UPDATE: HTC Desire to Get Gingerbread After All!

*UPDATE: HTC have now specified that they will cut “select apps” from the Gingerbread update for the Desire in order to resolve the memory issues; good news or bad?

Well, it was a sad time for Desire owners; with the news that HTC were not able to bring Gingerbread to the year-old best seller. But today all those  angry commenters over on HTCs Facebook page will have to retract their statements as HTC have now corrected themselves, saying they will in fact be bringing the update to the Desire, although with no mention of a timeframe.

Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire.

Above is the statement pulled straight from HTC UK’s Facebook page, with the German page stating something similar (Google Translate is your friend).

This is great news I’m sure for any Desire owner feeling that their device is aging a little too much for their liking; that is of course if they didn’t jump ship yesterday and go down the modding route.

So, does this change your views on HTC? And are you excited about this long overdue boost? Let your voice be heard in the comments below or of course on our own Facebook page.
