HTC has just confirmed that its latest batch of superphones will get the upgrade to Android Gingerbread in Q2.
The Desire HD, Desire Z and Incredible S all launched with Android 2.2 Froyo, but as is so common with Android, it wasn't long before they were outdated by the announcement of 2.3 Gingerbread, currently available on the Google Nexus S and arriving soon on the Nexus One.
But what's this? Gingerbread will come to the original HTC Desire too, which makes sense, as it's HTC's best selling device. Launched with Android 2.1 and recently upgraded to 2.2, the HTC Desire, unlike the other three handsets, does not have the latest HTC Sense interface or HTCSense.com backup service launched with HTC's Android 2.2 phones.
HTC was unable to confirm whether the update to Gingebread would give it these features. "Updates to HTC Sense experience and Sense.com are independent of upgrades to the core OS on our phones," said an HTC spokesperson.
