HTC Touch HD 2 to run Android, bump up CPU speed, more

It isnt windows but its still an nice option.

http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2009/...pu-speed-more/

In a world overflowing with full touchscreen handsets, HTC’s design and build quality is among the best. Recent handsets supporting that statement include the myTouch 3G, the Hero, the Hero and of course the Touch HD seen above. HTC fans may have new cause for celebration today as a rumor suggests the sequel to the the device that started the “HD” naming trend among handsets may be on the horizon. Register Hardware reports that conversations with HTC have drummed up some info on the upcoming Touch HD 2 (or more likely touch “HD2″ to maintain the Pro, Pro2 format). The blog reports that HTC’s upcoming HD sequel will run Android as opposed to Windows Mobile as found in its predecessor; a move we wouldn’t mind at all. Other rumored tidbits include a faster 628 MHz processor, up from 528 MHz in the original HD, and a 3.8-inch touchscreen display just like the HD. The presence of Android could lead to a capacitive screen however, though that’s just speculation on our part. Hopefully we’ll get official word from HTC soon, or at least a good old fashioned leak with some evidence to support it. Who knows, maybe we’ll even get some HD love in the US this time around.

Sprint so needs to carry this. Thats exactly what i want. A 3.6 - 3.8 inch screen that runs android. With the big screen i wont need a hardware keyboard which will keep the phone thin. =D>=D>=D>

Re: HTC Touch HD 2 to run Android, bump up CPU speed, more

I read (can't remember the link) the resolution was remaining at 480 x 800 (maybe this was speculation on the part of the author, I'm not sure). Would Android be able to support this resolution? All Android handsets on the market are 320 x 480 at this time. I know some 240 x 320 versions are on their way. But I have heard/seen no rumors of higher resolutions being supported.

WMPowerUser seems to think this rumor is wrong:
