Sheesh. The HTC HD2 isn’t even out yet. But Pocketnow already is speculating about a younger sibling, the HD2 Pro, an HD2 with a slide out keyboard and a slightly smaller 4” screen. Here’s the argument:
“Think about it: along with the Touch Diamond came the keyboard version for the professional user, the Touch Pro. And along with the Diamond2 came the keyboard version for the professional user, the Touch Pro2. See the trend? Each generation HTC releases a core flagship device without a keyboard (among other niche devices), then changes the form factor to appease those that crave a hardware keyboard. And this will undoubtedly happen with the HD2.”
We may find out in a few months if this plausible speculation is correct. Pocketnow thinks the HD2 Pro may be announced at the Mobile World Congress in February 2010.
