According to Slashgear looks like the HTC HD2 AKA the Leo will grace the US after all.  The HD2 will be sporting Windows Mobile 6.5 on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, with a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen and 5-megapixel autofocus camera; it’s also the first Windows Phone to support both multi-touch and HTC Sense.

Perhaps best of all, HTC CEO Peter Chou has confirmed that HTC will be offering a US 3G version of the HD2 in Q1 2010.  

The HD2 has managed to pack in a display half an inch bigger than that of the Touch HD but with only a minimal increase in size – it measures 120.5 x 67 x 11 mm and weighs 157g with the 1,230mAh battery – thanks to the dramatically thin bezel. The HD2 offers HSPA/WCDMA (900/2100) and quadband GSM, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. It also had a 3.5mm headphones socket and microUSB port, accelerometer, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. Runtime estimates from the standard 1,230mAh battery are up to 320 minutes WCDMA talktime or 390 hours standby; alternatively you can watch up to 8hrs of video or listen to up to 12hrs of music.

Speculation from WMExperts claims that Verizon can be ruled out since the launch of the HTC Imagio and has also ruled out AT&T because of the Pure.  For now all we can do is sit back and wait.
