HTC flip flops on Gingerbread for Desire plans
HTC has performed a giant U-turn announcing that despite previous word to the contrary it will now launch the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the former market leading HTC Desire handset.
Less than 24 hours after it declared that it would no longer be bringing the Android 2.3 update to the Desire, HTC has announced via its official UK Facebook and Twitter feeds that: "Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire."
Despite stating the Desire had ‘too little memory’ to support the 2.3 Gingerbread rendition of Google’s Android mobile OS, HTC appears to have found sufficient space for the software overhaul after users and networks hit back at the decision to can the update.
As well as facing countless cries of anger from Desire users on Facebook and Twitter HTC was faced with disappointed responses from networks who carry the former iPhone bothering handset.
"We only just found out and are sorry for the inconvenience this causes to our customers,” announced an official release from Three. "As you know, at Three we always try to bring the latest software updates to our customers as soon as possible, and we'll continue to work closely with all our partners to continue doing so going forward."
Was HTC’s move to bring back the Gingerbread for Desire update the company listening to user demand or cowering at the sign of unhappiness with the brand? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
