HTC Butterfly UK release date

Is there any word on when the HTC Butterfly might be released here? Any chance of seeing it before Christmas in the UK?

They've broadly said it's not coming over. I'd estimate more chance of the world ending before Christmas than htc launching it here in next fortnight.

OK so its very unlikely to be a UK model (grey import) but interesting to see nontheless

Soon as I saw expansys in the link I knew we were safe.

I;d wait until competitors launch their own phone with a larger and/or removable battery...

Yep - looks like there'll be plenty to choose from (Sony, Oppo, ZTE, SGSIV)
Unless of course you just HAVE to have Sense.

Once you break free from "needing" Sense, you'll wonder why you were ever so bothered about it. Not having sense was one of my biggest concerns moving from the Desire to the S2, now I wouldn't use Sense if you paid me to.

Do fully agree about waiting for some 1080p competition, though. No point buying an expensive grey import just to have the first 1080p phone. When has first ever been best? The first: 720p (GNex), dual-core (LG 2X), and quad-core (One X) smartphones were all soon bested by their slightly later arriving competition.
