Android HTC HD 2 rumours refuted

Rumours that an Android version of the HTC HD2 is on the way have been dismissed by HTC's chief executive.

Peter Chou rebuffed speculation over a new edition of the phone powered by Google’s operating system in an exclusive interview with US business journal Forbes.

Mr Chou acknowledged that although such a device would be viable, at the moment the company is focussing on the Windows Mobile 6.5-powered version of the handset.

He said: "Technically, we could make the HD2 an Android phone, but I have to take care of Windows Mobile.

“We're working hard on these kinds of products to get excitement about Windows Mobile back”.

Available to pre-order now from Top 10 Mobile Phones, the HD2 features a widget-based homescreen that allows users to customise their phone and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset.

The media-optimised forthcoming mobile phone is also home to a five megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash and a large 4.3-inch touchscreen.
