Starting to wonder if they will actually release the hx4700 upgrade - it's available for download via the US site for a month or so but the UK english CD edition keeps slipping back ;)

(from previous experience it's awkward to install different language upgrades but not impossible :P )

- it should've been available the 17th but now says stock due 1st may - how long does it take to press some CD's eh? If record companies can get 40,000 copies of a reality TV or charity single in the shops in 4 days from recording.....pressing 10,000 or so upgrade cd's shouldn't take too long surely?...

At least they seem to be doing something about the upgrade, unlike Dell who just can't be bothered with the upgrade for the X50 series...

I'd gladly buy it if they will ever get it in stock. In their infinite wisdom we in the UK cannot use the official download version. It's the sort of thing that makes you google for a 'special' version. :)

Kind of strange don't you think? Do you think the delay is of HPs making or Microsofts?

Hp's defo. The rom *is* out, it ( international english) is available to download via hp.com after purchase if you are US based, so I think they just haven't made any CD's yet....

cheaper too from the US. Now where's that ip annonymizer? :)

The UK timeframe's just got worse but at least now they let you register to find out when it's ready...

Yay! 4 days after adding myself to the waiting list I got an email saying limited stock was available.
So it's on it's way. Still out of stock on the main site mind...

Arrived this morning on a pre-9am special delivery.

Not bad for ordering 11pm wed night.

Includes a new full paper manual (?) as well as a Windows Mobile 5 COA product sticker to fit to the device. Might just go for that new casing before sticking it on as it's looking a bit tatty...

Installing now, standard HTC PPC upgrade package, only difference is HP logo and percentage complete is to .1%
