The price is creeping down for this handset. Cheapest I can find it at the moment (now contemplating purchasing it therefore if anyone can find a Brand New Unlocked Desire HD from a reputable dealer for less I would appreciate it if they can highlight it).
I originally thought the prices would drop significantly in the next few months due to the glut of HTC handsets arriving in April, however, the prices of the new handsets seem a bit on the high side therefore it might actually make the current Desire HD and standard Desire even more attractive.
The prices of the new HTC handsets due out are as follows:
Desire S - £400.00-£420.00 (available to Pre-Order at King Of Gadgets and Amazon respectively) - Doesn't seem a big step up from current model.
Wildfire S - £270 (available to Pre-Order at UnlockedMobiles.com)
Incredible S - Can't find a release price as yet but led to believe it will be a CarPhoneWarehouse exclusive therefore not much chance of a bargain.
Salsa - £335 (available for pre-order at UnlockedMobiles.com)
Looking at the specs of each model it would appear if the standard Desire can be bought for Circa £250 and the Desire HD for about £350 in the next few months it might be better value.
