Android 2.2 Desire fulfilled by Vodafone


Vodafone has started rolling out the Android 2.2 mobile operating system update to its HTC Desire customers.

The rollout started yesterday and users of the device should expect to get their hands on the update over the next week.

Many Vodafone customers thought they would have the long awaited update already available on the Google Nexus One earlier this month but the software turned out to be an installation of Vodafone 360 services, angering many users.

However, Vodafone claimed these services could be removed when the official 2.2 update came along.

Android 2.2 codenamed Froyo will fully support Flash, integrate with Microsoft Exchange and enable a handset to become a portable WiFi hotspot.
