The HTC Desire will possibly be next in line to get the bump to Android 2.2 Froyo, more precisely June 23rd is the rumored date for the upgrade. After a weekend of Froyo updates being pushed out by Google for the Nexus One, it’s highly possibly that the Desire will be the 2nd already released Android device to get a taste of Froyo. The Desire is very close in relation to the Nexus One, in regards to specs and hardware, so it kinda makes sense that it could be next in line to get a Froyo upgrade.
We have to take all this with a grain of salt. The news has come from a HTC customer service rep, which in the past, they have been notoriously unreliable on update timeframes. The rep let the date slip after being questioned by a new HTC Desire owner that was wondering why his new $500+ handset could not install apps to the SD card (A2SD). The rep told him that this feature is not available on his device, due to the current firmware. But it gets interesting when the rep goes onto say, “But you never heard this from me…. A new update is coming the 23rd of June and you will be able to put some apps on to the micro sd card.”
Who knows what to believe when it comes to Android update rumors, but with June going to be a very eventful month, it makes sense that Google wants to keep everything fresh. June is usually iPhone time, so they might want to take some of the spotlight off Apple. We just have to wait and see.
