Online, unlocked sales of the HTC Desire HD may be delayed until the end of this month, but that doesn’t appear to be affecting Vodafone UK.  The carrier has just announced it’s taking Desire HD pre-orders with delivery expected from October 14th 2010.

The Vodafone HTC Desire HD is priced from free with a new, £35 24-month agreement.  Buying online gets you 900 minutes (compared to 600 offline) unlimited texts and 750MB (500MB offline) of mobile data.  Buying online will also give you 5MB of European roaming data in your bundle.
