HTC confirm Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire

Android Robot and GingerbreadHTC announced today that the HTC Desire along with the Google Nexus One, Desire HD, Desire Z and the new Nexus S – good news especially for Nexus S owners who have purchased a brand new phone with an out-of-date operating system.

So what new things can we expect from this 2.3 update? Apart from the usual speed and interface improvements, Google are promising NFC (near field communication) – useless here in the UK because we don’t have any NFC systems yet. SIP is also a new feature which is something I miss from my Nokia N95. Having a SIP account allows you to use WiFi to make cheap/often free phone calls to other people.

Battery life improvements, improved multi-tasking and memory management are just some of the other things you can expect when the update is released during Q2 of this year.

Bring it on! 🙂
