HTC confirms Desire HD Android 2.3 update?

In a roundabout way

TechRadar rating:

4.5 stars

We'd have to colour ourselves a little disappointed with the new HTC Desire HD - as a standalone phone it's excellent, but it has too many niggles to be considered the best in HTC's range.


Super-slick UI; Great browsing experience; Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound; Decent e-book reader; Very easy to connect contacts


Poor battery life; No OLED screen; Suspect build quality; Video player needs overhauling; connectivity still has bugs

TechRadar contacted HTC earlier today about the recently announced Android 2.3 update and whether or not it will be coming to its flagship phone: the HTC Desire HD.

Although HTC didn't namecheck the phone, it did confirm that a number of its handsets will be given the update.

Be excited

In a statement, a spokesperson for HTC explained: "We are excited about the OS update coming for Android, and while HTC will definitely have some phones running this OS, we do not have a specific timeframe for new phones or updates at this time. Please stay tuned for more details."

While "some phones" is as flimsy an answer you are likely to get, it does confirm that the update will be coming to handsets already in existence.

At the moment, the HTC Desire HD is the flagship phone from the Taiwanese company so we're pinning our bets on this.

However, the Desire Z and Desire will probably get some Android 2.3 loving, too.
