As I was writing this post about how disappointing it was that Gingerbread was not coming to the HTC Desire, news broke that it actually is coming.
Originally HTC UK stated on its Facebook page that they just couldn’t get it done.
“Our engineering teams have been working hard for the past few months to find a way to bring Gingerbread to the HTC Desire without compromising the HTC Sense experience you’ve come to expect from our phones. However, we’re sorry to announce that we’ve been forced to accept there isn’t enough memory to allow us both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire.”
Then, today there’s a post saying that there will be Gingerbread for the Desire.
“Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire.”
All the collective Desire owners sigh in relief. Not that the average user will notice a whole lot of change, but an update is an update and its nice to be on the latest firmware instead of being stuck in what I like to call “The Vista of Android”, 2.1, like the HTC Hero (UK).
