HTC delays the HTC HD2 because of faulty ROM ?

Looks like there was indeed some problems with the final “retail” ROM of the HTC HD2. Yesterday, Solopalmari did some benchmarks after applying the final ITA retail ROM and found that the device’s performance took a nose dive. It now looks like HTC took notice:

“The firmware is currently in possession of blogs and newspapers, initially taken for short, is rather to be considered very tentative. HTC notify its users and journalists when the final release of the Italian ROM will be ready.”

It still not clear if this problem only affects the Italian ROM (I hope so!). Interestingly Expansys France has also delayed the first shipment until November 28th (was supposed to be shipping today), the device is already available in some countries though.
