HTC Desire to get Gingerbread UK update soon, okay?
iPhone users must snigger when they read about the trouble with HTC Desire's Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. You don't get such bother with an Apple product... but you do look like a pious twat, so things do balance out a little (but not wholly because Android users as equally preachy).
Anyway, there's been something of a soap opera surrounding the Gingerbread update, which is about to resolve in the UK.
Initially, HTC said that they wouldn't be making the update (which, in fairness, means absolutely nothing to most smartphone users) available for the Desire because of the pitiful memory it holds.
Then they changed their mind after a few dweebs kicked up a stink about it.
Since the announcement, there's been a drip-feed for tedious information, and the latest is that testing has finished, which we understand means that any major bugs have been ironed out and they're now sorting out the few remaining fiddly bits.
It is thought that the update will start appearing on smartphones before this month is out, or at the least, the start of next month.
One vaguely interesting thing is that the update is likely to be available for Desires that were bought SIM-free and unlocked, which is rather kind of HTC isn't it?
