Where is gingerbread? They announced it back in february and again last week after they made a massive mistake to cancel it and take us all for a fool.
Its about time for release for the update.
If you promise to deliver, then do it.
Take control HTC, credibility is at stake, deliver us.

Sujay, 18 Jun 2011I need to know is Wildfire S or Desire ..... I am confused please help ...with reasonsI work in a phone shop and I also have the Desire. I sell both phones and am very impressed with the wildfire s but the desire is a more powerful phone and I prefer the bigger screen. The processor is quicker on the Desire and the price is higher for a reason. But the Wildfire s is selling well and I will be recommending it to my father who wants a good affordable phone with his upgrade. I will be staying with HTC for a long time. Every phone has draw backs and the Desire is the battery life.

Hello. It is the ROM? It is a few megabytes of RoM?
thnks for helping.
HTC will bring Android 2.3 to Desire. You can even read it from GSMArena.
I am an user of HTC Desire for last 10 months and here are the major disadvantages I have faced for which I have decided not to use a HTC device any more in future.
1. Microsoft & Google hate each other, it is evident in Android. If your enterprise runs Exchange email, you should think many times before buying HTC's android based phones. Initially it took me 1 month trying many hacks on my phone to get the calendar to sync with Exchange. However after the initial success, almost every 15 days thereafter the account used to stop syncing by giving some weird reason such as "sync protocol error" etc. The only way to get around was to delete the exchange account from the phone and reconfigure the whole thing. It was such a productive exercise on a smartphone whose intention is to improve your productivity. Yes, I know there are applications like "Touchdown", but they are not free. In case the phone has a problem, its better if the manufacturer bundles this app free of cost with the phone.
2. Quite a few times, the exchange account reconfiguration created a new issue where the empty contact list on the phone (since the exchange account were deleted after it stopped syncing) went back to exchange account and deleted all entries from the exchange as well!!!! Since I had my contacts backed up on some other device, I was able to survive. But, what a piece of marvel this HTC phone is, you can very well understand yourself.
3. Android market has some hundreds of thousands of application and the number is growing, but it doesn't matter if you carry a HTC phone in your pocket. The reason is the super brilliant engineering that HTC did on it's phone's memory design. HTC phones has a RAM, ROM and SD card slot. In comparison iPhone or Samsung Galaxy has RAM, very large FLASH based ROM and may be an additional SD card slot in case of Galaxy. The HTC ROM holds Android OS and many application that doesn't support movement to SD Card slot. And in fact, even if an application support move to SD card slot, still a portion of that application resides on the phone ROM. HTC Desire has some 500MB+ ROM, but just the basic android loaded, it shows free ROM as some 110+ MB and after loading a few applications (may be 10-15), you will run out of ROM space. So there will be many applications or games which will be teasing you from the Android market, but Alas, you don't have space in the phone on a phone that is priced in the same range like a Galaxy where you have a 16GB based Flash ROM which can hold may be 50 times more number of apps than a HTC.
4. One of the most pathetic battery in the market. Doesn't even provide 2-3 hrs of talk time. For a minimal use on a 2G network, even with 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth disabled, be prepared to charge in it every 12 hours.
5. Extremely poor quality speakerphone, virtually non usable.
6. No future android upgrades, Android 2.3 has been denied on this phone. This trend may continue in future.
7. This is my 7th mobile phone and for the first time, all of my friends started complaining immediately after switching over to the HTC phone is "your phone comes unavailable" so many times. Don't know if some other HTC user has also faced this problem
8. Poor support, almost non existent. A couple of times try from my side was just waste of time.
DESIGNERICON1984, 14 Jun 2011BREAKING NEWS ,,,no 2.3.3. for desire finally...thank god I got desire hd...HTC can't seem to make up its mind about the Android 2.3 fate for its HTC Desire handset. After promising an Android 2.3 upgrade for its HTC Desire handset, HTC said on June 14 that it had determined the phone would not be able to handle the Gingerbread software along with its integrated Sense UI. In a statement posted to Facebook, HTC announced it's "been forced to accept there isn’t enough memory to allow [it] both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire." HTC went on to say it was "sincerely sorry for the disappointment." Then, a day later, following (understandable) outrage among users, HTC posted another message to Facebook: "Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire."
HTC has let down their desire customers
we bought it thinking that its a co-brother of Nexus and they happened to break the family relation :(
Wrong move HTC, when Wildfire can have gingerbread, y not Desire ?
So disappointed by this stupid move HTC...

tsk, 15 Jun 2011Now they say it will have 2.3First they said 2.3 is out for Desire by the end of June. Then they cancelled it, and now they are continuing it. Lets just hope they stay on schedule. Hope they fix the time stamp issue as well.
