I've been using HD2 (Leo) for sometimes and I can say that its the best smartphone ever. I've been using WP7 on it, Android and WinMo 6.5, I know it support Meego (Nokia) and Ubuntu. But don't want to try it because MIUI android that I'm currently using are SUPERB. Only drawback are heats if used excessively. But for an old model, its a legend.

I like hd2. Because it is very much customizable.
Ubuntu and andriod runs great on it. You can even upgrade it to wp7.
I like its camera quality..

It appears that an apple fanboy wrote this article and failed to include some of the more important comparisons.  The iPhone has a 5 MP camera, the HD2 has 8 MP. The iPhone requires wi-fi for video chats, the HD2 doesn't. Sure the iPhone supports 802.11n, but 90% of all hotspots are 802.11b/g so that's a wasted feature. The HD2 supports Flash and Java... iPhone doesn't. The HD2 has USB connectivity, scalable memory, and removable battery.. iPhone doesn't. The HD2 has built in FM radio.. iPhone wishes it was an HD2 at this point. And here's the kicker, the HD2 has been out since October 2009, the iPhone 4 released nearly 7 months later and it costs nearly twice as much.

Definitely HD2 potential possibilities are endless. Beautiful and cool customization on homescreen by built in htcsense and customized by cht cookie or spbshell or iphonelook alike or htcsense android. Fast and stable custom built ROM's are everywhere to choose. It can run 2 os dual boot with winmo6.5 and android or phone7 and android or stick to either one. Free apps are everywhere in the internet. Apps combined with desktop win7 and winmobile are extremely great to manage your life both personal and business. HD2 can serve as viewer while on the go for apps organized in desktop.

What else can you ask for?

When you install android on to the HD2 you better yourself then the iphone with opening your back up to 720p(hd), and way more opensource or free apps, better google syncing lot faster device it really dose matter that software you have on this device if iphone had a nand android build it would not be any better as the HD2 as better screen revanue and better ram to run its apps

And HD2 can be used for your business and work as well. It has flawless integration with win7 application softwares directly in your computer and device without going online.
