Gingerbread For Australian HTC Desire But Losing Sense
There’s been a bit of a hoo-har in the past over whether the HTC Desire would actually get updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, then HTC announced via their Facebook page they would deliver Gingerbread by removing apps, and now apparently over in Australia Telstra is going to make sure the HTC Desire gains the update by going even further.
According to the Telstra software updates page, the Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire is scheduled for release some time in August along with this… “Due to the increased memory requirements of the ‘Gingerbread’ update, new software that does not include HTC’s Sense UI is being prepared.”
The guys say that they figure that the move to Gingerbread will be optional for Telstra HTC Desire owners due to the “logistics of moving from a Sense ROM to stock Android.”
Still either way it looks like Australian HTC Desire owners won’t be left out in the cold when it comes to Android 2.3 Gingerbread unless they choose to be of course.
