HTC giving up on upgrading the Desire to Android 2.3

updated 02:40 pm EDT, Tue June 14, 2011

Insufficient memory blamed for decision

HTC has finally admitted that it no longer plans to bring Android 2.3 to the company's Desire handset. In a Facebook post, a representative claimed engineering teams have been working to bring Gingerbread to the Desire "without compromising the HTC Sense Experience." The problems were blamed on insufficient memory, incapable of effectively running both Gingerbread and Sense concurrently.

"We're sincerely sorry for the disappointment that this news may bring to some of you," the Facebook post reads.

An HTC spokesperson in February announced that the company was planning to update its Desire, Desire HD and Desire Z handsets to Android 2.3. A separate report suggests only the newest devices will be capable of running Sense 3.0's full feature set.
