HTC “will definitely have” Android 2.3 Gingerbread phones

No surprise here, really, but it’s good to see it confirmed: HTC has recently told Tech Radar that it “will definitely have” Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a number of its handsets.

Most likely, some existing Android 2.2 Froyo smartphones are included here, alongside unannounced devices – like the HTC Knight / Evo Shift 4G.

It’s highly probable that handsets like the Desire HD, Desire Z, Droid Incredible, EVO 4G, and even the first Desire, will get Gingerbread eventually. HTC didn’t provide any specific details on Gingerbread updates, though.

Earlier today, Google’s Dan Morrill tweeted that Gingerbread’s hardware needs are similar to Froyo’s, so, theoretically, any Froyo smartphone can be updated to Gingerbread. Of course, in the end, it’s up to phone makers to roll-out updates.
