Three: HTC Desire FroYo update due "end of summer"

In keeping with its new era of openness, UK network Three has told its users when to expect the Android 2.2 update for branded HTC Desires bought through the network. It’s going to be quite a few weeks from now.

It’s going to be a few weeks for HTC to make it, then a bit longer for testing, then a bit longer for Google to rubber stamp it, or whatever the modern digital equivalent of the rubber stamp is. Here’s the full quote:

“Although the HTC Desire update was released for unlocked phones last week, HTC are building a specific version for Three which will take them a few weeks. Once we have this version it will be tested, approved by Google and then rolled out to customers. Although it goes without saying that we will get the update to customers ASAP, it’s likely to be towards the end of summer until we can guarantee a problem free version for our customers”

The fish is not impressed, and the fish isn’t even on Three:

So, we’ve got “September” for 2.2 on T-Mobile Desires, “Four weeks” for Orange Desires and an unspecified amount of time for the update to hit Vodafone. Link via Techradar.

      It’s not true. There’s a new version of 2.1 out for the Wildfire, which seems to introduce some exotic and exciting new bugs.

      • Yeah i upgraded my wildfire last night from orange uk to 2.1. i haven’t run into any of the bugs yet. I’ll be very surprised if orange gets 2.2 to wildfire anytime soon.

      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…
