The mooted Android update to Gingerbread for the original HTC Desire on 3 now won’t land until Mid-May, the carrier has confirmed.
Owners of HTC’s breakthrough Android smartie were originally set to get on board with the newest version of Google’s OS for handsets at the end of this month or early May at the latest. Or at least that’s what a Tweet from 3 had promised.
However, it now seems we’ll all be waiting a bit longer to get our hands on some Gingerbread goodness. But not too much longer, happily.
According to a moderator’s response to an enquiry on 3’s blog, the OS bump has been rescheduled for the “middle of May”.
The cause of the delay isn’t explained. But you can bet your bottom dollar it’ll be the usual hurdles of having to go through network testing or last-minute problems encountered by HTC with getting Gingerbread to work with its Sense custom skin.
When it does finally arrive it promises to be worth the wait, though. New features it’ll add to your Desire include a revamped onscreen keyboard, plus a streamlined user interface.
