htc delay
Last Updated: August 13th, 2011

Bad news for our European friends: word from retailers is that the releases of the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z have been delayed until the end of the month. Why? The phones seem to be caught up in Google's testing process:

The relevant bit is in the first paragraph:

Apparently, both units have failed last minute Google TA (Type Approval) testing which is exactly what was said about the original Desire days before release!

Users from all over Europe (and even an Israeli) on XDA-Devs have confirmed the delay, with the revised release dates varying based on location. In every case, though, the dates are in the latter part of the month. Bummer - but at least it's only a few more weeks.

    Oh well I wonder if this will give HTC more time to build a stockpile as I want a SIM free one in the near future.

      Yea, I was thinking the same thing. At least there is a silver lining ;)
