The much coveted HTC Desire HD finally launched a couple of weeks ago, and it seems that the rush to grab one has been pretty full on, with Vodafone telling customers that they’re already working with limited stock.
Personally, I’m not quite decided between the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z yet – I’m quite attached to the idea of a physical QWERTY keyboard – so you can expect a blog-post comparing the two quite soon as I try to sort through my thoughts!
We’re currently expecting to offer the SIM free HTC Desire HD from the beginning of November, priced at £459.96, and pre-orders can be placed now on the website.
We’ve also been busy sourcing tons of HTC Desire HD cases and accessories ready for the SIM free lauch, and these have been coming into stock in dribs and drabs. But it won’t be long to wait now until all the accessories (not to mention the handset itself) arrive in stock, and we’re expecting them to fly off the shelves, so it might be an idea to pre-order pretty sharpish if you want to get your hands on them.
Here’s our top three choices of case for the Desire HD:
1. Flexishield Skin for the HTC Desire HD
Our best value case, the Flexishield is similar to a crystal case but with the durability and flexibility of silicone. That keeps the phone protected from knocks and bumps, without adding too much bulk to the handset – something that you certainly don’t need, as the Desire HD is so large already.
2. Case-Mate Barely There Case for HTC Desire HD – Silver
The Case-Mate range is available in a variety of sedate but stylish covers, giving your phone more personality whilst keeping it looking tasteful. The case wraps tightly around the phone, emphasising rather than hiding its curves, and protects whilst also allowing access to all the ports and buttons that you need.
3. Piel Frama Case for HTC Desire HD
For something a little more costly but high-quality and professional-looking, the Piel Frama is an HTC Desire HD case that is designed to impress. Each case is made from finest hand-crafted leather, which each case taking a total of 25 days to manufacture from start to finish. The company also take a lot of care to work within the guidelines for ecological leather manufacturing.
