Android 2.3 Gingerbread hits HTC Desire HD on Three

Three has begun rolling out Android 2.3 - AKA Gingerbread - to HTC Desire HD owners, adding some smart new features to the best-selling smartie.

The OS bump was originally scheduled to drop back in May before being delayed by “some bugs” that meant that HTC was unable to deliver it to the network in time.

However, a Tweet from Three today confirms that these have been ironed out and that Android 2.3 is available now as an over the air update.

New additions you can look forward once you’ve got Gingerbread up and running include a revamped virtual keyboard and improved copy and paste functionality. There’s also a host of performance optimisations for an all-round faster and slicker smartphone experience.

News of the software bump's availability for the Desire HD comes after a social networking fanstorm recently forced HTC to reconsider its plans to abandon plans for an update to Android 2.3 for its older brother, the original Desire.

HTC now apparently intends to surmount the Desire’s lack of memory, which had reportedly caused the update to be scrapped, by ditching some apps from its Sense custom skin.
