HTC Desire owners were not happy to hear that they would not be receiving the Android Gingerbread update that was promised to them. HTC announced on Facebook that the Desire doesn't have enough memory to support both HTC Sense and Gingerbread.

"Our engineering teams have been working hard for the past few months to find a way to bring Gingerbread to the HTC Desire without compromising the HTC Sense experience you’ve come to expect from our phones. However, we’re sorry to announce that we’ve been forced to accept there isn’t enough memory to allow us both to bring Gingerbread and keep the HTC Sense experience on the HTC Desire. We’re sincerely sorry for the disappointment that this news may bring to some of you.

HTC is usually consistent in their phones updates; the HTC Incredible S and Desire HD both recently received Gingerbread upgrades, but some customers still left comments saying that they would never purchase a phone from them again.
