UK owners of phones in the best-selling Desire range will definitely be getting an OS bump to Gingerbread, an HTC rep has confirmed.
The phone maker’s plans for its handsets emerged in what appears to have been an informal chat between Cnet’s UK journos and an HTC mover and shaker at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
However, according to the HTC representative, the update might be a while coming. Apparently, it’ll only be pushed out around two months after the latest addition to the Desire family, the Desire S, hits UK carriers in the spring.
The first phones to get Gingerbread will be the HTC Desire HD and the Desire Z. The original Desire will reportedly be updated too, but owners are looking at a slightly longer wait.
Gingerbread debuted on the Google Nexus S back in late December. The delay in bringing it to third-party phones is likely to have been partly caused by manufacturers ensuring compatibility with their Android custom skins.
