HTC HD2 for T-Mobile gets official launch date

Quickly following up a late leak, T-Mobile tonight confirmed the launch details of its version of the HTC HD2. The extra-large Windows Mobile smartphone will arrive in stores on March 24th and will cost $200 when subsidized by a two-year contract. Even More Plus plan subscribers can also pay the $450 unsubsidized price up front in return for lower rates.

The T-Mobile version of the HD2 switches to the US carrier's native 3G network but also comes with several preloaded apps, including Barnes & Noble's e-reader, Blockbuster's movie streaming service and MobiTV for Internet streaming TV. A pair of incentives are also preloaded, including six months of free Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi and both modern-day Transformers movies.

HTC's handset remains the most advanced Windows Mobile 6.5 device to date and is the first with a capacitive touchscreen and multi-touch gestures, both owing to custom work by its creator and not Microsoft. A quick 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi and microSDHC storage put it in the mid-to-high range. Despite its capabilities, however, it won't be eligible for upgrading to Windows Phone 7 due to its control layout.
