    The HTC HD2 looks simply amazing. It's not out in the US yet, but should be out "early 2010".

    It runs WinMo 6.5 with HTC Sense and looks absolutely amazing. While it isn't perfect what smartphone platform is? Here's the review...

    Also note, this is hot stuff! As in VERY RECENT! Good luck!

    Well here's why I think Palm is ditching WiMo.

    1. WebOS is Linux based, its easy to write code for an open system and there are no license fees.
    2. Palm has direct control over WebOS, it can add or remove features and not rely on a 3rd party company.
    3. WiMo has never really been a popular format, its not user friendly, and doesn't attract new users.
    4. WiMo is losing market share.
    5. Uses Linux and Java which run on anything hardware and are easy to port or build apps for.
    6. Coolness factor as well. WiMo looks like a boring old desktop, WebOS can be customized and GUI enhancements.

    Sadly, I'm facing switching to a different phone OS as well. Looks like I'm going to go with an Android based phone. It's projected to exceed iPhone's market share in a few years and I need to settle on a platform with some legs so I can play around with developing for it.
    I am not sure if I believe those projections. I do think that Android will at least be the number 3 platform after Apple & RIM and WM will probably be the number 4 platform with a tiny market share.

    I strongly considered replacing my PalmOS device with a WM device such as the Treo Pro. Palms decision to abandon that platform as well was one negative, the other was the clunky screen real estate wasting UI (turns a 320x320 screen into a 320x240 screen).

    However, I found it impossible to resist the Blackberry Bold 9700 which was selling for $50 last weekend. A bit boring but very fast and comes with a beautiful 480x360 res screen. Web browsing is not brilliant but better than PalmOS or WM.

    I liked winmo also. It was probably just to complicated for some people. And everything my pre dont do, it did fine. The webos has no depth at all. I'm starting to consider an android, just to have a robust os again.

    i went to the sprint store and was checking out the htc pro 2 demo, and they were having a issue with it...the phone wouldnt rotate back to regular view...it was locked or something in the sideway format...

    so even while playing with the phone as it was, i wasnt impressed at all with it. having to slide my phone up to use the keypad reminds me of my sidekick days. i dunno, i just didnt feel the phone.

    i was checking out the other models of window mobile phones, and i saw the samsung intrepid, that had a feel of the treo, but the icon layout was all nutballs. we shall see what i go with soon
