HTC Leo to Be Officially Known as HTC HD 2Putting HD in your name is all the rage. The thinking must be that if you put HD in your moniker, they will come, buy it, brag about it, be happy and buy your next device as well. So the HTC Leo is jumping on that same bandwagon and laughing maniacally.

The Leo, or HD2, is that large and in charge handset that we saw earlier this month. The HTC HD 2 will sport a 4.3-inch display, which is awesome for video and it looks like it will have a micro-USB connector as well.

Some features include a 3.6-inch WVGA display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, AWS 3G and GPS. It also features Straight Talk technology which should make this phone one of the best speakerphones out there. Frequent conference callers will love it. The color is called “mocha”.

HTC Hero pre-order at Amazon UK

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2009

HTC Hero pre-order at Amazon UKAmazon.co.uk is now offering the HTC Hero for pre-order. The Android handset has been listed to retail for £429.99 each. July 15th is the expected shipping date, but nothing is certain so don’t be surprised if the date changes.

At £429.99, that’s a pretty heavy price tag. Converted, we’re talking about $700 or more. Anyone going to bite at that price? They say it will be dispatched and sold by Amazon.co.uk themselves, so we don’t know whether other retailers and the carriers themselves will offer it earlier or later than that date.

HTC Magic offers Microsoft Exchange supportLooks like the HTC Magic will feature Microsoft Exchange support, which will allow users to synchronize with their Outlook emails, contacts and calendar entries in a hassle-free way. Just make sure you keep your HTC Magic juiced up if you’re relying on a push connection.

This is interesting because there is a lack of native Exchange ActiveSync support on the T-Mobile G1 so far, restricting its use in the corporate world.
