Attention HTC Desire owners: Android 2.3 Gingerbread update confirmedLegacy HTC Desire owners will get a taste of Android 2.3 Gingerbread in one or two months after the upcoming Desire S is released. That means that if you currently travel the mobile highway with a Desire, Desire HD or Desire Z, your future will certainly include the latest build.

There’s no guarantees for software updates in this crazy mobile space we call Android. Fortunately, Cnet UK has been able to track down some concrete details — a rarity by today’s standards. Rather than risk skewing the facts, let’s go straight to the horse’s mouth:

We did manage to get HTC’s man to say that the first Gingerbread update would be released within a month of the Desire S hitting shop shelves, but then he changed his mind and said it would probably occur within two months.

So let’s lay out the possible roadmap. The HTC Desire S is scheduled to release in the second quarter of 2011. In the worst case scenario this means either late May or June, leaving the original Desire series in position for a late June or July Gingerbread update. Not as soon as we’d have liked, but still better late than never.

    I'm done with Androids for this particular reason, I hope iPhone comes to sprint rather then to leave Sprint for Verizon.

      The iphone updates once a year & Android twice a year, so Android is better than iphone in this way. I could never move from Android to iphone until the iphone gets widgets, even then I still prefer Android because of the multiple manufactures & hardware to choose from.

    Nice but because the desire has such small amount of memory I only have 15mb free & that is with everything that can be on the SD card is. Anyway by the time this comes out I will be saying good by to HTC (there new line up, not impressed) I will have the Motorola Atrix, which should!!!! have Gingerbbread by then, hopefully.
