If O2â€™s official forums is any indication, anticipation for the HTC HD2 is at a fever pitch. Despite the launch of the Palm Pre, supposedly most anticipated than the iPhone, its the HTC HD2 thread which is getting the most attention.
The device, which appears in the October catalogue, was expected to arrive initially on the 12th, then yesterday on the 19th, and is currently seeing its rumoured launch date disappearing into November.
As the device has become more delayed the thread has grown correspondingly in number of views and posts, and is currently filled with despondent people planning to jump ship to the first carrier who manages to launch it. Tempers have been further inflamed by conflicting reports from customer service representatives who can not ever seem to agree when the device will eventually arrive.
The thread, which started on the 24th September is currently 26 days old and 473 posts strong, and has had over 42,145 views, and has grown by more than 15 pages in the last 24 hours.
A similar thread for the Sony Ericsson Satio, similarly delayed, has seen only 30,000 views in 32 days. The Palm Pre on the other hand is hardly presented at all.
Where this will end is certainly not before the release of the device, which unfortunately is currently rumoured to be in the second week of November, with the device not even being shipped from HTC to O2 warehouses yet.
