HTC HD2 hands-on previews

Wired got a chance to play a bit with the new HTC HD2 / Leo:

The first thing you notice is the enormous 4.3-inch screen, which sits in a slender handset barely bigger than the model it replaces. It makes the iPhone’s 3.5-inch screen look rather measly in comparison, and while it doesn’t match Apple’s uncompromising design aesthetic, it is a handsome phone. The old HD was good-looking in a workmanlike kind of way, but its younger brother has a sharper suit and a better haircut.

It’s also nimbler, faster and more responsive. Instead of the old model’s pressure-sensitive resistive touchscreen, which required a firm tap of the fingernail (or a prod of the stylus), the new phone comes with a sensitive capacitive screen, which responds to a gentle sweep of the finger – and to the multi-touch zoom gestures that Apple made famous. It’s joyfully smooth and fast too, thanks to its 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
