The HTC HD2 (formerly known as the HTC Leo) is set to start shipping in the UK from 20 November. But the SIM-free version looks set to set punters back £550 for the priviliege.

The smartphone features a 4.3-inch touchscreen running Windows Phone 6.5. It also very much looks like the phone will feature a capacitive touchscreen as it will sport a pinch to zoom functionality. Inside, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The company has also put the Sense UI skin on Winodws Phone, presumably in a bid to hide the normal user interface from prying eyes. Like most other manufacturers, it has made a shed of of tweaks in order to make the phone run fast.

The handset also comes with 5-Megapixel camera with dual LED flash and auto-focus, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, a standard headphone jack, HSUPA and GPS.
