HTC Desire won't get Android 2.3 until after spring

HTC Desire Android 2.3 update not coming soon

The Android 2.3 update for the HTC Desire will not be released until a couple of months after the Desire S launches in the spring. Crave got this information from an HTC representative at the Mobile World Congress show, who at first said the update is coming one month after the release of the Desire S, but then changed his mind to say two months. Furthermore, the Desire HD and Desire Z should be the first Desire phones to get the update.

The Desire S is likely to begin shipping sometime in May, so the earliest Android 2.3 would arrive is sometime in June. If it's delayed and the source's information holds true, it won't arrive until August or September. Each carrier may prolong the process further, as it may want to perform some own custom modifications to the software.
