Google tweaks the Nexus S Super AMOLED screen with a firmware update. Will Microsoft do this for the Omnia 7 and Focus?

Google has recently tweaked the Nexus S Super AMOLED’s color temperature to be more natural via its Android 2.3.3 OTA firmware update:

“With your new OTA complete, you may notice a slight difference in the way colors are displayed on your Nexus S. For Nexus S, we have adjusted the color temperature settings to more accurately reflect darker colors at all brightness levels. The Gingerbread UI being darker, we found that the colors were not as accurate when the device was being used at lower brightness levels. For example, some users reported that the initial color temperature was too high leading to some darker greys having a reddish tone; with the new color temperature this is no longer the case.”

It would definitely suck if the HTC Desire didn’t get it given the fact that it’s essentially an HTC branded Google Nexus One. On the other hand I would be surprised if the upcoming HTC Desire S didn’t receive the update either. An official statement from HTC is definitely need to clarify the situation (like a press release..).
