HTC has just launched its first Windows powered phone that comes with their HTC Sense personalisation technology HTC.

The HTC HD2 uses Qualcomm's 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and comes with a 4.3" capacitive touchscreen. With it, users can just pinch their fingers on the screen to resize websites and documents, while make other finger movements to zoom in further.

"At HTC we believe that the best things in life should be experienced, not explained. HTC Sense is based on this principle by making the phone more simple and natural to use and by enabling people to personalise their mobile experience in their own unique way. With HTC Sense, the HTC HD2 melds the power and flexibility of the Windows platform with the most advanced phone we've ever created," Florian Seiche,VP at HTC EMEA.

The HTC HD2 is initially being sold in the United Arab Emirates for AED 3,299 but will soon be available in other Middle Eastern countries.

The phone also has an optional car kit that automatically transforms the user interface into a finger friendly in-car navigation experience for driving.
