Desire Z All Set For Gingerbread “In The Coming Weeks” Says HTC

We can hear them now, all of the Desire Z owners saying “Hellz yeah!”  Yeah, we feel ya.  HTC has recently sent out acknowledgements that its European version of the G2, is near the end of its testing phase and the Gingerbread 2.3 update should be arriving on devices “in the coming weeks”.  Better than nothing right?

Thanks to everyone whos been patiently waiting for the Gingerbread update for Desire Z. We are in the last stages of testing and plan to start rolling out the update over the air in the coming weeks. It may take a little time to reach all of you across every network but it should have reached everyone by the end of the month.
So there you have it Z owners.  HTC has not left your device in the dust, they were just working on other things.  Feel free to sound off in the comments if you want.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Finally… I had started thinking that the z was a bastard son HTC had disowned. I was all set to switch to cm7 next week. But i still might coz I also have the feeling HTC doesn’t care much for it’s customers in the middle east and the update can take ages to reach here, if it does at all…
