HTC Desire Android 2.2 rollout starts on Orange

Orange has started rolling out Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, to HTC Desire owners, bringing a host of new features to the handset.

The over the air update started last night and takes up around 86Mb of space on devices, according to a Tweet from OrangeHelpers.

The carrier’s customer support Twitter account also advised that the rollout will be gradual, meaning that some Desire owners may have to wait longer for the update than others.

Orange customers have yet to report problems with the service, apparently endorsing Orange’s decision to delay the rollout after HTC encountered teething problems.

Froyo brings a slew of enhancements to Android mobiles, including better battery life and slicker social networking with comments on Facebook updates.

Also new is 720p HD video recording, Flash 10.1 support in the browser, plus some new HTC apps such as a custom calculator and a tethering application that enables users to share the handset’s 3G signal with other web enabled devices.
