    well we're hearing all different things-it could be the networks are getting it first rather than everyonw else who knows

    spencer has been told by mpd it will be unlocked but they could be wrong or they dont know for sure that its been changed

    Thanks for the tip pal, for your comparison question, the prices are public on Apple's web sites (UK % Hong Kong), that's all :D

    Guys, everyone here is England? Will first launch of Desire HD be in England only? If there are rumours about problems which can postpone launch dates, what about other countries launch dates?

    All I can say is Oct 16th was the official release date, but it looks like there could be a delay of a week, I hope there is no delay, but it looks like there is, I already have a dummy/sample, I have a gel skin case,and screen protectors, I just want this phone ASAP!

    Fed up waiting.

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume that this so-called "exclusivity deal" is with Vodafone cos, let's face it, they like to think they're the Microsoft of mobile phones in the UK. MS liking to be first with big game releases and DLC of course but I digress.

    This whole exclusivity rubbish gets on my wick.

    If people are willing to pay full-whack for the handset, let THEM have it first.


    My bleedin' Desire with it's overheating issue is resetting itself more often lately so I really need the HD so I can send this one off to get fixed......<sigh>

    So was O2's website yesterday evening..but that happens quite often.

    No xD

    As I've said before and I will say again, NOBODY is going to get stock any quicker than anywhere else regardless of if they are a reseller or not. Unless you are physically going to go over to Taiwan and wait in the factory whilst they are made, it ain't gonna happen.

    Its just a case of wait and see.

    :)

    We always have delayed releases here..Its just the way of the UK market haha

    Colrey, you have basically waited for links and then plucked another date out. Your sources weren't there then, and they still ain't now!

    Thats what I would like to know

    I wouldn't say that, bare in mind, T-Mobile and HTC have very good relations (they released the first android phone in the UK via the G1)


    Best thing we can all really do is wait and stop GUESSING dates. I could say 14th Jan 2011 and it would be no more viable than any other dates on here.

    NOBODY is going to get the phone in essence all that much quicker than anyone else

    Nothing to do with tawain, handsets are ready, HTC are delaying this. That's why I have my sample.

    As the rest of us have only seen HTC's stock photos or photos taken at trade fairs, it would be very interesting to see your sample. Could you upload some photos of it?

    Calling them tomorrow or every day of the week is not going to speed your delivery up..It's only going to waste your time.

    Because I am in good standing with Cathay Pacific and I won't smuggle people onto planes ;)

    Proof that you have a handset sample please.

    Photo with your username held up on some paper would be useful..Otherwise, baseless.

    Its usually networks that do the handset testing. I used to work at Orange (Broadband side not mobile, but had good insight with it) and they take an age with there mobile testing, especially for android.

    Agreed.

    Android newbie lol
    Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
    Hi guys! Brand new member on Android Forums and soon to be the owner of a brand new HTC Desire HD. My first ever Android smartphone and first ever touchscreen smartphone. So yeah i'm a newbie! :eek: My current phone is a Nokia N86 which is superb but looking to move with the times hence the move to a new platform and handset but will definetely be keeping my trusted and best N-Series phone to date, N86!

    I won't be able to upgrade to Desire HD so i'm looking to buy it sim-free and to be honest with the fiasco that's been the Froyo update, i'm glad i'll be getting a sim-free and unbranded smartphone.

    We all know the sim-free Desire HD has been delayed till end of Oct so i thought i'd do a little update on the various websites selling the phone and what dates/prices they have.

    Amazon UK: 25th Oct -

    I know it's been reported the sim-free HTC Desire HD delay is due to Google testing, personally i think that's BS. I think the real reason there's a delay till the end of October is down to Vodafone's exclusivity with the Desire HD on contract.

    When you think about it how can the sim-free handsets not have passed Google testing when obviously the contract handsets must have? It doesn't make sense. Vodafone are apparently getting the phone on the 14th which is next Thur and the rest of us will be getting it 2 weeks later, 29th Oct onwards.

    To be honest i think that's a raw deal.

    Damn it.

    Now our eyes are on October, 25th for sim-free's, so long to wait :) I hope most people will try on contract ones and we can read and watch reviews next week especially for battery performance.

    It'll come when it comes - I waited 2.5 months longer than first anticipated for the first Nokia N900!!! That WAS painful!!!

    You really are one of the most puzzling posters I've come across. You make these statements, which, despite many requests, you refuse to elaborate on. This time, despite TheSuper's comprehensive post showing that the earliest date for the arrival of the HD being Tuesday week, you claim to be able to get it next week.

    I'm not holding my breath, but how are you able to get it earlier than everyone else?

    Two batteries' charges follow up is a tough task for me pal. Every day follow which one is full which is not, then replace and charge again and again.... That's why I am waiting to decide Iphone 4 or DHD :D
