    Don't worry about it, if I end up with a Desire HD within a few months there will be something else that makes it look like a bad purchase. Just be happy with what you have and remember you'l be upgrading your desire to the new hotness while we're still stuck on a contract and the circle of life continues...

    This is the beauty of buying sim-free and part financing them with the sale of the previous one.

    My Desire HD is on order from Handtec who claim that they should be getting them in around next Thursday (7/10) and will hopefully be sending orders straight out.

    Hope that wasn't just sales bollox cos I'm looking forward to getting to some HD movies with AC3 soundtracks on it.

    Again, what is your source of information, or you just put out dates at random ? The only date with 29th was the release date of T-Mobile G2 - but that day already passed as G2's started to be sent out all over USA.

    I've heard on twitter that they'll be shipping from the 11th October. Handtec website still shows "Stock due: 4th Oct" and they're supposed to be an official HTC retailer.

    No doubt we'll get a more solid date around the end of next week.

    Mobile Phones Direct look like they have some good deals on. Are they a decent company to buy from?

    Link please?

    I've heard 6th october with the sim free being released on the 11th

    I will send an email to HTC and networks we know who will be supplying to get some more info. Best thing really any of us can do.

    Who's twitter is that? HTC's?

    I've bought 2 handsets via them and not had any issues yet.

    I know retail will be behind online but the earliest estimate i could get from CW Aberdeen was the end of November.

    My previous Twitter quote was from one of the trusted Android resources out there. However, I've asked @HTC_eur to comment on a solid UK date for unlocked SIM-free Desire HD release.

    Probably get a reply after it's out. :rolleyes:

    Amazon answered to my question about the new date for Desire Z (and if it comes with SD card) :

    Desire HD still has the same date, so that one will probably get a launch @ 11th.

    Yet the HD apparently comes with an 8Gb card. They could have at least thrown in a 4Gb one with the Z.

    Still hoping for my HD by next weekend then. <prays>

    Keep seeing nods to the above on Twitter too like CPW are the bee-all and end-all when it comes to mobile phones........lol.

    What is with the recent trend by hardware manufacturers of releasing stuff within a few weeks of announcing it? The launch is this near, just give us a frikkin' date already..........GGGGRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

    I'm confident that the HTC will bundle in a memory card.

    With my Hero Orange or HTC didn't state that they would include one but there was...Gotta remember, they bundle their HTC sync onto the memory card, they don't send out on CD :)

    So I'm tipping memory card.

    I remember the good ol days of "The Link" stores..always released about 48 hours before CPW hehe.
