As usual, XDA-Developers might have a solution – a custom firmware for the Desire that not only brings Froyo with HTC’s Sense UI on top, but also offers one very sweet extra – 720p video recording… Read more »

by 50 comments

We already wrote about the lucky guys who got their iPhone 4 a couple of days early, but they pre-ordered. If you didn’t but want one, well then we have some bad news – in its launch week the iPhone 4 will be rarer that unicorns in stores.

As for those who didn’t even reserve one, well, we won’t lie to you – your chances don’t look good.
