The fate of the mighty HTC HD2 seems to be getting murkier by the minute: ... Windows Mobile News forum
Microsoft sending mixed signals on Windows Phone 7, HTC HD2 still in Limbo
The fate of the mighty HTC HD2 seems to be getting murkier by the minute: Microsoft UK VP Alex Reeve said last week that an upgrade to Windows Phone 7 Series might be left up to hardware partners, but now Natasha Kwan, General Manager for Microsoft's Asia Pacific Mobile Communications Business says the 1GHz handset "doesn't qualify because it doesn't have the three buttons" required by WP7. Making matters even less clear, we asked Microsoft's Director of Consumer Experiences Aaron Woodman about the HD2 directly on The Engadget Show, and he politely declined to tell us about the device's upgradability, and said that WP7's final required specs would be revealed at MIX '10. We'll be honest: we're taking all this confusion to mean that Microsoft hasn't quite figured out how to say the HD2 is at a dead end just before it launches on T-Mobile US, but hey -- maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised at MIX.

I don't think I would enjoy WM7; it has to much going in the background for me. Reminds me of the Moto Blur.
When I used the cliq for a two month run, battery life was poor, and the blur didn't update that well. I am thinking
that the same will go for WM7 as well.
..........SHAKE N BAKE..........
I have to think somewhere in all the fuss they would prefer u have to purchase a new device in order to get Window Phone 7.
IDK? Just thinking they are greedy like everyone else and need the revenue and upgrading a current phone does not help them make money.
This is the reason I am making the switch this weekend but I'm not waiting for Windows Mobile 7 (I saw the previwe pics of it and already can't stand it. Had the same thought about MotoBlur when it came out). I've used Windows Mobile back when it was WM 2003 but switched to BB when the WM devices available didn't appeal to me. The Touch Pro 2 has my full attention and I'm getting it this weekend.
