Now the HTC Desire IS getting Gingerbread after all

Now the HTC Desire IS getting Gingerbread after allWe're not quite sure what to make of this one. Just yesterday, we – along with the rest of the mobile tech press – reported that the much-loved HTC Desire won't be getting an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Just 24 hours later, however, and it's all change: HTC reckons the Desire will be getting its helping of Gingerbread after all.

We were initially told that a lack of memory had ruled the Desire out from receiving the Gingerbread update – apparently there isn't space for both Gingerbread and HTC's Sense interface on board.

Or at least, there wasn't yesterday, as 24 hours later the situation seems to have magically resolved itself. “Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire,” HTC revealed, also via Facebook.

So what's the deal? We had no idea ourselves, but fortunately HTC has cleared the matter up. “To resolve Desire’s memory issue and enable the upgrade to Gingerbread, we will cut select apps from the release. Look for status updates starting next week. We apologize for any confusion."

Confusion? What confusion...
