Update on HTC Desire Release on Orange


We just reported that US Cellular may be getting the HTC Desire, but for some in the UK an extended wait continues as several carriers have all been dealing with an overwhelming demand and a limited supply of the Android phone. According to Tracy and Matt, the Desire should be going live on the Orange website by the weekend or early next week.


While certain Orange subscribers were able to get their hands on part of this limited stock, Orange released a statement assuring that they are working their hardest to get the Desire out to everyone who wants one:

“Due to an unprecedented high demand for the HTC Desire on Orange, we are experiencing some delays in delivering the handset across all our channels. We are currently working to fix this as a matter of priority and expect the Desire to be available across all channels shortly. Orange would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience this has caused.”
