Vodafone HTC Desire Handsets Receiving Android 2.2

MobileBurn is reporting that one of their members has received the OTA Android 2.2 on his Vodafone HTC Desire. HTC rolled out the Android FroYo to unbranded handsets at the beginning of August, and Vodafone is just now pushing the update out to their handsets. The update rolled out pretty much in-line with their promise last week to begin the update process.

Here is what MobileBurn had to say about the update:

Our own Russell Jefferies has confirmed that the Android 2.2 Froyo update for Vodafone's HTC Desire is now rolling out, free of Vodafone branded applications. The update for the HTC Desire was originally said to launch "7-10 days" from August 10th, so it's just a few days late.

There was a major uproar earlier when Vodafone pushed out an update to the device that contained Vodafone bloatware instead, and Vodafone users were very angry. This latest update, according to EuroDroid, "does indeed remove the rather unwelcome Vodafone 360 apps that were installed by an update to the Desire’s 2.1 OS a few weeks earlier."

AndroidGuys commented about the distribution of the update for the HTC Desire:

Users on Vodafone should see the update soon if they haven't gotten it already. It has to feel pretty damn good that they can now officially get some Froyo goodness.

Phandroid observes (and I agree) that it is "a rare occasion when a carrier or manufacturer sticks firmly to their update plans." Let's hope Vodafone makes a practice out of it.

    I have been a <a href="http://www.bblackpad.com">blackberry playbook</a> owner for not too long. Although I am intrigued by the android and all the hype that has come with it. I will continue to follow for a while and I just may become converted to the android religion. ;0)

    Android is about to see the launch of the next version of its OS, Android Gingerbread. If you are interested, then I recommend you read up on some of the changes coming with it.
