It has been advised by the HTC staff that go around demoing the phones to shops that the demo units are running atleast 2 month old software and is not retail software.

hello Guys I have a update for this thread.

Three store islington angel - London has a demo unit however the guy is such a pr**k and won't let anyone play with it. He claims it is his personal phone when I know it isn't because I saw him in the morning but because I had to go somewhere i said to him i will come back after he said ok. When I went back he was on lucnh and I asked the staff they said I would have to wait for him to come back as he was the only one with the demo and demoing it to customers then when he came hes telling me its his personal phone.
I thought you know what let me leave it because the staff in the three store in islington angel are FOS anyway, no wonder when I walk past it is always empty and there is like 6 or so staff members sitting in there twiddling their thumbs or talking aboslute rubbish amongst themselves on top of that they are absolutely clueless about phones but that's another matter.

Also three store in Kilburn - London also has a demo unit thankfully they let you play with it. So far all the three stores that have the demo units they are not bolted down to anything, the staff members have it around their necks.

Thanks chief, OP updated.

I was in my local 3 store (AGAIN) yesterday looking for a unit to play with, the young lad who approached me as i walked in store asked if i was after anything, i said i wanted a One to play with, he told me that it was only announced a couple of days ago......i told him i already had it on pre order since last Tuesday, he sort of looked as if i was lying, then said they wouldn't have any for a while because it's not out yet, i pointed out the Xperia Z that they have had for the last few weeks wasn't out either and he just shrugged his shoulders, i then pointed at the big A frame in the store front that showed a big pre order poster with the One on it.....again he just shrugged.......kids eh?

haha yea, i swear it never ceases to amaze me how little the people who work in these retail outlets (not just phones) know about their products.

Cant agree more but at least you can cut straight through the BS though and put them on the spot

Hopefully next week we should be able to play around with the phone in at least a couple of stores without a trip to london or birmingham.
