Orange: HTC Desire FroYo update should take "around four weeks"

So now the race is on for the branded networks to ship the HTC Desire Android 2.2 update to its customers – and Orange has just spoken up on the issue.

Declining to give us an actual date, which is entirely understandable given the online PAIN caused by slipping timelines, an Orange PR spokesman today said it “normally” takes “around four weeks” from HTC finalising the OS update to Orange getting its tweaked version ready to go.

So, four weeks it is, then, Orange Desire users. That’s not bad, and at least it’s substantially quicker than the HTC Hero update, right?

    I emailed Orange on the 2nd of August and had a phone call this morning saying that the department dealing with the release were briefed yesterday and a date for release will be set in the next 2 weeks.
    Lets hope they keep there word !!!!!!

  4. Lets hope that Orange don’t trash it with too much of their uninstallable bloatware this time.

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
