HTC HD2 for T-Mobile is “built to entertain”


First we learned straight from T-Mobile's website that when the US version of the HTC HD2 comes to the carrier next month, it will be packing more ROM and RAM than its international counterparts.

Then a recently leaked ROM revealed that the American model would come equipped with the Swype keyboard and new Documents and Reader tabs, the latter relying on Barnes & Noble to fill its virtual bookshelf with ebooks.

And now it's back to T-Mobile again to find out that the HD2 is being billed as a phone that is "built to entertain." The still unpriced handset will be preloaded with MobiTV for streaming TV shows, Blockbuster for downloading and watching movies, Barnes & Noble for the aforementioned ebooks, and Gogo Inflight Internet for getting online while you're in the air. In addition to these applications, full versions of Transformers and Transformers 2 will also be taking advantage of the HD2's extra storage.

I don't have any regrets about importing my HD2 from Singapore last month for use as a non-phone, non-3G MID, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't beginning to feel a little left out. The good news is that I'm sure most, if not all, of the T-Mobile stuff will find its way to xda-developers for others to enjoy (some of the apps probably have regional restrictions) in due time.
