HTC Desire, Desire HD, Desire Z, and Incredible S getting Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update in Q2

In a statement to blog SlashGear, HTC let it be known that it intends to bring four European handsets up to Gingerbread (Android 2.3) in Q2 of this year. Three Desire models — the Desire, Desire HD, and Desire Z — along with the recently announced Incredible S will be getting Google’s latest and greatest mobile code. It’s nice to see HTC pushing out updates to some new, and more importantly old, handsets. Here is the company’s official statement.

“We are excited to announce that the Desire HD, Desire Z, Desire and Incredible S will receive the Gingerbread update in Q2.”

Bell Mobility launching HTC Desire Z November 3

Seems to be a good day for Canadian news, no? On the heels of our BlackBerry Bold 9780 scoop, we’ve obtained another Bell memo that indicates the Canadian wireless carrier will release HTC’s Desire Z on November 3. The phone will have the ability to operate on Bell’s HSPA+ network and sport a 3.7-inch touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.2, Sense 2.0, and an 800MHz processor. Subsidized pricing was not listed in the memo; the device will retail for $499.99 off-contract. Could this be one of the HSPA+ devices that Bell plans on charging an extra $10 for? Time will tell.

Thanks, Brendan!
