Android Gingerbread Heading for HTC Desire, Z, HD, Incredible S in Q2

For anyone owning a European Handset of the HTC Desire family or the HTC Incredible S you just might like to hear that your Android smartphone should be seeing an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread in the not too distant future.

According to an article over on the Boy Genius Report, the guys over at Slash Gear are saying that HTC has informed them that the HTC Desire, HTC Desire Z, HTC Desire HD and the HTC Incredible S handset will be updated from Android 2.2 Froyo to Gingerbread sometime in Q2.

Apparently HTC officially announced… “We are excited to announce that the Desire HD, Desire Z, Desire and Incredible S will receive the Gingerbread update in Q2.”

So there you have it, at least over here in Europe we don’t seem to be having as many delays with operating system updates as they do over in the good ole US of A. So any of our Desire toting readers excited about getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread?

      Quarter 2 numb nutts. How many quarters in a year eh? Divide it up….thats it…….penny dropping yet?

  1. Last Year when Froyo came out HTC said Q2 and in reality it was August before the OTA update finally was released, so I wouldn't hold your breath if you are expecting a release in May.

    The excitement for 2.3 fizzled out last year! 2.4 is due out in August, so when i get my 2.3 update, which im guessing will end up being Q3 than Q2, there will be 2.4 out. Can i skip 2.3 and have 2.4 please? 🙂

    My Desire does just what I want now.. how will the upgrade benefit really? Even with Apps 2 SD it only has so much memory on board….

    I'm pretty happy with Froyo on my HTC Desire HD. When Gingerbread comes I'll upgrade but I'm in no rush, I want it to work most importantly!
