UK shelf date for HTC Desire HD pushed back

It was initially confirmed for October 14th, but now the HTC Desire HD has had its UK launch pushed back to 22nd October.

Why you ask? Well, according to Crave, the Desire HD failed a last minute Google Approval test. Nothing significant judging by the slight delay, but significant enough for an eight-day delay to its UK availability.

Should be worth the wait though, with the Desire HD likely to be the big Android seller in the run-up to Christmas - and for good reason. It's got Android 2.2 as you would expect, along with a 4.3-inch WVGA touch-screen with multi-touch, a HD-friendly 8-megapixel camera with image effects built-in, a 1Ghz processor with 768MB RAM, 1.5GB of storage, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity plus the new Sense UI and sense.com, the latter for your cloud-based syncing. That's already gone live, waiting for you and your new phone.

Vodafone and T-Mobile will both have it on that launch date, but you can pre-order from both networks now.
