This phone most probably'll get android 2.3 aka Gingerbread update -which is on the market next week- in 2, 3 months later.
In that time, google'll announce android 3.0 and in my opinion this phone will NOT get 3.0 update.
Knowing this fact, I'm not into DHD. I postpone buying a smartphone 2-3 months when android 3.0 is on the market.
Would the navigation,locations, maps etc., that is, gps stuff work properly for India (South India, to be more accurate)? Searched Tomtom site and I didn't find them having map for India... maybe i was mistaken but anyone know about this ?
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2010I hate HTC all their phones are prone to issues & this phone is simply massive too uglyIt is ugly for you maybe. Many people like this phone, it's all about taste...
HTC is the best smart phone maker in the world in my opinion.
UPDATE to my earlier comment "bitchin phone" 2010-11-06 10:14
You can get Google Navigation in most (all) areas using the "Brut" maps/navigation application.
Amazing they still haven't sorted out Australia
Only 2 frequency bands for 3G?????
Higher than 480 x 800 res would be nice.

Glad to hear that you guys are finally reviewing the HTC Desire HD....
Will be among the first to read it...Tnks guys
i love this phone! i have mine for 2 weeks and its really a good phone. i just buy extra battery so i dont mind if it just last for 1 day.
bitchin phone. Used to have the iPhone, this phone has so much more flexibility and I love the size of the screen. The "hot spot" application/ability is amazing. It turns your phone into a wireless router (using it right now).
Theres so much good stuff I'll just list the few bad points:
Plastic backing, and parts you remove to access the sim, sd and battery are a bit suspect/bad quality.
battery isnt amazing but it lasts the day (mind you I've just got it so I'm using it a lot)
Couln't care less about the secondary camera
Annoying that google navigation isn't supported in my area
there is strong indication that this phone will coming to Canada under TELUS in the New Years or early 2011 (its from the people when they register their Desire Z in HTC Sense site)...
why not Rogers / Fido /some other provider...?? Telus already has regular desire...
