HTC Desire HD and Incredible S are updated to Sense 3.0, Wildfire S gets fancy lockscreen
Relegated to the mid-range market, seeing that their specs no longer deem them to be high-end smartphones, both the HTC Desire HD and Incredible S are getting some much-needed love in the form of software updates bringing along the usefulness of HTC Sense 3.0.

Yes folks, it’s getting the snazzy update that brings along all of the wonderful set of features that are on full display with devices like the HTC Sensation 4G and EVO 3D. At the same time, they’re being moved up to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. Although they’re no longer considered the cutting edge devices they were once perceived to be when they first launched, the update should naturally appease many people.

Meanwhile, the lonely HTC Wildfire S is apparently getting an update to, that brings it up to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread as well – albeit, it’s still stuck on the HTC Sense 2.1 experience. Now don’t get all fussy, especially when it might not be getting the same amount of love, but it’s actually being blessed with the Sense 3.0 lockscreen. So at least it’s getting that consolation!

As usual, if you haven’t seen that notification popping up on your handset, you can simply initiate the process yourself manually by checking for updates under the Android settings menu.
