Confirmed – Android 2.2 coming to the Desire this weekend

Confirmed   Android 2.2 coming to the Desire this weekend Well, it seems that the earlier predictions were right. According to a statement from HTC, the Desire will be getting Android 2.2 in Europe from this weekend. HD video recording, the App Share facility and iTunes syncing are just some of the highlights. HTC tell us..

“The Android 2.2 (FroYo) update for HTC Desire will start rolling out across Europe this weekend. As well as including the complete set of Android 2.2 features, the update will contain a few special additions of our own through the latest iteration of HTC Sense. The update will provide 720p video capture, HTC’s App Share widget, as well as our enhanced HTC Caller ID, and improved multi-language keyboard. Also, though the update, HTC Sync will allow HTC Desire users to sync their music with iTunes.

HTC Desire users will be notified that the over-the-air update is available to download when their phone automatically checks for software updates. The update won’t delete any of the phone’s content. However, due to the size of the update, we would advise using a WiFi connection to download it wherever possible to avoid additional data charges.

This update will initially roll out to unlocked HTC Desire handsets. Operator specific versions of the update are undergoing testing and we expect to make them available in several weeks’ time.”

So network-branded versions will have a slight wait, but for everyone else you’ll be getting your FroYo fix possibly tomorrow.
