HTC has taken the somewhat unusual step of issuing a firmware update for the Desire HD just weeks after the handset went on sale in the UK.
Announced on the phone maker's support pages, the over-the-air update reportedly brings with it "screen control and photo message compatibility enhancements", as well as improving performance and adding as-yet-unspecified new functions to the handset’s feature set.
HTC recommends using a home broadband Wi-Fi connection for downloading the upgrade, due to its size and has assured users that content loaded on the phone will not be affected.
It’s not yet clear why HTC felt moved to issue an update so early in the life of the Desire HD. However, rumours suggest that there could be some problems with the handset’s proximity sensor that were not ironed out prior to release.
Desire HD owners can check if their download is successful by heading to: MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software Information>Software number. If everything is tickety-boo, the last field should read: 1.32.405.3.
