    Would it be worth upgrading to 2.3 gingerbread? i have a desire HD and i have 2.2 froyo and i find it excellent.
    Is it possible for me to upgrade when it is released and if i dont like it can i downgrade back to 2.2?

    you will not be able to downgrade for sure without rooting and geeky methods

    and everyone will like to update to 2.3 latest version ... who will say no here :)

    2.3 can only be an improvement on 2.2. It will have everything 2.2 has plus more. I dont see why anyone wouldnt want it?

    then really you shouldn't have purchased a progressive smart phone...there will always be change and improvements. No-one knows 100% whats on 2.3 or when its coming so the point of your post is what?

    Tech improves. OS improves. Fact. Its a phone. Your life won't end when 2.3 is released so don't be afraid of it!

    This isnt a polling question, i attached the poll to the question because i wanted peoples votes to help me answer the question. i should of posted the question with no poll if i knew people would actually give a damn

    2.3 will look like your current 2.2, this is because htc put their sense user interface on top of it.

    The 2.3 you see on the nexus S is basically android without anything on top of it.

    Because you're looking at Android with no Sense UI.

    2.3 is better. Upgrade when it comes.
