First draft additional info coming later today!

With the review topic getting to over 40 pages people are missing stuff. Here is a distillation of most of what has been covered. The information here is a collection of what is stated here and on other forums across the Interweb. As the phone has not been released information is based on pre-release units.

Many things could change by the time the production ROM is released.

Please try to keep "chat" out of this thread, so we can keep it short(ish)

1: When?

The people who know can't tell us yet! Pre-order dates range from Aug - September depending on where you look. The device hasn't actually been officially announced by HTC yet!

There are strong rumours circulating that Europe release will be announced before 10/8/07
