Also went to my shop but no in stock so I have to wait untill new stock arrives. And will then get a white one as the grey is said to take two weeks untill they got them in stock again.

Still no more DOA than mine? In Sweden we got a bunch and the common thing untill now is that all with the same error are grey. I think we have 20 grey ones in a swedish forum hanging at boot. Got mine fixed by reflashing the RUU but will still exchange it for a white one

Yes. We are many frustrated customers in Sweden right now who's got this problem.
It seems there simply is'nt any ROM installed in the phone(?!).

Here's a video someone made of the problem:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3t6dB2VVsE

And when you press Volume up plus power button you can see 2 error messages repeating over and over again below the menu that comes up:

E:Failed to open loopdevice (no such file or directory)
and
E:Failed to mount /sdcard (no such file or directory)

Whatever that means....

So frustrating! Bah!

Damn.. I really hope they are gonna fix all these stupid issues with this phone.. It's a shame cuz it was supposed to be great, I was going to buy one pretty much because of the screen quality.. But I think I'll wait a bit

Mine is DOA :( It is connecting to network for 5 secons and then disconnecting with the PREPARING SIM CARD allways. It is unusable, the phone part does not work. My SIM is OK and the HTC on the phone said if this happens it is faulty :(
