HTC will serve some cold Froyo to help European HTC Desire owners fight the heat wave sweeping across Europe. The update will start rolling out this weekend and will bring 720p video recording, iTunes syncing and a couple of other treats as well.
You heard that right, the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the HTC Desire will enable the 720p video recording rumored from the very beginning. The HTC Sync software will also enable iTunes syncing.
The updated software for the Euro HTC Desire will of course keep the signature HTC Sense UI and bring the App Share widget and HTC's enhanced Caller ID and a better multi-language keyboard.
The update process is simple - users will be notified when the update is available and the update won't wipe the data from the phone. HTC suggests you hook up your Desire to a Wi-Fi network before you download the update to avoid data charges.
Unlocked HTC Desire phones will be the first to score Froyo, but owners of carrier-branded phones should be getting the update "in several weeks time".
720p on cca 18fps!!?? Realy nice 'HD' video recording, i'm dissapointed... :/
What about other countries. Is it only in UK update is available. My desire is not locked to any operator, thats why am wondering. IS there anyone from other european country here that updated his desire to 2.2
I am not sure of the rollout plans in Bulgaria, but I know they are doing it in stages here in the UK. Only unlocked phones will get it first. Then in a couple of weeks, the providers will release their own specific updates.
