There’s no large-capacity built-in storage so it has to come from a microSD card. The Li-Ion battery is also rated at 1230 mAh. Based on previous handset prices of HTC HD here in the Philippines, it won’t be a surprise if this unit sells for over Php50,000 when it lands here.

  1. 50,000 bucks? Oh my…they should have included a large capacity hard drive to make it more appealing IMHO.

    my 50,000 can go along way…but definitely not on this…I can still use my old reliable 12 year old nokia 3310.

    Can’t wait til the Android version!

    I like the generous screen size. DLNA and 802.11n support will be nicer. But yeah, too expensive for me at least.

  5. eithan says:

    i’d still prefer N900 than this one.

  6. Darren says:

    50K? that’s too much, WTF is HTC thinking?

  7. BungeeJump says:

    for 50k, i will buy a vios instead.

  8. Young says:

    Im tempted to trade in my Touch HD for this… The Snapdragon processor is wicked!

  9. 50 k for this?!!!

    I think I need to reconsider that 35K iphone!!

  10. boybawang says:

    I have read it somewhere that HTC admitted that their phones are overpriced.

  11. Ann says:

    Me likey!

    My HTC TYTN II looks Jurassic next to this baby.

  12. Enyaj says:

    Yes 50K is expensive but for me it is worth it since it makes my life a lot easier and a lot more fun. Definitely not for avereage users. Only for fanatics. I currently have the Touch HD but I’m going to buy this as soon as it hits the market!!!

  13. lala says:

    I don’t think it will be priced as 50,000 pesos.. Maybe it will be a little lower.. Since I asked one HTC store here

  14. Joe Kano says:

    50k is way over the top. The Omnia 2 16GB is selling around 28K many places. & the Omnia 2 has LED, not the older TFT technology. I doubt the HD2 will be over 30-35k if HTC gets their act together

  15. ted says:

    any update on telcos providing this model?

  16. Sherwin says:

    50K? I think Samsung Omnia has the same feature *cough* cooked rom *cough* except for the Screen.

  21. Android fans will be happy to know that the EVO is coming out.

  22. i already have this phone, but I’m having trouble with the internet settings of the phone.

    I asked globe and sun, both of their tech people don’t know how to setup the phone. Really incredible..

    can anyone help?

  23. xtian63 says:

    ask them for the standard settings for whatever windows mobile 6.5 device they have and it should be the same

  24. I bought my HD2 virtually month in the past, already got lot of apps on it but need extra of course. Still need to to find higher PDF reader, with higher fullscreen mode and multitouch. Planning install android on it however it is going to be now not very soon.

  25. Jovel says:

    i’m gonna get this phone really soon! haha..i think my touch viva needs a good rest after all those flashing..

    too bad evo 4g wouldn’t be available too soon
