The HTC Desire HD has been a topic of interest to consumers in the UK, we already knew which carriers were getting the new handset, but we did not have a specific release date. However, we can now tell you that the official release date is October 14th.
This date is for Vodafone UK, and you can now get all the pricing details from this pre-order page. The handset will come with Android 2.2 out of the box, so will have all the latest OS features.
The price for the HTC Desire HD on Vodafone starts from free, but this will require you to sign-up to a 2-year contract. Is it me or are all handsets now following the iPhone long-contract route?
We have yet to get conformation from the other UK carriers, but we know that Orange and T-mobile should announce theirs at the same time, as they have now completed their merger.
