HTC Desire HD to get Android 2.3 Gingerbread in April. Motorola Defy will taste Froyo the same month

Last month, we reported that the HTC Desire HD would be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread sometime in the second quarter of the year. Well, now we know when exactly this will happen:

According to SFR (the second largest French mobile carrier), the Desire HD should get Gingerbread in the first half of April. Of course, this will happen in France, but I assume the upgrade will be rolled-out in other countries at about the same time.

As you can see in the image above, another Android smartphone that should be upgraded in April (in the second half of the month) is the rugged Motorola Defy. Unlike the Desire HD, the Defy will only  get Android 2.2 Froyo, not Gingerbread. But that’s still good news, right?

    Moto Defy in Mexico/Latin America was to get Android 2.2 but there was no rollout. Is April, then for sure … oh yeah, Florin, you are right .. I think 2.2 is not just good but great news for Defy.

    There are a number of custom firmwares for the Defy that give it 2.2. They are based on the Chinese version, I believe. This means that unless we see some official version of 2.3 for the Defy, it will likely never happen.

    The 2.2 hacks on Defy seem to function well. It’ll will be restricted to an upgrade to 2.2 .. expecting 2.3 for this model will be wishful thinking. Well .. not till the fat lady sings ‘2.2 for Moto Defy’ 🙂
