    Why have you created a new thread? The old HTC Desire HD UK release thread hasn't been removed. All that happened was you were warned by a mod over your behaviour. Just act like a grown up and move on. We don't need numerous threads on the same subject.

    Well Mobile Phones Direct have advised there will be delays and they will aim to ship end of October. Basically what we already knew;

    Code (Text):
    1. "
    2. PLEASE ALLOW 17 DAYS FOR
    3. FREE CITYLINK DELIVERY
    4.  
    5. We are an HTC ultimate partner - HTC have advised of delays due to Android OS testing. Limited stock is expected end Oct and we will supply Desire HD on a first ordered first delivered basis. Order Now and receive a Free 8GB memory card.
    The fact that they are saying you get a free 8GB card is amusing because HTC bundle it in anyway!.

    Something tells me I won't be seeing this baby until Nov. I ordered it from Amazon so it will be a while.

    Not to mention you may even get some cashback with them which will drill the price down cheaper.

    Well the Android App Market is still playing catch-up with the Apple App Store so imagine how far behind WP7 is gonna be with apps.

    That's the main thing that puts me off it anyway.
