HTC Desire HD gets an update that isn’t Android 2.3 Gingerbread
HTC has started rolling out an over-the-air software update for its international flagship Android device at the moment, the HTC Desire HD.
This update sadly will not make the Desire HD run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the newly-released latest version of the mobile operating system. It will, however, take the Desire HD from the Android 2.2 it shipped with to Android 2.2.1.
The update is about 40 MB in size. It features bug fixes and various enhancements and improvements, including an update for the camera software, that now makes the camera app much faster. HD recording has been improved as well.
Anecdotal evidence also indicates that the phone seems to run a bit faster generally after this update is performed.
