The title say all, yes HTC Desire is not Getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update. This was confirmed by HTC on there Facebook page. The reason behind this is that HTC Desire simply doesn’t provide enough memory for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Here is HTC’s official statement:
Our engineering teams have been working hard for the past few months to find a way to bring Gingerbread to the HTC Desire without compromising the HTC Sense experience you’ve come to expect from our phones. However, we’re sorry to announce that we’ve been forced to accept there isn’t enough memory to allow us both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire. We’re sincerely sorry for the disappointment that this news may bring to some of you.
