HTC Desire HD for Telus in the wild?
Certainly seems like Canadian carriers are a good deal more friendly toward launching European handsets than American carriers are, doesn't it? Motorola's Milestone and HTC's Desire Z are both prime examples -- and now it looks like another hot HTC, the Desire HD, is on its way. MobileSyrup appears to have scored a shot of a Desire HD running Telus firmware, claiming that it's currently tracking for release in either January or February -- presumably with most or all of the specs that grace its European cousin: 4.3-inch WVGA display, HTCSense.com integration, a 1GHz second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon core, and 8 megapixel camera, just to name a few luscious spec line items. Unfortunately, the skeptic in us doesn't think January / February gives either HTC or Telus enough time to turn out a skinner Gingerbread firmware here -- but considering what a minor release Gingerbread really is, we're sure plenty of buyers will be able to overlook the indiscretion (particularly with a little help from xda-developers, if you catch our drift).
