We reported back in February that owners of the HTC Desire will eventually be getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for their handsets. This news was from HTC, but today we have news that the Android Gingerbread update could come by mid-May.
Richard Goodwin from Know Your Mobile is reporting in an article that, UK carrier Three Mobile has said the update will begin arriving for its Desire owners in mid-May. The handset might have been out quite a while now, but it is still a worthy handset. With the update installed it will improve the handset further.
Many owners still enjoy using their Desire and will be pleased to hear of the upcoming software update. The network confirmed the news via its Twitter feed, and should mean other networks will also be pushing out the update soon as well.
Android Gingerbread will mainly speed up the device, and improve power consumption. You will also find a few UI enhancements like the Downloads application. This will allow users to view all of their most recent downloads.
The Desire will benefit greatly from the Android update, especially with battery life which many owners complained about when the handset was first released. Unfortunately there is no news on when the rest of the Desire range will start receiving Android Gingerbread.
Are you looking forward to get Android Gingerbread on your Desire?
