Anastasia End-Key for HD2
The “Quick List” application that loads on a long press of the end call/power key was a very sensible extension of the power button’s functionality, especially on a WinMo device with as few buttons as the HD2.

Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
