For those of us in the UK and in possession of either the HTC Desire HD or Incredible S you should be seeing the update to Gingerbread or Android 2.3. UK Vodafone customers have had the update for little over a week now, beating un-branded / locked versions to the party which is for a network locked phone unusual.

However it's here and to check if you haven't had the notification go to menu>settings>about phone>system software updates and tapo the check now box. You're going to be downloading just over 100 MB of data so a WI-FI connection will be of real benefit as will a decent amount of juice in your battery, at least half full or empty depending on which way you are inclined.
