HTC has again changed its mind about its most popular device – the HTC Desire – gaining access to Google’s latest mobile operating system.
Earlier this week, the Taiwanese mobile manufacturer said the Desire did not have substantial memory to take on Android 2.3 – codenamed Gingerbread – so users would be missing out.
However, following hundreds of complaints on its Facebook page, HTC today changed its tune and said users of the smartphone would get the update, at the sacrifice of a number of applications.
“To resolve Desire's memory issue and enable the upgrade to Gingerbread, we will cut select apps from the release,” read a statement from HTC.
It has yet to say which of the built-in applications it will drop but the mobile manufacturer confirmed more updates would be coming at the beginning of next week.
