Why the HTC HD2 will probably get a Windows Phone 7 Update

Posted by Tanmay | Posted in HTC HD2, Windows Phone 7 | Posted on 16-02-2010


Windows Phone 7 Series was announced yesterday. One of the major point to be taken into consideration is the Hardware Specification. The minimum Hardware requirements for a Windows Phone 7 is actually not so minimum.

The previously leaked Chassis 1 Requirement mentions a minimum of 512Mb RAM, a Qualcomm 1Ghz Processor, WVGA Screen, MultiTouch Support among others.

There are a few devices on the market which currently meet those specifications. The HTC HD2 is one of them and it does have a large userbase. So everyone is hoping that the HD2 gets a Windows Phone 7 Update.

Will the HTC HD2 get a Windows Phone 7 Update? Well, probably! Here’s why :

1. The Demo Unit at MWC ran the same processor as HD2, the Qualcomm Snapdragon. HD2 meets all the minimal requirements. (4 Point MultiTouch support on the HD2 is still unknown)

2.HTC Russia had previously Tweeted about the HD2 getting a Windows Phone 7 Upgrade which they later retracted.

3. T-Mobile US has hinted theres something big coming for the US Version of HD2. This point makes it almost sure the HD2 will get an update.

The T-Mobile HD2 is yet not launched, and after the MWC announcement its pretty obvious that no one will buy the T-Mo HD2 now just to see Windows Phone 7 Series launching 6 months later and not supporting it!

Also note that the T-Mobile HD2 has 1Gb ROM which was set as a minimum requirement for Windows Phone 7.
