If you’re interested in ordering the phone you can do so by placing a pre-order at either or Amazon UK. Both online retailers are selling the device for £469.99 that’s 176 KWD without Amazon & Aramex shipment. Yes the phone is Sim unlocked so you can relax. You don’t need to suffer hack n slashing the device to unlock it like the iPhone.  The only difference between the two retailers is each one has its own add  discount on the Micro SD card when purchasing the device.

Now I have a question to all the Android users that’s out there. How does one know what is the current graphic processor of the Desire HD and at what generation level is it comparable to the iPhone generation? I’ve read that when comparing graphic/speed of an Android OS carrying a Snap Dragon chip; a table system was created called Benchmark used to tell what generation of stages the Snap Dragon chip set series is currently at and how it is comparable to the iPhone generation graphic and speed. Can somebody please explain to me in simple terms (not Geeky detailed) how the graphics and processor is going to be on the new Desire HD? I want to know if the benchmark is set to be similar or better than the iPhone 4.

Also, how long will the battery last and how does the video/photo quality looks like in normal and low light.
