Gingerbread coming to 4 HTC devices next quarter
For owners of the HTC Desire, this will be the second upgrade that they have been through as the handset had previously been upgraded from the Android 2.1 build that came with the phone at launch, to the current Froyo version of the OS now powering the device. The HTC Incredible S was introduced last week and is the only new model coming from HTC that will be powered at launch by Android 2.2.
The Q2 upgrade windows for the four handsets happens to dovetail with HTC's expected release of the recently introduced Desire S and Wildfire S. Both of those models will be powered by Android 2.3 right out of the box.
HTC has confirmed that these four handsets, the HTC Desire Z, Desire HD, Desire and Incredible S will be receiving Android 2.3 in Q2 (image courtesy of Mobile Crunch)

so far it looks like they've only presented a time table for the European handsets. i have no doubt the Incredible and the EVO will get Gingerbread State Side.

So if the desire Z is getting the update does that mean the G2 will be receiving it as well???

i'm sure it will and if T-Mobile will play along then it might get it sooner being that it runs a near Vanilla Build of Stock Froyo.

cool, hopefully when the Incredible S is presented in the US as the incredible 2, it will have Gingerbread....I think from all the delays and and added price rumor i will be getting the incredible s which is rumored to appear this or next month.

HTC will be on everyone's list when looking for an Android phone if they keep updating their handsets like they currently are.
Good to see then supporting older handsets!
