HTC Leo = The first decent HTC phone in a long time

Search This thread
But it's good to have false hope once in a while right?:

Indeed, yes! That is why President Obama is as satsifying as a new planned phone release that never quite delivers on the promise or the buzz. He has been a master at demonstrating what false hope is all about. In his honor I would like to propose a new standard unit of measure called the "obam", which is expressed as a ratio of pre-delivery enthusiasm vs post delivery performance.

This in and of itself would make a great new App for WinMo's new marketplace. :rolleyes:

Someone has been drinking the Fox News Koolaid. :p

No. Just the opposite! If I were Fox News Hound, I'd say "Obama's taxing Americans to give these Leos away to illegal immigrants" ... No, I'm a "San Francisco Liberal" disappointed with his timidity...

Anyway, very off-topic and I apologize for this digression. :D

Storage and Program memory sizes

By comparing Leo's Storage and Program memory values against those of the UTC HD HERE, the free Program space is much lower (200 vs. 300) and the free Program space is almost the same.
Are we going to encounter a problem with such a small Storage space? (currently I use more then 200MB of Storage on my HTC HD).

Yup. I hope that due to the snappy Leo's CPU, some apps (usually) intended to be installed on internal Storage, will perform OK, when installed on Storage Card.:confused:

I know this has been asked before, but not for a while

Hey, I know someone asked previously, but it was some weeks ago. Does anyone know when this is going to be released in Hong Kong?

Any insight appreciated...

Does the Leo (HD2) support rSAP?

Has anyone managed to pair the HD2 (Leo) with an Audi, VW or Skoda factory fitted bluetooth car kit. If so does the phone have full rSAP profile on it required to use the external antennae and full link up with the contacts list and texts??

As a current Kaiser user running Abu's X2-V10 ROM I am looking at the HD2 as the next upgrade. I have looked at the TP2 but the level of spec on the HD2 is so much higher than the TP2 it seem silly to get the TP2. I think I can deal with not having a proper slideout keyboard. But I am still left asking myself is it worth being tied into an 18 month contract for, or will HTC be releasing a HD2 style handset with a keyboard?

Probably around MWC 2010 they will announce Touch Pro 3 which will be essentially HD2 with a slide-out keyboard ,some kind of video output - hopefully mini/microHDMI and probably just like Touch Pro 2 got official upgrade to 6.5 TP3 will get official upgrade to WM7.
But remember this is just pure speculation but based on past announcements from HTC.

    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!!
