    for some reason google detects that I have an HTC 'desire' not a HTC 'inspire'
    but only when it comes time to download and install chrome
    this is link to the chrome I'm trying to install:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.android.chrome&hl=en
    See attachments, first it detects I have the att htc inspire 4g which is right but has it as android 2.2 not 2.3.5, then it comes back and says I'm incompatible with an htc desire
    If something was really messed up I could see if the phone is never recognized, but the playstore works, I was able with a lot of effort to get chromecast setup, etc
    I tried to manually select my phone, its there, I select it, but then the installer still reverts back to thinking its a desire!
    I did post this same question embedded in another thread in the htc forum but no replies there.
    with since android and chrome are both google, I would think it should be able to detect the o/s correctly?????????????
    is there something I can do? like upgrade my android to 2.4?

    Have you tried installing it from the phone rather than a desktop browser?
