Android 2.3 Gingerbread on HTC Desire & Desire HD this month, Three

Three is on schedule to push out Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, to the HTC Desire and its HD video recording-enabled cousin later this month, it has been confirmed.

The update to the newest version of Google’s OS for smartphones was originally touted for a late May release. However, unspecified bugs discovered during Three's network testing meant the carrier was forced to postpone the rollout.

The good news today is that said glitches are seemingly almost banished, Three has announced via Twitter. And the happy consequence of that is that it’s now set to make Android 2.3 available before June is out.

Gingerbread, which first reared its head late last year and made its handset debut on the Google Nexus S, brings a suite of smart features to Desire Android kit. Perhaps chief among is a revamped virtual keyboard, enhanced copy and paste and performance optimisations for an all-round smoother and faster smartphone experience.

Three customers with the Samsung Galaxy S can download Android 2.3 now.
