More HTC HD2 rumours

Ok, so many of you are emailing me with questions about the HTC HD2 and telling me what you’ve heard about its upcoming launch I thought I would condense the latest that we’ve heard in to one post.


Let’s start with what we are hearing from the retailers. Both Clove Technology and Devicewire advise us that they have been told that the HD2 will start shipping on the 11th November. This will probably mean that they will have stock either on the 10th or 11th November for shipping to customers on the 11th November. These devices will of course be the SIM-free unlocked versions of the HD2 and will cost in the region of £500 at launch. See Below.


On to the networks then. Several emails from T-Mobile customers say that they’ve been told by various account managers that the HTC HD2 is will be in stock from the 5th November and will commence shipping on that date. I suspect that stock will be limited initially.

There are also various rumours about the HD2 availability on O2. The O2 Forums are full of discussion about the imminent launch. We’ve been told that we could see the device start shipping as early as the end of October to the first few days of November.

Personally, reading between all of the rumours, I suspect that the SIM-free and the network locked versions will be launched on the same day and that HTC will control when they can officially go on sale and I think that will be the 2nd week in November.


Now if you are particularly impatient (like me!) or just want to make sure that you will receive your new HTC HD2 on the day it’s launched then you can pre-order it from one of the companies below.


Clove Technology – HTC HD2 handset only price £504.85 inc VAT + delivery.

Super E Trader – HTC HD2 handset only price £499.99 inc VAT + delivery or £529.99 for a bundle with Case, Screen Protectors and 8GB Memory card. – HTC HD2 handset only price £499.99 inc VAT and free delivery.

eXpansys – HTC HD2 handset only price £499.99 inc VAT + delivery with £30 of eXpansys discount vouchers.


I suspect that there will be limited numbers of the HTC HD2 available initially so if you really want it on launch day I strongly suggest that you pre-order!
