It's a common occurence in the wireless industry - European handsets are feature packed, while their US counterparts are watered down.  It's something we see all too often, so when the reverse happens, we're taken aback.

The T-Mobile-bound HTC HD2 will sport 576MB of RAM while ROM is boosted to 1GB from 512MB.  While the unlocked HD2 offers a 4 GB microSD card out of the box, the T-Mobile version will offer a 16 GB card.  Identical features include a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, Windows Mobile 6.5 (though there's talk that the T-Mobile version will get Windows Mobile 7 at launch or shortly thereafter), and a 4.3-inch HD display.

Beautiful piece of hardware, combined with improved specifications and 3G connectivity, makes the T-Mobile HD2 a winner in my book.  Now, if we could get Android on the unit...it would be perfect.  Windows Mobile fans, what do you think, given this new information?  If you were on the fence, are you going to buy one now?
