Desire range to receive Gingerbread update very soon indeed

Those lovely people at Three have stated that the updated Android 2.3 software (Gingerbread) will be available soon enough. It’s coming in for testing today and..

“End of April early May is the plan.”

Other sites have gone on to state that this will cover the entire Desire range, including the Desire HD, Desire Z and the original HTC Desire. The new update enables NFC (Near Field Communications) and adds speed and UI tweaks.

    “The new update enables NFC” – presumably NOT for these devices? Doesn’t this require specific hardware?

    Excellent news. Surely NFC requires a chip?

  • Apparently a NFC could be built in a SIM card….so theres hope yet !!!!
