The awaited Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update is set to arrive at the end of this month.

The Taiwan-based smartphone maker previously denied the update and then again announced it, and now has finally revealed that the Gingerbread update will be available by the end of this month.

The company, however, said that there will be some cutbacks made to the Sense UI to fit it on the Desire. The company has made the announcement via its Facebook page.

HTC added that the device has been successfully tested and that the company will be able to roll out the update by the end of July.
No exact date, however, has been released, according to a GSM Arena report.

The 3.7-inch Desire, currently, runs on Android 2.1 (Éclair), and is upgradable to version 2.2. The device has a built-in 5MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash camera and is powered by a 1 GHz Scorpion processor, Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset.
