Unfortunately, this update will not run Android 2.3 Desire HD Gingerbread, the recently released new version of the mobile operating system. However, it will take the HD Desire of Android 2.2 Android came with 2.2.1.
The update is not that bad though. From what we’ve heard it brings a few tweaks and a bug fix for the current Froyo that will run HD. The show is supposedly enhanced by a few notches. It is an Over The Air Update weighs 40MB. It will update the Desire HD software version 1.72.405.3 and the Android version to 2.2.1, the latest available Froyo. Apart from fixing several bugs, reported HD is the desire to run a bit faster overall after the update.
The update is not too large at 40 MB and the software of the handset is set to 1.72.405.3 with Froyo running 2.2.1. The Desire HD seems to run a little faster after the update. In fact, the camera looks to have the most of this update and the HD recording looks improved.
For now there is no word from HTC to determine when the update will actually come to Gingerbread. Looking at the custom stuff they have, such as Sense and other UI goodies, it may take a while for everything to do with the new Android OS.
