HTC Desire Android 2.3 Gingerbread update might be gimped

Remember the hoo-ha surrounding the HTC Desire with its Android 2.3 Gingerbread

update being pulled originally, only to be reinstated after much uproar from Desire owners online?

Well, it seems as though the good times will not last long, since the latest developments point otherwise

with HTC’s Facebook page touting that they will leave out select applications from the HTC Desire so in the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update.

The method behind this madness is the relatively limited amount of memory on the smartphone,

which is why HTC has decided to cut corners.
