HTC has finally released Gingerbread update for its smartphone Desire, but that’s not all! The update comes with a package. Unlike other Andriod updates this one has not been pushed over the air. It has to be downloaded and installed as a ROM on your HTC Desire. However, installation process will wipe out data from your Android phone. You may lose your emails, messages, contacts or other personal information. So only go for this update if you have a backup ready for your data.
This update is actually meant for expert users. Owing to Desire’s memory constraints the update has been squeezed and certain applications have in fact also been removed to enable it to adjust to the HTC Sense interface and the limited memory.
Initially HTC had announced that due to memory constraints it would not be possible to bring the Android update to HTC and at the same time keep running the Sense interface. But this statement as faced with sever user backlash and resultantly HTC had to change its stance and bring this update.
The HTC Desire was released in April 2010. A little outdated may be as compared to the latest Android smartphones, which boast of 8GB of internal memory. Desire on the other hand only has a storage of 512 MB. In case you were thinking of getting a Desire, you may want to have a look at TestFreaks.com for some more reviews by both experts as well as users.
