    When's the HTC Kaiser in the UK on contract?

    Hey folks,

    Just wondering if anyone had any more useful info on when this phone is likely to appear here?

    I'm keen to get hold of a date as my Orange contract is up in July at which point I'm moving provider asap but I want to wait for the right handset!

    I think 3G is a must next time round, and I fancy trying the keyboard thing to ensure I use the bandwidth for more than browsing Kaiser seems a no-brainer except for the teeny problem that its not out yet...


    Anyone know more?

    "According to the BGR contact at HTC, the Kaiser should start shipping in July!"

    Looks sweet. The UK are fairly slow at picking up some phones though, and miss some all together.

    I'm pondering a new phone and contract at the moment, but I might end up dumping the smartphones in aid of something cheap and PAYG. C500 has servered me well though (shame my Vario died after a month of so).

    Thanks for the good news

    Hmm, that's rather encouraging, and I'm positive the Kaiser will make it to these shores, especially with HTC's push towards consolidated branding which will make them even more keen to get their best units on the ground!

    I'm fancying T-Mobile so I hope they can stock the shelves quickly enough! Likewise I've been on C500 then C600 for three years now so thought I'd give the full PDA phone a bash. We shall see!

    I'd guess T-Mobile & Vodafone will have this phone during August sometime, though most likely towards the end of the month. HTC are being very coy about it as they're trying to focus media attention on the TOUCH for the next month. I think we'll start hearing a lot more about the Kaiser in early to middle July.

    This is going to be a VERY popular phone because there are a lot of people who have held off upgrading to get this phone (me included). If you really want one, you better get your name down early (once people are taking pre-orders) because they're going to be impossible to find for the first month or two in my opinion.

    My contract ran out in September last year and I have been waiting for something decent to "spend" my upgrade on. I was waiting for Sony to bring out something special but that didn't happen (though they're releasing some new models this week I believe), and the N95 is a joke with it's pathetic battery life.

    I was also thinking about getting one of these phones when it comes out. Has anyone here got one yet that can write a bit about what they think of it? I would just like to get a few people's opinions before buying it.

    The Kaiser is now the HTC TyTN II / Vodafone V1615 with a suggested late September / early October release. Rumours are that it will also come with touchflo (HTC's iPhone-like front end) by the time it's released.



    Nice phone, insane specs!

    On the horizon:

    HTC Touch II (Imagine the existing HTC Touch along with the TouchFLO technology but with 3G, HSPDA, FM Radio, GPS and a slide-down numeric keyboard added in.)



    I really want Built in GPS but i'm tempted by:




    Which can be bought cheaply from http://www.vodafonebusinessshop.co.u...1415-2910.html

    Re: When's the HTC Kaiser in the UK on contract?

    I have pre-ordered it (sim free though) and the site I ordered it from said it would be in stock on the 5th September.

    If you're interested, the site is powerupmobile.com

    Hope that helps.

    Although I have seen a couple of other sites taking orders for them which state 31st August, but I was going for the cheapest option so I went to powerupmobile.

    Their data tariffs were the best around for a long time. Not sure how they compare to Vodafone and 3 these days though.
