HTC Desire X hands-on

HTC is staying rather casual this year at IFA 2012, but their low profile did manage to bring one new smartphone to our hands. Meet the recently announced HTC Desire X. It's more compact than the larger HTC One X and One S, while having a bump in size and specs over the budget-aimed One V. HTC is aiming for the middle of the road mass market with this device so lets take a peek.

HTC announces a trio of Desire phones for China

Don't call them Ones: HTC has just announces three brand new and hitherto unknown phones for the Chinese market.. The three devices broadly follow the HTC One series in styling and featureset, but are technically members of the Desire family. The HTC Desire VT T328t, VC T328d, and V T328w (catchy, huh?) all have similar specs and features, but will be launched seperately on China's three largest cellular providers. Refreshingly, all three will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0 at launch.

HTC Desire Android 2.3 Gingerbread update released

HTC has released the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire, though because of limitations of the ROM thanks to HTC's efforts to squeeze it down to suit the storage space the smartphone has, it's being released via the company's developer site rather than as an OTA upgrade. Various HTC apps have been removed - though will be available to download separately - and the official Facebook app has been stripped out and must be re-installed via the Android Market. In addition, all customizations to the ROM - including anything carriers may have installed or mandated - have been removed, and in fact even the wallpapers (bar the default) have been taken out to save space. HTC warns that some people may lose SMS/MMS functionality after upgrading too, though it sounds like that's because this is a generic ROM and may not have the carrier settings required; those should be readily added back in afterwards. Still, unlike the streamlined OTA process, installing Gingerbread on the Desire will wipe out all of your existing customizations, messages, emails, apps and other content, so HTC is recommending it for "expert users" and development purposes only. You're also out of luck if you have a Desire from Germany (Deutsch Telekom), North America, South America, South Korea, and Japan, where "concerns raised from our partners" have led to HTC not allowing the update in those regions.

HTC Desire Gingerbread update hits quality testing

HTC has announced that its Android 2.3 Gingerbread build for the HTC Desire is now going into quality assurance testing, one step closer to being released for owners of the former flagship smartphone. According to the company's Facebook page, the Desire Gingerbread ROM will be put through its paces from this week, though there's still no firm date for its release to users.
"Hi all- We're excited to share that we are testing our build of Gingerbread for HTC Desire and will start doing quality assurance for it this week. When we have an update on availability we'll post another announcement. Thanks for your support!" HTC
The news follows the will-they-won't-they announcements over the past few months regarding an official update for the Desire. Having initially promised Android would be released for the handset, HTC then shocked owners by confessing that they would be unable to do so, citing an inability to preserve the full Sense experience. After massive outcry, HTC changed its stance overnight and confirmed that it would indeed be pushing out a Gingerbread build. It was later revealed that the ROM would have a pared-down suite of apps, in order to satisfy the limitations of the Desire's memory. There's currently no telling which apps won't make the grade.
