HTC HD2 Rugged Mobile Review

Category : HTC, Mobile Phones

The HTC Touch HD2 is essentially a toughened up version of the HTC Touch HD. With a special 4.3 inch touchscreen (displays up to 65,000 colours with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels) that hardens upon impact to protect the phone and a unique thick stylus designed to be usable even wearing thick gloves. Weighing in at 157 grams and measuring 120.5mm x 67mm x 11mm, this is a compact smartphone designed to take some knocks! Running on Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional with the pocket office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and a PDF viewer) installed, the HTC HD2 Rugged is ready to face the everyday challenges of work and play.

The HD2 Rugged is packed with the latest features such as a 5 megapixel camera (with geo-tagging, autofocus, dual LED flash and video recording capability), touchscreen with auto-rotation and handwriting recognition, Quad band reception and 3G HSDPA, GPRS and EDGE support, WiFi built in and Bluetooth A2DP support.

Although this phone is designed to be used as a professional robust handset for those working outdoors and/or those who have active occupations or hobbies, it does not disappoint in terms of entertainment. With dedicated camera key taking photos and recording video is fast and fun, videos can be played in WMV, 3GP, MPEG4, 3G2, M4V, AVI, and ASF formats. The integrated music player supporting all the popular file formats (including mp3) offers a great listening experience and the inclusion of a standard 3.5mm headphone jack means users can simply plug in their favourite headphones. An FM radio is also included and the phone supports downloadable games.

Connectivity options are numerous with internet access through HSDPA connection, WiFi hotspots, EDGE, GPRS, micro-USB and Bluetooth. memory storage of up to 32Gb (via microSd card) means you can store all your music, video and photos easily on the HTC HD2 Rugged.

Advantages: Amazing Tech21 d3o protection case (a specially engineered material made with intelligent molecules. They flow with the product but upon shock, lock together to absorb the impact energy). Specially designed stylus easy to use in all situations even with thick gloves. Good 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flashlight, 3.5mm stereo audio jack, Windows Media Player, HSDPA, GPRS/EDGE , WiFi, Bluetooth A2DP, long battery life. Good deals on Orange.

Disadvantages: Touchscreen not as slick as class leaders, uses Windows 6.5 operating system, not in same league as the latest Windows 7.
