HTC Desire Android 2.2 Froyo update officially coming out this Weekend

That’s right folks, the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the HTC Desire is going to officially be released this weekend according and 720P video recording is now finally on board (remember I was the first to report about this back in february)! The update will also include the app sharing widget that was introduced on the HTC Wildfire plus a couple of other features and improvements. Read the full statement after the break:

“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.”

    Rabyburns,
    The update hasn’t been rollout/Push OTA yet. It is scheduled to start tomorrow but it will depend on your location. BTW this update is only going to be pushed out to unbranded/unlocked Desires so if you have a carrier branded device you will have to wait untill your carrier’s rollout (could take several weeks) unless your Root you phone.

    I have it on t-mobile but use a orange sim so im assuming its a unlocked desire I have, i felt into that trap with my old hero stuck on orange (which is still waiting on 2.1)

    I’m looking forward to the HD video recording and whatever else is on it..

    some good news for a otherwise boring weekend :-)
