Ah. So that answers that. If you were wondering how HTC plans on getting Android 2.3 Gingerbread and its Sense user interface onto the HTC Desire after it previously said it couldn't be done, we now have your answer. In an update on Facebook, HTC explains:
To resolve Desire's memory issue and enable the upgrade to Gingerbread, we will cut select apps from the release. Look for status updates starting next week. We apologize for any confusion.
Makes sense to us. Now the question is, which apps will be removed?
