The HOT HD9 — a new HTC HD2 knockoff — is a perfect example of this trend. If the rumored specs are true, it packs a serious punch too.
HTC’s got a press conference planned for Oct 7th in China and it’s got the tech nuts, like us, here all a-buzz! After their London press conference on the 15th of this month and their release of the Desire HD and the Evo 4G, what can we expect from them in China next week?
