You may of seen our post a couple of weeks ago where we informed you that HTC released Windows Mobile 6.5 rom updates for the Touch Pro2 and Snap.

The Europe update can be accessed by clicking here. Like all rom updates please ensure you back up all data on the device as it will all be erased. If you have not tried Microsoft’s MyPhone this may be a good time to try. I use it and its works a treat!

HTC HD2 delayed?

Ok this one is very much an unconfirmed rumour but today I had an email from two different sources saying that they’ve been told that the HTC Touch HD2 is subject to some delays and will not launch on the 11th of November as expected.

Now, while it is possible that the HD2 has been delayed, other HTC handsets have been subject to launch delays in the past, I must emphasise that we have not had any official confirmation about the delay, in much the same way that there is no official launch date for the HD2 as yet.

If you have any news about the HTC HD2 that you would like to share with us then please do get in touch using either our contact page above or else via the forum.

Don’t worry, as soon as we have any HD2 news we’ll be sure to share it with you and likewise, as soon as we get our hands on the HD2 we’ll have an unboxing video and review for you.


EDIT: News just in from Devicewire. The due date for the HTC HD2 has not changed as far as they are aware, it should still be the 11th November. However, stock will be ridiculously low initially so you are urged to pre-order.

Additional stock will not arrive until 2 weeks after the original shipment and the the car kit wont be available till January 2010!

In terms of the positives, there is a 2GB memory card and a pouch case included with the handset.

WebOS 1.3 to be released worldwide by November 15th?


So we found out today that the Pixi’s official launch date is going to be November 15th at the fairly low price of $99.99. Well this news can only mean one thing. WebOS 1.3 is around the corner! We saw in all the press releases that the Palm Pixi already has included with it a Facebook app which was developed by Palm themselves and Yahoo integration into Synergy allowing for you to add your Yahoo friends to chat with and contacts into your contacts app. Well the Pre doesn’t have this yet. When Engadget’s, Joshua Topolsky was given the demo of the Pixi, he asked if these new apps and Yahoo integration would be included on the Pre as well and the gentleman said yes the Pre will not be left out. We also heard a rumor from a website that reviewed the German version of the Pre that WebOS version parady would happen sometime in mid November. So this means an update is definitely coming. Whether there will be any other features added is uncertain at this point but, if you look at the length of time between each .1 update we have received in the past we are actually overdue for 1.3. So keep your eyes peeled for WebOS 1.3 news in the coming weeks because we are pretty confident it is on the way.

HTC HD2 Now very almost nearly on o2 website


Gah! Come on o2, this is like.. torture or something. The HTC HD2. We all know how good it is. Since the announcement we’ve been hunched over our laptops, furiously watching videos and drooling at the early reviews.
Now it’s taken another (tiny) step closer, with the HTC HD2 available to select in the o2 accessories section. Sure, the phone itself still isn’t on the site (some Palm Pre thing is getting in the way), but it’s a little glimmer of hope for those of us waiting to get a hold of the real thing.
