Vodafone U.K. Rolling Out Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update For Desire HD

It was just yesterday that we reported about HTC rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Desire HD and the Incredible S.

However, the update was being rolled out only for the unbranded Desire HD and Incredible S handsets, in Europe.


Today, Vodafone U.K. has announced that they have started rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Vodafone branded Desire HD, in the U.K.

Here is the update change-log via Android Community :

  • Enhancements to the user interface (simpler and slicker)
  • New Android Keyboard,   with easy copy/paste feature
  • Improved Power Management
  • Internet Calling support
  • Multiple Camera Management (front and back)

Ironically, the Desire HD lacks a front camera, so I wonder what the Multiple Camera Management’ feature will do.

The update is an OTA one, and users are recommended to use Wi-Fi to download the update. The update will be rolled out to all Desire HD owners within the next few weeks.

Hopefully, other carries will follow Vodafone U.K. steps, and release the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Desire HD.
