HTC Desire Unlocked On Some Networks

Several of my friends and colleagues are now toting around the rightly popular HTC Desire with phone availability easing - for most networks anyway. It does appear that in order to feed the frenzy that the Desire has created some networks have been grabbing stock of unlocked handsets and reselling them as network stock. I can confirm that this is the case for handsets shipping from Vodafone and I believe that when Three starts sending them out they will also be shipping unlocked handsets.

As yet I've had no confirmation on what Orange and O2 are doing but it looks like T-Mobile handsets are both branded and network locked; which suggests that they're benefiting from being the first network to recognise the Desire's appeal and were first in the queue when the handsets were being dished out...
