HTC Desire HD UK release date officially announced

October 14th date given to Desire HD UK launch

Desire HD to hit UK shelves next week

The upcoming HTC Desire HD handset has been given its official UK launch date as mobile network provider Vodafone makes the device available for pre-order ahead of an October 14th release, less than one month since its initial unveiling.

Available for free on a two year, £35 per month contract consumers eager to get their mitts on the latest HTC device will snag themselves 900 minutes, unlimited text messages and 750MB of monthly inclusive data when pre-ordered online.

Those users looking to do things the more traditional, highstreet way will be shorted with just 600 minutes and 500MB of inclusive data per month for the same contract length and pricing.

Unveiled at the Taiwanese company’s London-based conference last month the HTC Desire HD will feature a 1GHz processor and 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities alongside a 4.3-inch LCD display having dropped the production hampered AMOLED screen seen on the original HTC Desire device.
