HTC Touch HD - Only on Orange?
We received a mail today from one of our long time readers David Davis advising us that the HTC Touch HD will be available only on the Orange Network. As yet I don't have the source of this leak but you can be 100% certain that I will be working through my contacts over at HTC to see what I can find out.

If this pans out to be the case then I'm sure Orange will consider themselves very lucky indeed considering that the past 2 BIG handsets to be snapped up by a single operator have sold extremely well to date (G1 & iPhone).
If you have news leaks just like that or you would just like to tell us something then why not mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we will make sure to give you credit when posting on the blog.
EDIT: seems that the info. we've been given might be duff! We did contact HTC this morning but they refused to comment on the HTC Touch HD, simple saying that it would be available sim-free but had no information about operator deals. We're trying to get to the bottom of this now!
EDIT 2: Sources at Orange are no suggesting that the Touch HD will be exclusive to Orange for three months. You should still be able to purchase the Touch HD sim-free from your favourite HCT retailer but the only operator to carry it initially will be Orange followed by the other networks three months later.
EDIT 3: For those of you that doubted it - you might want to have a look at this leaked Orange Press release!
