    There is a rumour going around that it has been delayed until end of the month, which is due to both handsets (Desire HD and Desire Z) failing through Android testing

    Source

    Personally, I don't believe it...HTC has a good standing relationship with Google (they were the first to bring an android phone to the market and they developed the Nexus One) so I think its more of a stock issue.

    CPW maybe referring to the White Desire..Only just come out and my local stores (Barnsley, Wakefield and Meadowhall shopping mall) don't have any in.

    Was going to cost me

    Play.com still have it at Oct 19th but I'm sure they'll delay it further so Vodafail can have exclusivity :(

    Amazing, they really like making people suffer. On HTC's official launch, Ceo was saying "In October", so November is never unacceptable and it will damage their reputation on reliability and this is something Asian culture does never want.

    I'm not loyal full stop..I go where the deals are :)

    Nothing we can really do about it, Just wait and see. MPD say customers who placed an order in already should get it by the end of the month..Whether we do, Is another thing.

    Take into consideration we are only 9 days into October..plenty of time yet to stick to the promise.

    I'm not sticking up for HTC or anything here, just trying to be the logical one over everything at the minute.

    Wiki Release Timetable states Q4 this year.

    LG has recently delayed there tablets and they wanted to run gingerbread on it so maybe its out slightly later than planned?

    Looks like Andy Rubin kept it low key as well

    i am on tmobile uk and have the hero/g2 with 5 month contract left.i rang tmobile up to get a date on the dhd and pre-order as my wife is having my contract hero and i am having the dhd.they wouldn't let me pre-order and have no date for it,i said on your website coming soon page it says October she said this is a guideline and they cannot guarantee october.i then rang vodafone and they are taking pre-orders and the women said its release date is 14th of october.i think vodafone are just saying this so i pre-order with them.DO YOU THINK IN THE NEXT 5 MONTHS DHD IS THE PHONE TO GET,I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE THE LOOK OF IT BUT IF IT KEEPS GETTING DELAYED DONT NO WHEATHER JUST TO WAIT TILL MY CONTRACT IS UP AND GET A PHONE THEN WITH 3.0 STRAIGHT ON IT.

    Why the need for caps?

    To my understanding, you won't be able to upgrade when you have 5 months left on your contract.

    I believe unless its changed Orange is 3 months before contract ends and T-mobile is 1.

    Technology develops, nothing stands still..It maybe top dog for a matter of months before something else topples it..It's how technology works.

    Well apologies for my oversight, but since you ripped into me, its only fair I rip you into shreds next..Don't say I didn't warn you.

    We all can't be perfect eh?

    Right so what part of COMING SOON don't you understand?..I mean really, what do you expect T-Mobile to do?. Once they have a date, they will inform potential and existing customers the same. It's called setting customer expectation. No committed date, customer expected date.

    Err..No

    Vodafone are taking pre-orders because THEY ARE RELEASING IT ON THAT DATE

    Source

    Another source

    So really this is total FAIL from your side.

    Is this comment for real?..I mean really?.

    Does technology stand still?..Of course it doesn't..
    Do members on here predict the future? I'm sure as hell would like to, but sadly we can't play God.
    Do we know if another competitor will bring out another phone and it will eventually beat the Desire HD: Yes, because that's how technology works. It progresses!.

    I mean, if this is a face palm moment, its here!.

    Do you even know when Android 3.0 comes out?..Nobody does..Its been rumoured for Q4..that may even get pushed back.

    HTC releases android updates for the handset, ok, sometimes they come out real delayed, but they come out.



    Oh, and your welcome btw :cool:

    I just didn't like the style of the users reply.

    It's ok saying your not intelligent over the Internet, but saying it to someone's face is another thing entirely.

    And I tried to be polite but then you got the

    Which was uncalled for, that gives me the green light to fire bullets back..which now reading back does seem quite amusing to the neutral xD

    If you see a post you find offensive, don't 'rip into' other members. The whole thing will escalate and it won't end well for anybody involved.

    Please just report it ([​IMG]), ignore it and carry on with the discussion at hand.

    Vodafone's release date has been pushed back and is now 22nd October for anyone who's getting the handset on contract. Allegedly confirmed by a Vodafone staff member in one of their shops.

    I get a very strong feeling it's going to be a while before anyone gets their hands on this phone.

    This sucks so badly. I am heading back to the States in the beginning of Nov and wanted to flaunt this phone around at places like T-Mobile, Verizon & Best Buy.

    Well if it doesn't come out here in time (which usually is the case with the UK market), you could always import from Asia?

    EDIT: May even work out cheaper for you

    First time poster, just joined up. I spoke to the guy working in T-Mobile(UK) in the middle of the week. He was really excited for the HD release because he has the original desire right now. He pulled out a tariff sheet from his desk, showed me one tariff

    I have a few questions if anyone doesn't mind answering them. This will be the first time I actually have a mobile that I will use the internet with, is 1GB usage well enough?What would it take for me to go over that, vast amount of streaming youtube or other media websites? How much does a network charge you if you go over all that limit? I wouldn't mind ordering through mpd if I knew 1GB is well enough, is the site trust worthy? Thanks in advance to any questions that get answered
