In yet another reason for the HTC Desire owners to rejoice, the handset maker has decided to give a Gingerbread update to its Desire HD and the recently launched Desire Z smartphone. However, these updates will only be available only sometime before the end of June this year.
Notably, both the smartphones, HTC Desire and Desire Z, still runs on the older Android 2.2 Froyo operating system.
When asked by ‘The Mobile Indian’ about the reasons for the delay, HTC said, “We optimise the experience for each handset separately. For example, HTC Desire HD and Desire Z have different screen sizes. Hence, the delay in rolling out updated for both the devices.”
It is also expected that HTC is looking for a multi device update roll out during the given time period.
But, HTC Wildfire owners will not be so fortunate as the company has no plans for the Gingerbread update for the smartphone for now.
Meanwhile, the updates for the Desire smartphones will start rolling out in the UK first. All other countries, including India, are expected to get the updates in June or in July.
