HD2 with Sliding Keyboard Coming Soon?
We’ve been waiting for the HTC HD2 Pro, that is, an HD2 with a slide-out keyboard, ever since the original was released last year. It looks like HTC may be working on such a device, called the Leo-S, thanks to some clues found in the registry of a ROM by XDA user Xmoo:
Contained in registry keys in the ROM, it makes mention of a HTC Leo-S with the right registry keys for a slide-out QWERTY device (having said that, current HTC HD2 ROMs contain the same registry keys).
From Xmoo’s Twitter:
HTC LEO-S SPL 3.0 does flash on a HTC HD2! You can revert back to older SPL’s!! Enjoy :-) http://twitpic.com/1vizpv
Leo-S should be a Leo with KEYBOARD (3.01.405.T1), normal @HTC HD2 will get upgrade 1.78.911.1 with OS 5.2.21905.5.0.93
It’s likely that if this device is indeed released, it’s going to be running Windows Phone 7, and not legacy Windows Mobile.
