Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch  

The HTC HD2 uses a capacitive touchscreen, but it sticks with the older Windows Mobile 6.5 instead of the recently updated 6.5.3 version. WinMo 6.5 did not support capacitive screens, this function was built into the HD2 by HTC, and sometimes the feature feels tacked on. Occasionally, my taps wouldn't register, especially on hyperlinks in the Opera Web browser. There were a few occasions where the touch input felt buggy, though it was never a serious problem.

The HD2 makes use of a few rudimentary gestures. You can pinch and zoom in a few spots, like the Web browser and the photo gallery, but this feature isn't available throughout the phone, especially not in 3rd party software, like navigation apps.
