    Got mine direct from HTC.

    Must admit, its a very nice phone. First thing I have done is update...Little bit of a shame I could not transfer anything but my contacts from my Hero but i'll live.

    I will upload some pictures to my personal flickr account in a bit...One I get everything configured and get over the shock of how much bigger the screen is over my Hero lol.

    Mine is here Tuesday! Had ordered Friday, was supposed to be here Monday, but I had a funny feeling, and sure enough, what was being sent was the desire graphite. :rolleyes:

    If I am going to be tethered to this one for awhile, I want to be in love with it! :p

    hah what happened to the "I'll get it in Hong kong!" ? How much did you get it from HTC? Was this that little condition you were talking about? about reviewing it on your website and stuff?

    I've only just got back into the house, I popped out for a while and will be going out again.

    Review will probably be tomorrow in all fairness, I need to get stuff sorted out (my settings xD)

    I won't reveal price simply because I've been told not to as part of the agreement but its lower than retail sim free price :).

    I was going to get it in Hong Kong in all fairness, simple reason being no rush, but since HTC have been epic with me, I'm happy with the terms to getting it at X rate :)

    How did you get it through HTC? Friends in high places?

    Was it worth the wait? :)

    It has great uses..when you have time for it lol.

    I contacted a couple people via other forums who pointed me in the right direction, then I setup a partnership with them with particular terms and tadaa :) All happened really fast but happy overall with the outcome.

    Worth the wait..Yes..a worthwhile upgrade from the Hero

    See the above.

    And before anyone asks, I will not disclose the username of the rep I contacted, but Google is your friend and you can find them in network forums ;)

    I've finished the text side of the mini review, Just need to work on some other aspects to back things up.

    Thanks. I would like to note that boot up is increased if you take the battery out. It appears that everything is hibernated to the SD card.

    See for yourself below

    Desire HD Remove Battery & Boot

    SIDE NOTE: Yes I have made it my own a bit more..Mario wallpaper didn't cut it for me..or the battery haha

    Nice review. Quick to the point and pretty much explored most of the areas regarding the phone. Also i happened to spot a typo in the design area.


    Kind of know what i'm talking about. And thanks for including a video and some pictures. It's what a lot of reviews forget to do lol

    Thanks, Spencer - great review. And you've decided me: I'll stick with my Desire. What a relief -

    transferred everything mine from a milestone with Mybackuppro (with root enabled) to the Desire HD with Mybackuppro (once again root enabled) :D

    so all my save games and app settings are intact.

    Nice review. Coming from a Nokia E71 it's a revelation to me and lots to learn - not so much 'how to do things' but 'what it'll do' ...

    Oh, the battery cover. I have nails and it's dead easy. Just with anything that's lightweight plastic you need to watch how you force it.

    Just waiting for my cover to turn up. Oh, and my Nokia 2mm/3mm to microUSB converter cable so I can use my Nokia car charger. (I have my car chargers etc wired in properly behind the dash rather than have wires trail over the outside so it's easier to get the converter. Plus I have a genuine Nokia car charger as the cheapo ones don't charge things like the E71).

    Dave
