Vodafone’s Android 2.2 Froyo Update is Coming Soon

HTC Desire owners under Vodafone have plenty to be happy about. It has just been confirmed that August 23 will see the official launch for the 2.2 Froyo update for the Android operating system on the HTC Desire.

The HTC Desire is an impressive smart phone released earlier this year. With a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7 inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen display and a 5 mega pixel camera, the device was among one of the first handsets (along with the Google Nexus One) that set the bar for all upcoming Android phones.

Of course, with the announcement of a new Android OS version, it was believed that it would only be a matter of time before it would be brought to the Desire. However, for reasons unannounced, the Froyo update did not come early and many people had to wait for the update to be made available for their specific handsets.

Problems started to arise when Vodafone failed to properly announce the Vodafone 360 service update and many people were misled into thinking that the update was for the Google Android. This lead to many unhappy surprises when people realized that they updated their Android 2.1 handsets to Android 2.1 but with 360 features. Another issue was that the update did not allow users to uninstall of remove the 360 software –which made it really frustrating for many.

Fortunately, Vodafone has a good enough head on its shoulders to realize a mistake and have offered a sufficient apology –along with the promise that the actual Android 2.2 update does come out, it will also give users the freedom of deleting the 360 service features from the OS. According to Google, the Froyo update is more than just a new set of features and bug fixes; it is also a major performance boost to the OS itself.
