Video Review – HTC HD2

If you haven’t seen the phone in action, check out the reviews above.  My initial thoughts -

  • HUGE screen
  • LARGE phone
  • new Sense interface still as sluggish as the old TouchFLO interface (not better with Windows Mobile 6.5)

Would I want to buy one? nah, not now.  Check out this review from Engadget if you want to know more about the HTC HD2.

Street price: HK$5,680 (US$728) from www.JipJipMobile.com

iPhone 3GS Review Coming Soon

Gonna take a week long to seriously test out the iPhone 3GS before I give you the lown down on the new version and the new OS.  Check back.

Two things noticed so far -
