I think there has been some confusion about HTC's plans for the Desire, as we've received several emails asking when an OTA may become available.

    I pinged HTC on Twitter to get an answer to that question and, to put it simply, there isn't going to be one.

    • Samsung Stratosphere: Previously rumored as Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Stratosphere is listed as a "4G Smartphone w/Android 2.3." While it isn't exactly confirmation, there is a chance that this rumor was spot-on.
