    I am getting the HTC Desire HD tomorrow after accidentally breaking my Xperia X10, and just wondered what Android Version it currently has.

    Also, what updates are planned for the future?

    Thanks

    With the DHD a stock Android 2.2 follows, with various HTC and HTC sense apps.

    There is a scheduled update to Android 2.3/2.4 (Gingerbread) at the end of Q2, but when exactly there is no word on yet.

    As for updates, there was a OTA update to 2.2 to 2.2.1, but that was pulled very fast (basically a few hours after release) as they found many serious bugs. It did have great upgrades for the OS itself, but many problems surfaced, like the "sms disappearing" bug. Thus there is no scheduled update for the DHD before 2.3/2.4 comes out from HTC :)

    Hope that helped :)

    I'm confused. So it isn't on 2.2 due to bugs? or was that just for OTA?

    The 2.2 is stable. It was the OTA 2.2.1 that was an utter disaster. Luckily when the update came, I didn't have a data plan yet :p. So I didn't end up in the "bug" boat :D
