Its the hardware issue in some cases.
Maybe your eclair phone can't support android 3.0 depending on the hardware.
For example samsung & google still working on Galaxy S froyo update.
its just NOT that simple even if its 2.1 to 2.2 upgrade.
Then please imagine 2.x to 3.x.
its favourable to wait until december to see if htc android 3.0 phones are coooming. those phones most probably can be upgradable to 3.x series as well, so we can use that phone at least 1 year without beeing out of date :)
Just had a play on this phone.
Is the daddy. Well built. Touch screen extremely responsive even more so than the desire.
768mb ram and you notice it.
There's news out not long ago that it'll be priced at $59/mth, promo price on Vodafone Australia but not release date yet

Thanx alot again!
0v0, 26 Oct 2010Maybe for you it sucks, but forme is okcos i dont care about 360x xxxxbesides, i like QWERTY. It is better to wait until Nokia come with a MeeGo-phone with full slide-out-qwerty, early next year. Symbian is only a waste of money and will disappoint users.

I don't think an Android compatible phone will ever be un-upgrade-able to whatever version of Android may appear in the nearby future !
That's not what Google has in store for its fans !
[deleted post]Which OS is your choice. I`ll go for Android for many reasons. DHD will be my choice. WM7 is clamied to highly improved, I`ve no experience, so can`t comment.

Don`t like the DHD, why do you even bother come here????I`ve got the Omnia 2 and I think it stinks, but I`m not going to say this at Samsung forum. Grow up mate!
This 'cell' gives a new meaning to the term 'pancake sized phone'. I won't hold something like this next to my face even if I can get it for free ! Then I might just as well make a phone call from my 7in Samsung cell phone tablet :-)
Checked out HTC DHD today for form and surprisingly, it looked and felt smaller to hold than the HD2. Need an alternative to my IP4 which I like but enjoy the flexibility of android and tend to flip between IP4 and my X10 at the moment. I believe it is as good as the Desire and more, especially as a multimedia device and watching movies.
In short, to all the haters, if you don't like it, don't buy it.....SIMPLES! Don't hate on here, no one is interested.
I will never buy a HTC phone again. HTC Desire is unable to keep a stable 3G-connection, and according to the review at TechRadar http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/htc-desire-hd-717295/review?artc_pg=9 they still have not fixed this fatal problem on Desire HD and it will most likely be the same fatal problem on Desire Z. HTC suck!
"We had a few issues with data connection though - on some occasions the phone would look like it has full signal but then you'd realise that those bars wouldn't change and you can't get any data - it was actually frozen, and we have no idea why."
0v0, 25 Oct 2010Naaaaaah, i will go for Nokia E7. The symbian^3 will have great future as stated by the CTO 7 ... more360x640 on a 4 inches screen, E7 totally sucks, and Symbian4... is still only Symbian and will always be an outdated OS!
