In the showcase section of Windows Marketplace for Mobile I noticed a “new” Twitter client for Windows Phones called TouchTwit. I was looking for a new fast Twitter client for use on the HTC HD2, that would take more advantage of the Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon and the massive 4.1″ capacitive screen. Based on the positive feedback from users in the Windows Marketplace for Mobile, I decided to buy TouchTwit from the Windows Marketplace for Mobile for the reasonable price of € 1,89 ! First launch of TouchTwit on HTC HD2 If you don’t mind I will skipp the purchasing process part from Windows Marketplace for Mobile, since this is very simple and intuitive to Read more

The HTC HD2, which features a massive 4.3″ capacitive screen, has been reviewed a few months ago in the article:  “HTC HD2 review – A new era in Windows Phones’ history“. The new era in Windows Mobile history is reflected in the use of capacitive screen technology and the resulting absense of a stylus which has dominated the mobile market for many years. Those among us who worked with the Palm III, Palm V, Compaq iPAQ 3650 or any later Windows Mobile PocketPC do exactly know what I’m talking about ! Since the launch of the first generation iPhone back in 2007 (which also featured a capacitive screen), the complete mobile Read more

MobilityMinded reviewed the HTC HD2 a few weeks ago, and my personal wrap-up conclusion was the following: “The HTC HD2 is a very well balanced Windows Phone for various usage scenarios, and with a bulk load of added value not only in terms of technology and hardware but also in terms of software innovations as well. HTC has done an amazing job and set the bars significantly higher.” In this article I would like to have a thorough and in-depth look at another software innovation on the HTC HD2, which is the WorldCard Mobile application from PenPowerInc. This application helps endusers, in particular business people, to capture contact details from business cards and export Read more

The HTC HD2 is, without any doubt, one of the hottest and most powerful Windows Phones on the market today. MobilityMinded has been very fortunate to conduct a very extensive and indepth review of the HTC HD2, which is published in the article “HTC HD2 review – A new era in Windows Phones’ history“. UPDATE: If you are using a T-Mobile USA branded version of the HTC HD2, the HTC Wi-Fi Router application won’t be pre-installed in the ROM.
