HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread Update this month

July 11, 2011

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.

HTC Desire WILL get the Gingerbread 2.3 Update

June 17, 2011

Android Robot and GingerbreadIt’s been an odd week for HTC Desire owners. HTC announced that the Desire wouldn’t see the Gingerbread update due to limitations with the Desire’s memory – we’ve all seen it let’s be honest. However, yesterday HTC posted on their Facebook page that they would indeed release Gingerbread with Sense for the Desire after all.

HTC will remove some of a crap that usually ships with their software and Desire owners can rejoice in the knowledge that soon, Gingerbread with HTC Sense will be coming over-the-air in the end.
