HTC Desire on Vodafone to receive Froyo update on Monday

The HTC Desire started receiving its OTA Froyo update at the beginning of August, but users on Vodafone have been growing impatient. Word has come from the mobile carrier that the update will start to roll out on Monday, August 23.

The wait was longer, according to the Vodafone rep, because:

Our priority has been to make sure that the software does what we said it will do. This meant testing took a little longer than anticipated.

The rep also said that the update will be a gradual roll-out over two weeks, so if you don't get yours on Monday, look for it in the coming days. The more phones updating to Froyo the better, so this is great news; even if it did take a little longer. [Vodafone forums] Thanks, D.
