HTC Desire users and fans, get ready to be excited! Three UK has made an announcement as to when we should expect the Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire.

Three responded to a question on its Twitter page, tweeting, “[it's] coming in for testing on Monday, so end of April early May is the plan.”

The same can be said for other network-branded HTC Desires in Europe (so far) of when the update will come, though some carriers are naturally faster than others in receiving updates, so those carriers will most likely have that update first. Those with unlocked Desire owners are likely to see this update before other carriers as their handsets don’t need to be approved by carriers before the update is released to the public.

This is exciting news! If only I lived in Europe…
