The update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the HTC Desire HD sure is taking a while, but its spread throughout the world seems like it’s finally picking up some speed. Just yesterday we found out that the update is headed to Desire HD handsets sold by Telus in Canada.
The update has started in the UK on May 16 allegedly, albeit (of course) only for handsets bought unlocked and unbranded. It seems that now the time has finally come for the mobile network operators to push this update to those phones that were bought from them, locked and branded and whatnot.
According to Eurodroid, Orange in the UK has already started rolling out the Gingerbread update for the Desire HD. There’s no official announcement or confirmation as of yet, so this may just be a false alarm. After all, it wouldn’t be the first such thing to happen to the Gingerbread update for the Desire HD in the UK.
Still, it probably won’t hurt to do a manual check for updates yet again if you own an Orange-sold Desire HD, especially if you haven’t checked in a while. Who knows, a nice surprise may just be waiting for you.
