All first gen HTC Desires to receive Gingerbread in Q2 or Q3 of this year
There is a good and a bad news for the loyal HTC Desire, Desire HD and Desire Z owners. The good one is that all these first generation Desire phones are to receive Gingerbread, while the bad one is this is not going to happen very soon.

According to the guys at CNET, who cite an "HTC representative", these three first-gen Desire phones will receive Android 2.3 between a month and two after the release of the HTC Desire S.

If we take into account that the HTC Desire S is scheduled for an April 18 release, this would mean that the owners of the three first-gen Desire handsets will receive Gingerbread sometime in late Q2 or early Q3 of 2011.

However, it's worth noting that the folks at CNET claim this is the timeframe when HTC will make the update available to the carriers of these three handsets, and if this is the case, it's far from certain when exactly the end customers will taste the Ginger flavour on their first generation HTC Desires.
