No Android Version of HTC HD2 After All?S

Hopes may be dashed on that rumored Android equivalent of the HD2. HTC's CEO, Peter Chou, tells Forbes that "technically, we could make the HD2 an Android phone, but I have to take care of Windows Mobile." Qué?

He says they're working hard to "get excitement about Windows Mobile back." After WinMo 6.5, I guess someone needs to. HTC has said it's developing for the two platforms separately, so if there is to be no Android HD2, hopefully something better will come along.

If you're craving an Android/1GHz Snapdragon pairing, look out for the upcoming Sony Xperia X3 and Acer Liquid.

Chou also told Forbes that as a smaller company, HTC needs to be picky about what types of products it makes. The inference is that it's likely we won't see any HTC netbooks or eReaders any time soon. Good, because I'd rather see something as good as the HD2 with Android 2.0. And soon.
