I thought we are going to update at the end of JULY 2011. Today is 1st Aug. How long do we need to wait again.
I just hope that HTC Desire will no longer have the limitation of phone-only apps and the restriction of keeping contacts / calendar data on the phone rather than SD card. My phone runs out of memory even without any apps on the phone (just having a lot of phone-only storage for my contacts maxed it out).

Hi everyone. We have more news about our build of Gingerbread for Desire. Our testing has gone well so we will begin rolling out the update by the end of July! Thank you again for your support!
Liviu20xx, 12 Jul 2011My samsung galaxy S came with Android 2.1 now i have 2.3 so you are rong.Yes, well how is that 2.3 , as bad as 2.1? Samsung sucks at custom firmware.
TechSavvyJaz, 10 Jul 2011Cool Kingdom?? RCMIX?? which ROM are you using now??not sure about the other guys, but i used ReflexS from neophyte to upgrade my desire to 2.3.3 with sense 3.0, and i love it.
i was running a desire HD rom before this (RCMixHD), with i guess sense 2.1?
The ReflexS rom 2.1.7 is waaaaay smoother than the rcmixhd i was using, so im glad i didnt go the RCMixS. Reflex also seems to have more room for apps. the app2sd function seems to be work better , as i restored all my apps from the old ROM, but have more internal room now (90mb as opposed to 10!)
i dont get any lag, and all the apps work perfectly.
GB + sense 3.0 + an official swype install from their beta program, and its now my perfect desire!
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2011Would anonymous (or anybody else educated) who installed HTC Sense 3 and/or Android 2.3 Ginger... moreyou can do that with help of this
I've got gingerbread on mine and have had for a few months now, using a leedroid rom off xda developers, the only thing is it doesnt have the sense 3, but I'll be changing to a different rom soon with sense 3.
XEN, 10 Jul 2011I hate hTC lies. That's enough. Never again will not be taking a buy hTC phones.are you crazy??? just tell me witch smartphone manufacturer did 2 major software updates other than HTC .. NONE ... desire was made for eclair(2.1) and then we got 2.2 witch worked even beter , now we have 2.3 witch wasn't even in plan when phone was relesed. manufactures don't relese updates nowdays so you buy new models and get more money that's the reason
I dont really care about this update, i find froyo works fine. I am just waiting for Android 4.0 icecream, there will be no more fragmentation, every phone will be running the the same os model and we will all receive updates over the air.
You won't get sense 3 with this update,but you can install it when you root your phone thru ROM ... I have tryed this and i am not satisfied with how it works on my desire ... It is verry slow and laggy and it get's worse after some time.
