S'ok price but they'll be dropping like a lead balloon with the new HTC's announced the other week.

Flood of Dual cores hitting the consumer as well.

Won't be long before the dual core batch start appearing and the prices really nose dive.

I posted this deal a few days ago (linked with a cheaper option from Handtec) and is still minus degrees while this one is closing in on being 'hot' - strange.

dabluone, its not like 1ghz processors are being upgraded to 1.2ghz, its 1ghz being upgraded to dual core and 1.2ghz or 1.5ghz, a massive leap in performance, 1080p recording being added to phones too and other cool things. Right now is a bad time to buy.

No matter what new phones may or may not be coming out, this is a great price for a great phone. If we all waited forever for new models we'd never buy anything! Hot, thanks OP.

That may be true but I read an interesting article which stated hardware is moving much faster than the software, with few apps really being able to take advantage of the new line up, and not to expect anything significant perhaps till the end of the year. Makes sense seeing as the Tegra2 has been out for ages on my tablet yet nothing much to make any use of it. Still better to wait a month or so I recon, if only for the inevitable price drop with the release of the new handsets.

I've got one of these, it's an amazing phone. So glad I got one of these instead of the iPhone

Im a huge tech fan and help stimulate the economy regularly with my purchase but Im still using my iphone 3g and it does everything I need even though its been superseded 2 times already (nearly 3). All tech gets faster, shinier etc but a good phone is a good phone and plus this is a good price. The next gen of phones are bloody expensive especially as the manufactures need to pull back some profit on all there development costs etc. You seen the price of the Playstation phone - damn!

Why not just wait a few months and put £100 or so more and get one of the new HTC's coming out?
#22
I traded in my iphone for this. I got fed up with Apple control the way i used my phone. The Desire HD has so many features which are available without having to jailbreak the phone.

Heat added.

this is a great phone at an almost great price ( still pricey but getting there ) if anyone is thinking about a new phone now then i cant recommend this highly enough, just goto p4u or cpw to test one and youll agree
as for the 'wait for something better brigade' theres never a good time to buy as theres ALWAYS something new just around the corner, i say buy it when you need it and if nows the time then buy it, if not then wait and see whats what when you do need one

@ stuart9787, i gave you some heat as your felling a little left out and yours was a good spot too ;)

For those of you screaming about dual-core, I'd personally much rather 50% more battery than 50% more speed given how smooth most phones are nowadays. Also the 1 GHz processor in the latest batch of HTC phones is NOT the same as the one in the original Desire, but a faster more efficient version. I think the HTC Incredible S looks more interesting given it's far superior battery life and almost guaranteed upgrade path to Gingerbread and beyond.

If the dual core phones coincided with the release of Android 3.0 then I could understand this point of view, as said upgrade will likely take advantage of the faster CPU's. But they are absolutely wasted on the current versions of the OS as they run perfectly quick and smooth already, you will see no increase in performance over the current crop of phones running on the various 1 GHz CPU's. As I say, this should improve with 3.0, but there are no confirmations yet when it will be released on any mobiles. It was thought that the Galaxy S ll may come with it installed, but that comes with 2.3. Things have to move on of course, and that's a good thing, but the manufacturers are relying on people like yourself to buy the new tech just so you can say 'ooh look, my CPU has a higher clock speed than yours', or something along them lines. It's all about one upmanship. It's the same as mentioning the 1080p video recording. It means nothing. Getting pulled into that is the same as these people that think that a phone that can capture an 8mp image automatically has better image quality than one that shoots at 5mp. You are severely limited by the low quality lenses that all phones have, (compared to a real camcorder or camera) and poor image processing. It doesn't matter if your phone can shoot in 2160p, the images will still look cack because of the rubbish optics it shoots through. My Desire HD shoots in 720p, but put video shot on it onto disc and watch it in comparison to my 5 year old Sony camcorder, that shoots in standard def, and it comes nowhere near.

3.0 is optimized for tablets, 2.4 will be the new rom HTC will be releasing with new range of phones.

Yes, but the point remains valid, there will be no real terms use of the increase in hardware for a good 6 months to a year while all the developers still try to make use of it.

There are developers still working on HTC Blueangel from early 2000`s DHD is one of those devices that will last and used for many years just like the Blueangel, I still use my blueangel on regular bases for various tasks :)

Yes, honeycomb is optimized for tablets, and this strengthens my point. The only announced changes in 2.4 up to now, and its likely to stay this way, is that it includes support for software written to use dual core on version 3.0 to run on single core CPU's. So where is the benefit from dual core apart from the supposed battery efficiency? (I'll come back to that). Android 3.0 may still be used by the mobile manufacturers at some point, but again, no confirmations, it's a big rumour mill as usual.
Regarding your sweeping comment about the battery life, this is not strictly true. Battery life will only improve if the OS and any other software you use are programmed to drop a second core when not required. So you are at the mercy of the software writers. Even if 2.X is efficient in this way, (which I doubt) there is a good chance most of these small applications people use will not be programmed in such a way, and will use both cores even when not needed. So in this case, battery life will most likely decrease.
