.

    More Photos:

    Finally, this post is concluded with some today’s (3/10/09) taken photos, with Leo's back being uncovered and battery being removed, indicating with red arrows in some of them, where microSD and/or USIM is inserted, where, soft-reset button is, where led-indicating/notifications lights are placed (front images) and in 360 format where all Leo’s button exist. Its clearly shown, there is an absence of push-camera button, so no more questions about it whatsoever;) Just for the non-belivers and for the rest to know, all IMEI, S/N numbers have all the way through been fuzed by me for security reasons, so don’t put urselves into crazy thoughts where the hell all these numbers gone ;) Once more I wanna thank all of you of reading this detailed post, ask for admins forgiveness and I truly hope from now and on, u have the best overview of the device that as it seems most of u expect for such long. Well…no more!! My best regards to all of you and still I will remain at forum’s disposal and to all of you for anything else may have left to ask! Till then…keep it low and slow, stay out of troubles…and for some of u…have finally a normal-non-posting lame life!!
