HTC confirms Android 2.3 will be coming to “some phones”

HTC confirms Android 2.3 will be coming to “some phones”

When it comes to rolling out Android updates, HTC certainly has a better track record than most other manufacturers out there. Over the past year, we’ve seen HTC push out Android 2.1 to the majority of their first generation Android handsets and the majority of their second generation of Android phones have been updated to Android 2.2. While it’s nice to have a good track record, we’re pretty sure most you are are wondering if HTC phone you currently own will be getting a taste of Gingerbread (Android 2.3). HTC has not released any specifics quite yet, but did state: “We are excited about the OS update coming for Android, and while HTC will definitely have some phones running this OS, we do not have a specific timeframe for new phones or updates at this time. Please stay tuned for more details.”

Our best guess if that HTC will be rolling out Android 2.3 to their newest phones first. We’re nearly 100% confident that the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z will be the first to receive the update, followed by the T-Mobile G2, myTouch 4G, EVO 4G, DROID Incredible, and the original Desire. While Google has no specific hardware requirements for Android 2.3, we would certainly not be surprised if HTC decides not up update any phone that does not have 1GHz or second generation processor.

For now, all we have are our educated guesses. Let’s hope HTC decides to give us a few more details on what the Android 2.3 upgrade strategy will be in the next few weeks.

    Let’s go HTC! I know it take a while to roll out these updates, but HTC has always been the fastest. I’m hoping my G2 will get Android 2.3 before the end of January.

    MyTouch 4G and remove HTC sense while your at it; so it takes a whole year for new smartphones just reach the speeds of a one year old MyTouch 4G running stock 2.3 with no customized UI!

    Any update on the update yet? When will it be released in the UK?

  • William N

    I got a myTouch 4G on 12/20/10 running ver. 2.2.1. Its ActiveSync doesn’t work with MS Exchange 2010 SP1. I had to resort to Touchdown by NitroDesk in order to interact with my work email on my device. A coworker has the HTC Incredible running v2.2 and it syncs just fine. What did HTC change in v2.2.1 that broke this functionality? Does Gingerbread fix this ActiveSync issue? And when will it be released for my device?

  • William N

    By the way, I tried several times to post here on my myTouch 4G (running v.2.2.1) and each time yielded the same result, an incorrect CAPTCHA code. I finally successfully posted here using my Windows 7 laptop. What’s causing this difficulty on my smartphone?

  • Legend

    Go HTC! We want the upgrade! Seems awesome. I can wait to upgrade my HTC Legend !!!

  • William N

    So I guess if I were to buy a more recent Android device, it would be running v2.3 or later. Right? What’s the hold up on pushing an OTA update to get us poor saps beyond v2.2.x? For my next smartphone, I’ll ensure that it 100% syncs with my employer’s e-mail within 30 days of purchase otherwise I’ll return it. Come on Google! Get it together!

  • HTC Inspire

    Wait…What about HTC Inspire 4G???
