    Anyone have the latest release date for the Skyrocket HD. I'm trying to patiently wait but my old Motorola Backflip is falling apart. Almost at the end of my roll of duct tape.

    I'm thinking of buying the Skyrocket out now AND HOPE the HD version is available within the 30 day return window.

    Haven't heard one, but you might try the separate forum specifically for the HD.

    So if it is released on April 8th, does anyone know when it will be available for purchase, or is it available immediately?

    If it is released on 4-8, then you should be able to walk into an AT&T store and purchase one that day.

    Skyrocket HD doesn't make sense with its pentile screen, and One X and Xperia Ion and Galaxy S III not too far away.

    Agreed...as much as I like my "regular" SR, if given the choice to upgrade in a few weeks, I'd wait until any of the quad-cores come out.

    It makes sense if you are within your 30 day takeback period on a new "regular" SkyRocket.

    The Skyrocket HD is NOT coming out on April 8th. There is no launch date yet. If there was, you'd find it on the homepage of this website. Drudging a forum isn't going to get you any info that isn't readily reported.

    Well it may not be released, who knows...but here is an article in the Washington Post Business and Tech section that claims to know:

    AT&T confirms Nokia’s Lumia 900 for April 8 at $100, along with a slew of new devices - The Washington Post

    I stopped by an AT&T store on the way home from work this afternoon and they told me it would be in stores Monday, 4/9, since they are closed on Easter Sunday. Not all stores will have them. The store I stopped at wasn't selected as one of the stores to carry it. They were heavily pushing the Note.

    I called my at&t store and they didn't get any in their shipment. Bummer.

    I stopped by my local ATT store and they have absolutely no knowledge of the release of the HD version and have no details about the specs either. Seems like they're being selective about what markets to release it, IF it actually shows up anywhere..

    Ducstonr.. Am curious where you live and whether any of the stores actually get it!

    The att I stopped at today said Monday also, but they were not scheduled to have any until later in the week. An ATT retail store at the mall said they would have them Monday.

    ...my AT&T and shop have NO idea about said device. I just want more info on it, i.e. what the real benefit is of HD. I'd hate to waste another $50-$100 more than I've JUST spent on my Skyrocket, for the HD, if it is simply a 'better' display of photos, videos, etc.

    Sounds to me like an iPhone 4-to-iPhone 4S

    Just spoke to 2 larger stores in the Philadelphia area ... and one over in NJ ...

    All of them said they do not have a release date.

    Two of them said that the new phones release every other Sunday, and that this past weekend did not include the HD. Therefore, unless it is a big promotional release, they dont expect any new models for another two weeks.

    (one store also told me that they get them in stock by the night before, so they can sell them upon the store opening the next day)

    So I guess we have to wait 2 more weeks to see if they start shipping

    OK.. this is strange that bdurb456 in NJ is hearing the ATT stores will have them this week and a couple of other areas have said the same thing, though the consensus is that it's not coming out.. Seems to me that we're dealing with some ATT sales people that are just sayin' they're getting the HD without actually knowing, LOL. Go figure

    Either that or the release will not be nationwide, but will be targeted areas.

    I just called my local AT&T store and they never head of the SkyRocket HD. He kept thinking I meant the current SkyRocket. Other than the screen, what is the point of getting this phone?

    Matt.. from what I've read there will be other improvements beyond just the screen which it appears may be larger than the SR. Why go through the trouble of releasing a new version if all the manufacturer is doing would be more pixels in the screen? Doesn't make sense. I have to think that Sammy will introduce something new with the HD. Time will tell
