    looks like most retailers selling sim free will be shipping next week. But why not Amazon!!! I have an order with them, yet they're saying another month!

    On the site here:
    htc desire hd - pre-order* contract mobile phone from phones 4u

    "Delivery on or before the 19th" apparently.

    Kind of sounds like stock might be due in on Monday, doesn't it... We will see.

    If you look very carefully you will see the colour of the back of the HTC Desire HD is clearly dark brown/copper but i'm positive i've seen videos where the back of the handset is black. It's the black HTC Desire HD i really, really want.

    So who's selling this simfree? Does anyone know?

    I think there are three variations.

    Brownish - Seems to be the normal one, as with the original desire. This looks like the one the sim free guys are all selling (expansys, clove, etc)

    Black - Someone posted an internal screenshot from orange showing the black one, which i agree is nicest. The original desire black was an orange exclusive so it's plausible this is too.

    Silver/Grey - Carphone warehouse claim to have this as an exclusive. Probably will be available similar free. Not sure what it looks like yet.

    The black one to me just makes it look super sexy. So i hope there's at least one retailer selling it as black sim-free but i think you're probably right that most of them will be selling dark brown/copper. Just gotta find out if anyone does have the black version.

    First off, I apologise for mass one reply to quote everything, but this way it doesn't look like I am spamming lol.

    Yeah, a guy at work also pointed it out to me. He didn't order his as he was too sceptical.

    Only 48 hours ;) lol.

    Was like that since Mon :)

    See image.

    Sorry for the massive arrows..It's late at night and I've lost the will lol.

    Not a good start from T-Mobile, but end of the day, the guys in the warehouse are only human right :)

    I'm tipping HTC has made limited stock of this handset to create massive demand for it. Nintendo did it with the Wii.

    All in all, I think Amazon are looking for suppliers (maybe not tried alibaba yet ;) ) to get them to customers.

    Could you clarify one thing? These pics of you and the phone. Is this something you're proposing to do once the phone has shipped to the general public? If so, what's the point? We could all do it then. If you are not going to get the phone before us - and you haven't suggested you will - what on earth are you going on about?

    This truth thing you talk about: we don't believe you have any 'inside information'. How will a photo of you and the HD change that?

    So looking at Spencer's pic, they are still aiming for end of October, even if you order now. Bodes well for me ordering on the 8th

    As for the colour, Bronze/Copper suits me, makes a change from the handsets I've had before. It will have a case for it's own protection anyway, hoping to get a better choice of ones to buy once the phone is released

    i was saying i will will post the pics up, before you get yours, why would i bother posting pics up when its available to the general public? next week im attending a road map for new phones next year, im only interested in android, im getting the Desire HD, but it will only last me 3-4 months, as i will be gooing for gingerbread, Desire HD does not accept that full resoulotion.
