HTC release software fix for the HD2 camera *pink spot* issues

10 December, 2009

HTC HD2 certainly is a fine piece of technology - we've got the review up there to prove it. Unfortunately its 5 megapixel camera seems to have a rather *pink* spot for images plaguing every other unit out there. Luckily, HTC kept to their promise and quickly delivered a remedy so the HD2 owners can have a happier life now.

In case you have somehow missed what the fuss is all about, checking out this article should bring you up to speed.

As of today HTC have released a "Digital Picture Enhancement" for the HTC HD2 that fixes the issues. Having one of them troubled units at the office we just tested it ourselves and we are happy to confirm that it does a marvelous job. As you can see from the photos below the pink spot is completely gone after we installed the 3-second fix and there is no visible loss of quality of the affected area.

But the good news doesn't end here. HTC also released a 1.48 ROM update for the HD2, which improves a few of the other features of the device.

According to the manufacturer the software update should enhance the music player behavior, the Opera browser auto rotation and the sound quality during a call. Now we've never had issues with those things in the first place but perhaps other have had some. We couldn't try the update ourselves, as the HTC download seem down at the moment.

You can get the pink spot fix over here and the new ROM here. Don't forget to drop us a line in the comments section, telling how those worked out for you.
