Yeah! Its good news for HTC Desire S owners. Now you can update your phone to Android 2.3.5 software version 2.15.720.3 with loads of amazing feature and updates that makes it more elegant, comfortable and more user friendly. It was expected that with Android 2.3.5 users will get a revamped version of Gmail and Android Market that would provide you access to enhanced notification and priority sync. Gmail got revamped before this release and other features came out to be more than as expected.
The new update started in Europe around a week ago and today it came to India. Now lets move on to whats new in Android 2.3.5 for HTC users and how to get it.
As usual the simplest way to get the new firmware version is - go to MENU> Settings> About phone>Check Updates. But before doing that it very much recommended that you backup important files from your phone. Remove the SD card and don’t forget to backup your contacts too. Usually nothing is gonna happen to your files and contacts but this is safety measure. Put your device on charge, connect to your Wi-Fi network (don’t use data networks) and search for updates.
