Reports from various forums are confirming that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates for unbranded British HTC Desire HD's and Incredible S's are now rolling out to users, just as HTC promised last week. On the Desire HD, the update will also bring users up to HTC Sense 2.1, which includes a couple of new features like a quick settings tab in the notification area and a slightly redesigned app drawer.
This should also be good news for owners of the Inspire 4G and Droid Incredible 2. With these devices' European cousins now running Android 2.3, hopefully it won't be long before they get their own taste of Gingerbread.
If you've got an unbranded Desire HD or Incredible S that was purchased in the UK, head on over to Settings -> About Phone -> System Software Updates to grab the new firmware. If your phone is carrier-branded, you'll have to wait just a little while longer for your network to approve the update.
