I am so disappointed, this is so annoying. Well, time for upgrade. The internal memory is a problem of all HTC phones, is it a signal to look for alternative like Samsung or Motorola...

This information from engadget might make you happy.

There is the link, the HTC Desire will get gingerbread.

Engadget is a much better source of mobile information than this.

Yeah, HTC got tonnes of e-mails from Desire users and simply change their mind... just to keep us happy, but I think this is the last upgrade for this device, bit annoying but what can we do...

I hope it dose get gingerbread as my other half has the Desire HD and it has made it a more stable phone but I have been saying for years that this is Androids biggest problem with there OS. Android in a way is very much like Windows Mobile is that they give every one the freedom do do what they want to the os and dont have a minimum spec sheet and because of this it causes problem like this and also if there is a phone under specked the OS will lag and cause problems and that is what held Windows Mobile back. It only really was usable when phones like Diamond 2 and HD1 HD2 came out but by then the OS was getting too old.

I have heard that they are looking at making the Phone and tablet OS the same OS and that they will have minimum spic's and push the update out abit like Windows Phone now and if android do this then it will help everyone get the updates and help the developers apps work on all devices.
