HTC Desire supply issues in the UK due to stock requiring new ROM?
We're starting to get close to that promised time when the HTC Desire would finally be available, but it looks as though that there are supply issues that are preventing the device from being placed into the hands of UK customers. From the looks of it, a last minute release of a new ROM is causing the Android powered handset to be partly delayed and will require all units to be re-flashed before they are shipped off. Initially the handset was slated to go on sale by Monday March 29th, but now that date is looking more likely to be April 7th as it will take some time to get the new ROMs installed on all the units. Review units that were shipped out to bloggers and reviewers were re-flashed with the new ROM ahead of time before they were sent out while T-Mobile UK's version comes packed with their own ROM and was authorized by Google on an earlier date. Everyone else in the UK will still most likely have to wait before they get their hands on the HTC Desire – the desire for the smartphone is surely building slowly and steadily for those who've been waiting.
