The original Touch HD - launched late last year - runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. But the phone firm told us that the updated version - to be called, unsurprisingly, the Touch HD 2 - will use Google's Android OS instead.

HTC's decision to swap to Android isn't a great surprise, as the firm's already shown great favour towards the OS, with releases like the T-Mobile G1, Vodafone Magic and the Hero.

However, it is odd that HTC chose not to embrace Microsoft's inbound Windows Mobile update - version 6.5 - on the Touch HD 2.

A source familiar with HTC's plans also told Register Hardware that the Touch HD 2 will be significantly faster than the original - and faster than the vast majority of HTC handsets to date.

Most high-end HTC models currently sport run on a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, the mole said, but the Touch HD 2 will use a 628MHz Qualcomm chip. The chip isn't clocked as high as the 800MHz processor inside Samsung's Jet phone, but it's a step in the right direction for HTC.

The Touch HD 2 will also feature a 3.8in touchscreen, the source said - presumably the same 480 x 800 display used in the original Touch.

A formal launch date and price for the updated HTC handset haven't been announced.
