Death by Twitter for HTC smartphone's U.S. releaseThe gadget obessives at Gizmodo were both stoked and wary about Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC's widescreen Windows mobile phone, which packs an 800x480-pixel screen compared to the iPhone's 480-by-320 display. There have been rumors that HTC wasn't going to sell the HD in America, following its intro to Europe and Asia. The bad news is now Twitter official: "sad news, US. we looked into it- by the time we could bring Touch HD to the states, it would be old news." So much easier than a press release.
