Vodafone Desire Android update launching imminently

Vodafone will launch an update for HTC Desire owners to replace Android 2.1 with the latest 2.2 edition of Google's platform in a matter of days, it has emerged.

The carrier caused a stir earlier this month when it distributed an update to Desire owners which contained nothing but irremovable own-brand services instead of the much anticipated Android 2.2 upgrade.

After it became apparent that this update altered or damaged users' settings and web browsing experience, Vodafone relented and now plans to remove all the extras as part of the Desire's Android 2.2 update.

Vodafone originally announced that customers will have the option to download and install the 360 services at a later date, but it has not settled on an official launch.

A spokesperson for the network told The Inquirer: "We're still developing and testing the Android 2.2 update for HTC Desire and working on its approval with Google and HTC.

"The start of the roll out is days, not weeks, away and as soon as the date is finalised we'll let you know."
