HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread Update this month

After a bit of a holiday in the US of A I’m back in England and ready to get back to work 🙂

HTC were umming and ahhing about the Gingerbread update for the original Desire due to limits with the internal memory etc but then caved into the pressure of Desire owners and said they would indeed get the Gingerbread update sent out to the handset’s owners.

HTC have now confirmed the update will be rolled out this month. Obviously operator updates will follow shortly after but it’s great news for the public.

The Inquirer have just posted this on the story:

TAIWANESE PHONE MAKER HTC has confirmed that the rollout of Android 2.3 Gingerbread to its Desire handset will begin by the end of the month.

It’s been a rocky road but HTC has finally given Desire owners a set forecast for the software upgrade. The news comes as a big relief to customers who are eagerly awaiting the newer version of the operating system.

As usual HTC used its Facebook page to make the announcement and said, “Hi everyone. As some of you have seen already, we have more news about our build of Gingerbread for Desire. Our testing has gone well so we will begin rolling out the update by the end of July. Thank you again for your support.”

HTC first announced the update back in February but then changed its mind because of the memory limitations of the phone. Desire owners were understandably unhappy about the U-turn and a day later HTC caved in to the demand.

    The problem still remains there’s no intenral memory storage on Desire. Contacts keep getting bigger and having to uninstall more and more apps (some paid for) to keep phone running. Looking forward to upgrade. Will pay more careful attention to internal storage (as well as battery life) next time.

      Yeah, hopefully if they get the Apps2SD correct then you’ll be able to run most your apps from the SD card instead… Here’s hoping!
