Damn just saw the official specs and no support for US AT&T/Rogers Canada bands. Sucks!

well to be fair this is Europe's first 4.3" android device. I've been waiting a year for it too. You guys in the west have two 4.3" android devices.

From zdnet:

"Both of the new HTC handhelds are expected to start shipping to European and Asian markets in October, but North American fans are going to have to (unfortunately) wait until some unknown point “later this year.” On the bright side, there are only a few more months left of 2010, so the wait can’t be that long, right?"

I really hope so. This is the phone I want, if it can get the TMOUSA HSPA+ speeds. I would sell my nexus one in a heartbeat.

Yeah but not on AT&T. All we have is the Samsung Captivate and an outdated Dell Streak running 1.6 that you can only order through Dell. I am an HTC fan and if this could hop the pond to AT&T, I would be ecstatic.

Did they change it because it now reads:

"The new HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z will be broadly available through mobile operators and retailers across major European and Asian markets from October 2010 with the HTC Desire Z shipping in North America later this year."

Just the Z, no HD?

Well if you look at HTC's site for the specs on the Desire they list all Asian/Europe bands, but one can purchase the the Rogers HTC Desire and it will work on the AT&T network.

I am hoping the same happens with the Desire HD. Hope Rogers picks it up so AT&T customers can purchase that one.

Additionally I hope they aren't using ClearPad 2000 on it.
