The first time laid my eyes on HTC HD2, I am amazed by its ostentatiously huge and amazingly slim. The cinematic 4.3” display makes me totally fall for it. Actually, it is the latest version of the Touch HD which was the undisputed leader on the Windows Mobile smartphone market in 2008. After a year, the new comer has been improved a lot. Featuring killer spec of gigantic capacitive screen, 1GHz Snapdragon Processor and 448MB RAM, 5MP auto-focus camera with dual LED flash…Let’s take a closer look at it.
What’s inside the box? The HTC HD2 phone, battery, USB sync cable, AC adapter, Power plug, 3.5mm stereo headset, Pouch and the Quick start Guide.
With the 4.3” display, HD2 looks big in size. It can’t be used with just single hand, but quite thin. A screen that big should has its consequence, right? It weight 157 grams which is understandable as the screen is covered by glass and the battery cover is all metal.
The hardware controls on the HD2 has been increased over its predecessor: all together five hardware keys below the display. The Menu key is the new comer which appears on the WinMo 6.5 device such as Touch2.
The left side of the phone hosts only a volume rocker.
The bottom part of the phone hosts the 3.5mm standard audio jack, the microUSB port and the microphone pinhole.
Turn to the back, you’ll see the 5MP camera lens and the dual LED flash is just next to it.
Removing the steel back cover, you’ll find the reset pinhole along with the microSD card slot which can handle full 16GB microSD card with problem-free.
The HD2 with the stylish carrying pouch. We are impressed by the pouch as it looks very grand.
PocketPC regulars are certainly familiar with the TouchFLO interface. However, HD2 has upgraded but still cool TouchFLO 3D plus the features found in the Sense UI pioneered on the HTC Hero. It becomes more content and full of eye-candy. As of runs on Windows Mobile 6.5, the Start menu comes in a honeycomb pattern, which makes touch control even more comfortable.
HD2 comes with the latest Opera browser which is extensively touch-optimized and supports multi-touch. On the big capacitive screen along with the powerful hardware, the web browsing experience on the HD2 is excellent. Pages look great and the pinch zoom is very smooth and fast with no visible lag.
The details of the HD2 hardware: 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 448 MB RAM…It got a bundle of groundbreaking hardware.
Surprisingly, we found the unexpected features on HD2: the ringer volume level that immediately scales down when the phone detects that you have picked it up and the display that automatically adjusts to the light level in your surroundings and turns off to prevent false screen touches during a call. With groundbreaking features, high performance and elegant design, however, comes with a relatively high price tag. Or you can check on its opponents, Toshiba TG01 and Acer neoTouch also with giant screen and fast CPU, both of them are at lower price but features less UI customizations, resistive touchscreens and less RAM.
Recently, we saw many reinvented phones launched to the market. Just like the Nokia E72 after its successor E71 to win over customer’ heart. And now, it is BlackBerry’s term. They updated its flagship model with industrial design and latest UI to more powerful model, Bold 9700 which continues to be a staple for the manufacturer. Let's take a closer look into the Bold 9700's world.
What’s inside? BlackBerry Bold 9700, battery, charger, microUSB cable, stereo headset, a leather case and user guide.
It's easy to see some of the design elements that were used in previous BlackBerry devices. With the 2.44” display which is a bit bigger than the Nokia E72 and it feels lighter in the hand and won't require much room in the pocket as well. Sure we like the updated slim looks which make Bold 9700 one of the sleekest looking BlackBerry devices we've seen.
We weren’t surprised to see the Bold 9700’s QWERTY Keyboard as it is just like the one on the Bold 9000. The most glaring cosmetic different is the trackpad which appeared on Curve 8520.The other hardware buttons surrounding the trackpad remain unchanged.
The left side houses microUSB port and standard 3.5mm headset jack which is the commonly found on every BlackBerry device.
The volume rocker and the camera shutter are located on the right side which adopts the rugged feeling on the Storm2.
The top portion hides the lock and mute buttons.
Turn it over, you may find the 3.2MP autofocus camera with LED flash. The leather like back covering makes the device looks very professional.
You have to remove the rear cover access to the microSD slot which located near the top.
The same layout of the main menu as the previous. They are continues to live on in almost every BlackBerry we've seen since then-crispy and responsive.
With an updated operating system of version 5.0 tacked on that makes internet browsing faster than before.
It starts a sharp battle for business device between Bold 9700 and Nokia E72. They are both reinvented phone, Bold 9700 got a bit larger display and it is going to be the winner in this category with a brighter and crisper screen. The most famous BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard on 9700, but E72 catch up in this department but a bit smaller. However, E72 has a better camera with 5MP. And both devices come with an application store: Nokia has its brand-new Ovi Store while RIM launched the BlackBerry App World a few months ago. Both app stores are relatively young, but are offering more new and useful apps regularly. It is quite difficult to make the decision between them. How do you think?
