HTC Desire

A post on the official Twitter account of British carrier Three indicates that the original HTC Desire will receive an official update to Gingerbread, confirming rumors from MWC earlier this week. Responding to a tweet asking whether Three would carry Gingerbread for the Desire, the carrier said - 

"Yes we will but we don't have timescales yet :-)"

Reports appeared on CNET UK's Crave blog earlier this week suggesting a Gingerbread update for the Desire would appear within a month or two of the Desire S's launch, however this is the first semi-official confirmation that an update is indeed in the works.

Today's revelations will come as welcome news to owners of the original Desire, which launched last April with Android 2.1 and was one of the first phones to see an official Froyo update. [ianmcmillan on Twitter, ThreeUK on Twitter, CNET Crave UK]

Same with the DInc... odd i didn't think vendors would push updates to phones that old. Mad Props to HTC for their commitment.

Since US Cellular released Froyo for Desire last week it looks like 2012 for Gingerbread... I'll stick with CM7...

Sweet!!

Been looking around for a upgrade from my Desire but still haven't found a worthy device (about same size, AMOLED screen, better performance, more memory) but with this news I might just wait a while longer.
