And imagine what a big splash this beautiful phone could have made just a few months ago. As it is now, Microsoft has already announced Windows Phone and said, several times, that HD2 owners will not be able to upgrade. So that's sort of the definition of "deflating" when it comes to smart phones, and I have to think it really tempers the HD2's US launch. Alas, here it is. I can't imagine many people are going to bother.

It's a great looking phone, it really is. And you have to see it in person to appreciate the size of its screen and the thinness of the overall time. But too little too late? Oh yeah.
