HTC Leo Launching as the HD2 On O2 In October, Unlocked For $800; Multitouch Confirmed But Doesn't Work in IE Mobile -- Video of UI

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

It looks like the HTC Leo will really be launching as the HTC HD2 over in the UK on O2. This promo material has just confirmed that it will be launching for free on O2 1200, which means that you'll have to pay £45 ($72 USD) a month on an 18-month contract. We're also hearing that if you want to get it unlocked in Europe it'll cost around €550 ($806 USD) to €600 ($880 USD).

So, now that the HD2 will be launching early next month - rumoured to be October 12th - we've also got more details about the handset. It has been confirmed that the HD2 will have a 4.3-inch multi-touchscreen capacitive display, but the multitouch functions will not work in the Internet Explorer mobile browser, which definitely sucks. Maybe Microsoft will decide to update IE Mobile so that pinch and zoom will work. We can only hope. Below is a video of the HTC HD2's TouchFLO 3D UI with Twitter integration.
