I think this is best pre order deal on the HTC desire out there at the moment. It works out as £540 across the whole 18 month period with 300 mins, unlimited texts and unlimited mobile web.

Deal is with T-Mobile and is as follows:

£25 Unlimited Text + Internet Boosters on T Mobile
18 month contract, 300 Minutes, Unlimited Text + Unlimited mobile web
£30.00 per month Line rental, 3 months Free insurance
Free handset.

Works out at £540 over 18 months for same service as others posted over 24 months, no upfront cost for the handset and you're out of contract 6 months earlier.

This handset is supposed to be the same as the Nexus one but doesn't look like it's available until 1 April 2010.
As it's T-Mobile, you should also be able to port your number.

Poss £30 from TCB as well.

HTC Desire is the superphone you have been waiting for and the HTC un-branded version of the Google Nexus One plus a couple of extra camera features thrown-in. The 3.7-inch AMOLED display presents you with an unmatched viewing experience and the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor delivers superfast web browsing and amazing multimedia. All of this power is wrapped up with the most intuitive user experience - HTC Sense.

HTC Desire delivers intense brilliance, sharp contrast, and true colors on the expansive 3.7-inch AMOLED display. The 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor makes the phone incredibly responsive as you multitask from app to app without skipping a beat, while the instinctive HTC Sense experience lets you wield the power of the HTC Desire with the greatest of ease.

Overall cost same as this deal hotukdeals.com/ite…mon

I'm going to get one, but will wait for other network pricing first.

I know but it's 6 month shorter contract! Pay the same over a shorter period and get the same? How is that cold?

I haven't voted either way. What i said was "same overall cost". So, for the same money you are missing 6 months x 300 minutes/ texts and 6 x "free" internet.

Just looked at both these deals and reckon it'll be cheaper through T-mobile direct (when the Desire arrives on their site). T-mobile offer "unlimited internet" for free on Android handsets whereas MobilePhonesDirect are requiring a £5 per month booster!

Over 18/24 months that adds up to a fair chunk of change (£90/£120).

Correction: Actually at MPD it's even worse than that! T-mobile direct offer free Internet AND one free booster compared to them.

Thus, for example:
100 mins, unlimited texts, unlimited Internet; 24 months = £10 at T-mobile, £20 at MPD!
300 mins, unlimited texts, unlimited Internet; 24 months = £15 at T-mobile, £25 at MPD!

Sure, we don't know the handset costs yet for T-mobile direct; but given the much higher plan costs at MPD I think it wise to wait it out!

Do you really want a 2 year mobile contract - whether or not there's 6 months free usage? If you're looking at this handset, you like tech and fairly cutting edge at that - 2 years later, this is going to be very old! You'll hate yourself for that....

Good deal and the fact that u can upgrade in 16 months time for a new phone...i think people should encourage 12 and 18 months contracts and totally ban the 24 months contract ..

I wish.. unfortunately too many people get 24 months so they'll keep coming.

This phone should be great, will almost certainly get it!

Agreed and I too wouldn't touch a 24 month contract. I'm only just just considering an 18 month so there's no way I'd have a 24.

I've currently got a HTC Magic (had it 8 months) and already think it's out of date - couldn't imagine the same handset for 2 years!
