HTC have today confirmed that the Desire range of Android smartphones will receive the Android 2.3 gingerbread update, but it could take a while.
Speaking with CNET UK, a HTC representative revealed that the Gingerbread update would be released a few months after the launch of the HTC Desire S handset.
According to HTC, the current Desire range won’t receive the 2.3 update all at the same time, with the Desire HD and Desire Z more likely to receive the update first followed later by the original Desire handset.

The HTC Desire S is currently scheduled for release in the UK in late May or June, so according to this new information, current Desire owners could see the 2.3 update roll-out in August or September.
The Desire HD and Desire Z are currently up to Android 2.2 Froyo, with the origianl Desire handset shipping with Android 2.1 Eclair, although many UK networks have already pushed out updates for Android 2.2 Froyo.
