HTC Announces Quality Assurance Testing on Facebook

The official HTC Facebook page has revealed about its quality assurance testing for the Gingerbread firmware that has been earmarked for a roll out on the popular Desire smartphone.

“There isn’t enough memory to allow us both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire,” HTC was forced into a U-turn by a strong consumer reaction, less than 24 hours later releasing a statement that read: "Contrary to what we said earlier, we are going to bring Gingerbread to HTC Desire”, stated HTC on its Facebook posting.

The HTC Desire is a decent handset with an affordable price range, under £300, in competition with its strongest rival, Samsung Galaxy with almost similar price and newly developed duel core superphones, with slighter price difference.

The company has originally announced that it has no plans to bring Gingerbread to the Desire citing hardware restrictions, but it had to back down just a few hours later after an uproar and boycott threats from its own customers.

The recent announcement is believed to have an influence from the fact that the HTC Sense UI and the mobile platform wouldn't both fit on the 512MB onboard memory.
