The Froyo (Android 2.2) update for the HTC Desire smartphone is due in the next fortnight on T-Mobile.
Softpedia spotted on the T-Mobile Twitter account that the operator tweeted the following message regarding the 2.2 update: “If you follow us we put out tweets to let everyone know about update releases. It will be this month.”
So it should be rolling out in the next two weeks, apparently just awaiting finally approval from the powers-that-be up at Google HQ.
Android 2.2 offers a considerable speed boost, full Flash support and device tethering. However, its roll out has been problematic on some other networks. First Vodafone confused its customers with a false start on its Froyo update, which turned out to be a very unpopular patch that added a load of extra 360 gunk to Android 2.1.
And worse still, O2 rolled out its Android 2.2 update last week, to discover that some customers complained of it bricking their Desire. It was quickly pulled, and hasn’t been re-released yet. With any luck, matters will go more smoothly for T-Mobile Desire owners.
