HTC U-turns over Desire Android 2.3 update

Smartphone WILL get Gingerbread after all

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

HTC has hastily backtracked on yesterday's announcement that Desire owners won't get Gingerbread, announcing today that the Android 2.3 update will go ahead after all.

Posting on its Facecrack page, the Taiwanese mobile giant said simply: "Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire."

Dozens of you vented your disappointment after yesterday's reports that the Desire can't handle both Gingerbread and HTC's Sense UI.

While the latest announcement clearly states customers will be able to opt for Android 2.3, there no indication yet whether this means it will come at the cost of Sense.

We've asked HTC for clarification and will let you know as soon as we hear more. ®
