Mr_Silver writes: Yesterday HTC posted the news on their Facebook page that Desire users would not get the Gingerbread update because their engineers said that it didn't have enough memory to handle the updated OS and Sense UI. Unfortunately very few people believed the reason (considering the success that Xda developers have had in doing just that) and less than 24 hours later, HTC retracted their claim and promised to provide Gingerbread for the Desire. If you don't like visiting Facebook then The Register provides the details.

However this isn't bad news as Erick Schonfeld speculates that their revenue would have increased from $200,000 to $800,000 per month thanks to the reduced visitors generating 2 to 4 times more revenue in subscription fees than the ad revenue ever did. Looks like a paywall could be a viable business case after all.
