Android Gingerbread update hits HTC Desire S on Vodafone

Vodafone has pushed out an OS bump for the HTC Desire S, fixing some irksome bugs and adding performance optimisations for a smoother smartie experience.

Available now as an over-the-air (OTA) download, the minor update addresses a text message issue that meant that senders’ info didn’t always appear correctly and improves uploading of snaps via HTC’s Peep native Twitter app.

Also incoming with the new version of the software is support for Desk Dock mode, plus improved call stability and performance enhancements.

Getting on board with Voda’s bump requires you to first download an update for the handset’s OTA services. Once you’ve got that, your phone will reboot and you’ll be prompted to grab the real thing.

News of developments comes after HTC last month became mired in controversy when it announced it was abandoning plans to update the original version of the Desire to Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread.

However, following a campaign from piqued owners, the phone-maker backed down and is pressing ahead with the update. HTC plans to overcome the Desire’s memory restrictions by omitting some apps from its Sense custom skin.
