The hotly awaited HTC Desire HD has been confirmed a release date in the UK on October 22nd for those looking to pick it up from Vodafone.
The smartphone was originally slated for release tomorrow, but reports emerged earlier this week that the kit, along with the Desire Z, may have been delayed until next month for failing to comply with Google’s “type approval” tests.
It now appears that customers will be able to get their hands on the Desire HD as early as next week, presumably having received the green signal from Google.
Vodafone will be offering the handset for free with a two-year contract starting at £35 per month, which comes with a monthly allowance of 900 cross-network minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of data if you pre-order online. Purchasing in-stores will slash that offer to just 600 minutes and 500MB of data.
Key features of the Desire HD include a capacious 4.3-inch touchscreen, an eight-megapixel snapper with high-definition video recording and the latest version of Android, AKA Froyo, which brings Flash player support, plus USB tethering and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality.
