Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation announced last month the near launch of two new mobile phones running under Google's Android operating system, namely the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z, but it seems that it had to delay the two mobile phones for a few weeks.
Initially, the two handsets were expected to land on shelves sometime in mid-October, but it seems that they might not make it on the market until the end of the month.
This applies to the European market, apparently, since the two mobile phones
won't arrive in Asian countries until November, as HTC announced officially on Friday.
Moreover, rumor has it that the two Android devices have failed Google's testing process, and that it might take longer than expected for them to receive green light.
Here's what Superetrader, a UK retailer, states on the matter: “Apparently, both units have failed last minute Google TA (Type Approval) testing which is exactly what was said about the original Desire
days before release.”
According to the latest news
around the Internet, many users on the old continent already reported delays with the shipping of these tow smartphones, at least this is what forum posts
over at XDA Developers show.
Of course, nothing was confirmed officially for the time being, and we'll leave this only in the rumor side until things are clarified, though there are great chances that the rumors would prove real in the end.
The HTC Desire HD and Desire Z
were unveiled officially last month, when the mobile phone maker announced their upcoming availability via various carriers around the globe.
UK wireless services providers already unveiled plans to have the two smartphones on their airwaves in mid-October, but it remains to be seen whether they manage to keep their promise or not.
Both new phones
come with a wide range of appealing features, including large touchscreen displays, fast processors, support for 3G connectivity, or HD video recording capabilities.
Moreover, they were packed with HTC's new Sense solution, paired with the recently launched HTCSense.com portal.
