    Is the Desire HD going to replace the regular Desire when it comes out, or will the normal Desire still be on sale (and possibly for a cheaper price)?
    No, not really. It will be exactly like the Hero and the Legend.

    The HD I believe has an ally case, just like the Legend. So it's better aesthetically and has slightly better specs, but at a higher price. It's all about the damned Emerald if it ever comes out in this country....

    I thought this with mine, but have installed different radios - some act better than others tbh, with .20 being the best so far (look it up on XDA).

    It's also sometimes wise to create another APN using the same credentials - weird I know, but sometimes works.

    What ROM are you using?


    To be honest, I wouldn't get the HD. I know it's easy to always wait for the next best thing, but the HD is not a significant step up from the Desire, unlike when the gap between the Hero and Desire.

    I'd be waiting for the Emerald with dual core capacity with Snapdragon. Now that's truly a next generation smartphone, rumoured to be out in q4 sometime around November/December.
    Yeah my contract runs out in January but it'd been hard enough waiting so far :dontknow:. I would really like the dual SD's with 1200x700 res :coma:

    Proof of concept I guess. If this does originate from Russia then whoever is backing this experiment may want to see some sort of test first

    Solid, stable and at 690Mhz, blindingly fast. Must bear in mind that there is no Sense UI at all (Launcher Pro is the default home on Cronos Froyo) and native JIT support, so it's no surprise.

    All hardware seems fine, camera apps open much, much quicker.

    I have a month until mine is out of warranty and I can flash it
