HTC raised the hopes of HTC Desire and Desire HD owners today, an official Tweet read “European Desire HD/Desire Z users – look out for an update rolling out from today that will make your mobile experience even better”.
Users probably thought they were going to receive the box fresh Android Gingerbread update – sadly this wasn’t the case.
After realizing their Christmas Eve gaff HTC issued another Tweet dashing the hopes of owners: “To clarify, the Desire Z/Desire HD update is a maintenance build based on all your feedback. Gingerbread is not a part of this update”.
So HTC giveth, HTC taketh away – however the update will bring an improved switching process for home screens. Users will also benefit from an updated call screen which allows users to put calls on hold, view contacts whilst on the phone and add new calls.
Google officially rolled out Android 2.3 Gingerbread earlier this month launching the brand new Nexus S Smartphone. No other phone has received the update and it looks like HTC Desire owners will have to keep on waiting.
