    Will Sprint be getting a CDMA/GSM/HSPA/EDGE World Phone version at some point?

    Yeah,thats what Im wondering. Will sprint be getting this phone? The only thing is that I am switching over to android and this hd phone would be awesome with android.

    So now we need to find out which carrier(s) will get it and when. and more importantly, will there be a version with a sliding keyboard?

    The HD series was never meant to have a hardware keyboard, it was designed as a large format display device with the display as the primary input device. As for carriers, if the first device wasn’t even considered by carriers, don’t expect this one to get picked up either.

    Don’t forget that HTC also handles their own US 3G versions and releases them unlocked though third party dealers like Best Buy and independents.

    Well if HTC directly releases an unlocked version, we know it isn’t for Sprint or Verizon. So I guess the question is then: will it be for AT&T, T-Mobile, or both?

    HTC really needs to make an HD with a keyboard too. There is no way I’ll be getting this one without a keyboard. But if they had one with a keyboard and a tilting screen, I’d probably be freaking out about it.

    […] T-Mobile version is expected to be launched on the carrier before the previously stated Q1 2010 US release timeframe and will herald new services for the carrier such as ebook downloads […]
