And thus, it begins. Engadget has official word from HTC that unlocked European Desires will be getting an over-the-air (OTA) update to Android 2.2 ("Froyo") this weekend. This comes hot off the heels of Sprint announcing that the Evo will see Froyo early next week, so it surely looks like HTC has gotten Sense working just fine on their current line of high-end phones. Users should be automatically notified that there is an update available.
HTC is going all out, promising several features not in stock 2.2:
- 720p video recording
- iTunes syncing via HTC's Sync software (what?!?)
- The "AppShare" widget that came on the Wildfire
- Smart CallerID
In addition, HTC is saying that users with carrier-locked Desires will see the update in "several weeks' time." Just as a friendly reminder, they also told users that the update will not delete any existing user data, which is always a great thing.
It looks like there is going to be a ton of 2.2 update news coming in the next few weeks for HTC phones, so if you aren't a Desire or Evo owner, keep your eyes peeled. [Engadget]
