What you see above in my terrible, late-night, Photoshop’d image is how the HTC Desire from Telstra should look like once it receives the Android 2.3.x “Gingerbread” update in August. Telstra and HTC are going to remove Sense UI from the original Desire in order for Gingerbread to work properly, due to the low amount of RAM on the device. Because this is such a dramatic change from Sense UI to stock Android, surely Telstra are going to give people the choice of updating, as the user experience will change substantially.
Either way, we’re going to clarify with HTC just how much of the software is going to change and whether parts of HTC’s Sense UI will be made to work with stock Android.[Via Engadget]
