Black HTC Desire comes to Orange UK, sells out

This has been a trend for HTC as of late. They have sold out of everything from Vodafone’s Nexus One, the HD2 and a few times with the desire. What’s going on with HTC, maybe they didn’t think their phones would be this popular? Orange has recently made the black HTC desire and it sold out almost as soon as it was available.

Black HTC Desire due by end of next week say Orange

Holding out for the black version of the HTC Desire?  Initially promised for the end of April by Orange UK, a combination of volcanic ash and firmware issues have seen the Android 2.1 smartphone delayed.  Now, Android Community tipster Chris has let us know that the black Desire is expected to arrive early next week. That's come straight from Orange UK customer services, who told Chris that the limited edition Desire was expected to arrive in their warehouses sometime in the first week of May.  Actual shipments out to customers should take place from "middle to late next week". Orange's product page is here - it still says simply "coming soon - and the specifications for the handset are the same as the regular model we reviewed back in March.  The phone will be priced from free on new contracts.

Unlocked HTC Desire delayed again confirms retailer

Bad news if you're waiting for an unlocked, SIM-free HTC Desire in the UK.  Despite the handset arriving on T-Mobile earlier this month, the unlocked version is apparently further delayed.  According to retailer Clove, deliveries to retailers of the unlocked Desire have been postponed (again) until next week. HTC apparently expect to begin releasing stock on April 13th - just under a week from now - but there's no guarantee when a) that stock will arrive with retailers and b) when retailers themselves will begin shipping out the Android 2.1 smartphone.  Clove point out that this isn't a problem limited to themselves, and that it will affect all online retailers of the unlocked Desire; if a store is telling you they can get the Desire earlier, it's time to ask some questions. As for whether the handset is worth it, check out our full HTC Desire review over at SlashGear for all the details. HTC Desire hands-on: [vms e97bacb63e52c54f0ada]
