HTC Desire Wont See Android Gingerbread

HTC have today announced on their UK Facebook page that all attempts to get the HTC Desire running Android Gingerbread 2.3 have failed.

The company blamed the lack of memory on the 15 month old device and, that with just 512MB RAM available this just wasn't enough "without compromising the HTC Sense experience".

The Nexus One runs an identical amount of memory and has been running Gingerbread 2.3 since the start of the year but the requirements HTC Sense on the Desire S make it impossible to run both according to HTC.  The HTC Facebook page has been unsurprisingly overrun with comments from dissatisfied customers.

HTC Facebook Post: 

"Our engineering teams have been working hard for the past few months to find a way to bring Gingerbread to the HTC Desire without compromising the HTC Sense experience you’ve come to expect from our phones. However, we’re sorry to announce that we’ve been forced to accept there isn’t enough memory to allow us both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire. We’re sincerely sorry for the disappointment that this news may bring to some of you"
