HTC promises Desire upgrade to Android 2.3 by end of July

HTC Desire Android 2.3 accelerated to late July

HTC updated Desire owners Friday with news that the upgrade to Android 2.3 was moving faster than expected. Tests had "gone well" and would see the OS upgrade come before the end of July. HTC was quiet on which carrier models would get it first.

The smartphone giant triggered scorn last month when it first said it couldn't upgrade the Desire because its own custom Sense interface and apps chewed too much memory. Uproar from owners was enough that HTC reversed its decision and decided to go ahead, even if it meant sacrifices. Australian carrier Telstra understood HTC would drop Sense or some of it to make the OS fit.

Policies on the upgrades have rekindled arguments over Android fragmentation. The Desire's exact counterpart, Google's official Nexus One, uses stock Android and had no problems getting Android 2.3 weeks after it had been unveiled to the world.
