HTC HD2 - Travel Pictures around Southeast Asia

HTC HD2 - Travel Pictures around Southeast Asia. I recently got back from Singapore on June 2010 from a media event launching the much talked about Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Singapore so I managed to take some pictures from my room with the HTC HD2 Smartphone. Below are some of the pictures taken during my stay there. No photoshop involved.

In the last three months of April, May and June 2010, I visited Shanghai, Vietnam and Sabah Borneo bringing along my HTC HD2 to test out the phone and also the camera for traveling purposes. Pictures you see here are all taken with the HTC Smartphone which runs on Windows.

All the HTC H2 pictures above were taken from April 2010 till June 1st 2010 using the Windows driven smart phone. Smartphones are already popular around the world and I cannot wait for the next generation smartphone to try out on my future travels. 

Overall, the HTC HD2 has a super large screen of 4.3" inches which makes taking photos easy. Applications are pretty much simple to use and the touch interface is not too bad. As for the 5 megapixel camera, there is a number of functions you can use for your pics and the dual LED flashlight was amazing! Battery life is similar to other touch phones and changing your sim card was relatively easy on travels.

Personally, I have to say that one of the best camera phones I have used in a very long time with out any hassles or problems would be the HTC HD2.

Araleling, thank you for your kind words. Yes, this dog apparently dresses up for many occasions. Last I heard, the dog was dressed in all red for Chinese New Year.

Wonderful shots! Sounds like a nice light gadget to carry around.

Fufu, thanks, no I did not go as when I was there it was only April but I saw some of the Pavilions :)

Nancie, thank you and yes, it is a pretty swanky gadget especially with the super large screen. Looks like a mini Nintendo DS.
