Now that's a bit of unexpected news. HTC all of a sudden has decided that Gingebread will eventually come to the Desire. Yesterday the company announced that due to lack of memory the company's last year flagship is not eligible for an update to Android 2.3.

However, as it turns out, people's voice does matter and due to the enormous pressure generated from yesterday's statement, HTC immediately reconsidered their decision. Well done, HTC, you managed to solve the RAM puzzle, didn't you?

One thing to note, though. Did HTC really think they could get away with such laziness and just throw the Desire for dead without considering there might be some unhappy users? It's understandable to ditch a phone like the Hero, but the Desire? Come on, HTC.

Update: As it turns out HTC will cut some of the preinstalled apps to make the update possible. However you will still be able to download the ones that didn't make it from the Android Market so it's not a huge loss. You can learn more about that new turn of events here. Source

If you were all really that bothered about GB you'd have rooted your device ages ago and been running if for months thanks to people like Richard Trip, Adam G etc etc

This means the desire will keep outperforming an iphone4 for a while on software. Now all I have to do is to switch the plastic lens for a saphire glass lens and the fotos and videos will be cristal clear and even better then the iphone. Who need...
