HTC HD2 users were hoping to get Windows Phone 7 update on their mobile phone. HTC’s official twitter account had also updated about Windows Mobile 7 on HD2, but it seems Microsoft and HTC are not going to provide any new update for the device.
Natasha Kwan, Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business in the Asia-Pacific region, has given an interesting statement on future Windows Phone 7 update for HTC HD2.
She said, “Because we have very specific requirements for Windows Phone 7 Series the current phones we have right now will not be upgradable”; the HD2 “doesn’t qualify because it doesn’t have the three buttons”.
In the last month, Microsoft revealed Windows Phone series in front of entire world and everyone was thinking that HTC HD2 could be the first device to get Windows Phone 7 update. Unfortunately, it doesn’t meet with the high specifications required for upcoming Windows Phone OS.
If you are planning to get HTC HD2, you may want to change the decision as there will be no Windows Phone 7 on it and you will have to deal with not so great WinMo 6.5.3. As far as specifications and features are concerned, Google’s Nexus One is the best alternative for HD2 device.
