Windows Mobile 7 on the HD2 Confirmed, Again

Remember when HTC Russia confirmed that the HD2 would get the Windows Mobile 7 update, and then took it back? Well, time to put another mark in the column in favor of an HTC HD2 Windows Mobile 7 upgrade. This time it’s from an email from an HTC rep sent to someone from XDA. Here is the text:

Dear Toby

Thank you for your enquiry about HD2

What we do it ROM Upgrades from our website, however 6.5 windows mobile has only been out 2 months and windows mobile 7 hasn’t even been developed. This wont be out until next november at the earliest. But when it is available it will be a free download.

If these steps have not helped, please let me know by responding using the link provided and I will be happy to check again for you.

Best regards,

Terry Snelling

Our opinion is that the HD2, as the benchmark Windows Mobile HTC device currently, will indeed see the Windows Mobile 7 upgrade, especially now that we’ve heard from HTC (albeit unofficially) twice.

Thanks for the tip, Taimur.
