Android 2.3 Update Starts Rolling Out to HTC Desire HD and Incredible S

Good news if you own a HTC Desire HD or the new HTC Incredible S as HTC has confirmed that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update has begun to roll out for both devices over-the-air.

HTC Incredible S

HTC had said that the Desire HD and the Incredible S would be getting the bump to Android 2.3 at some point in Q2 and sure enough, the company delivered on their promise. And while many of you might not have seen it pop up yet, rest assured its coming, because HTC has updated their support page to reflrect the new update.

Unfortunately, the company has not said how long the roll out might take but let’s hope it goes more smoothly than the Android 2.3 roll out for the Samsung Galaxy S.

This is a very good sign that the recently released (and previewed) HTC Droid Incredible 2 (and maybe the original Droid Incredible) is on the short list to get the Gingerbread update.

The HTC Desire Z and the HTC Desire should be getting their dose of Android 2.3 by the end of June.

Anyone seen the update hit their Desire HD or Incredible S yet?

    I have a desire hd ….I’m from England, UK my network provider is 3 and it is now the 5th of may….I have not yet received the update for 2.3 I rang 3 customer services and they sed they have not yet heard from android about the update which is disappointing and will mean that it is still probably going to take a while ….. I contacted android and they said they do not have any details available for when they are going to provide 3 with the information about the roll out of the update….it will probably be availsble this week but I’ve been waiting so long so this update and me knowing that other people have it and not me burns me up….hurry up 3…..does any1 have any info for me about when 3 will received the green light for the roll out of 2.3?

    I am really looking forward i buying HTC Desire Z, i Guess it has a 512 MB RAM which would be helpful for making my work faster, it will let me browse as well as help me in my office stuff as well, Since it has a Flash Player also it will be easy for me to browse the internet without restricting myself..

     Just got my update over the weekend 22nd May in UK (on orange – would never use 3 again cause they are soooo rubbish).

    Slight change to UI, but the only other noticeable change is that it has stopped updating my mail properly…
