HTC Desire HD now available from Three’s online store

When the Desire HD was first announced by HTC and Vodafone just a few days ago, they did mention it was coming to Three ‘soon’. Well, ‘soon’ is ‘now, as the Desire HD is up on Three’s online store available to all. Pricing starts from $29/mo (+$15/mo) all the way to $119/mo on their unlimited caps. If you’re hoping to get the Desire HD for $0 upfront, you’ll be looking at the $59 cap which is almost the same as Vodafone’s, and if you order online you get $50 bonus credit. It appears to be for new customers only for online sales, however heading into your local Three store and having a chat could get you somewhere. Full listing of Three’s plans, after the break.

Quick note, I’ll be doing a quick review of the Desire HD sometime in the next two weeks and Chris will be reviewing the Desire Z soon as well.

    I actually just walked in and picked one up from the store as well. So far so good except i cant seem to get the HTC sense website to recognise my phone.

    Looking forward to the review and particularly Chris’ thoughts on the Desire Z.

      I also can’t wait for the Desire Z review, it’s a phone I was honestly looking at getting. But held off due to no NextG support. Maybe next year ;)

        Some of the stores here in London are starting to stock them and there was one in my local area which I was able to physically pick up and look at. As it wasn’t powered up, I couldn’t switch it on so all I can say it’s a little heavier than other phones. So if you like wearing low slung shorts or jeans, it might not be the phone for you.

        The interesting thing is that I held it by the screen part with the qwerty keypad out and it didn’t drop down like it did in the videos. It stayed closed and the hinges didn’t sag at all. When opening and closing the keypad (I couldn’t quite close it because of the way they had it secure to the display), the hinges felt sturdy and it didn’t display the problem that has been posted online. It seems that some Desire Z might have hinges issues and others won’t. So I guess we might see some inconsistency in the quality of the hinges.

    Mate, Never buy a phone from Three, They never approve updates released by the manufacturer. I have an Xperia X10 and i’ve never got even the small firmware update on my phone. Go for Vodafone instead.
