HTC Desire Android 2.2 update delayed on Orange

The Froyo upgrade for HTC Desire owners on Orange has been delayed, the carrier has confirmed via its Twitter feed.

The latest version of Google’s operating system had been due to arrive on the handsets by mid-September.

However, Orange’s Connor Maples has revealed that HTC had experienced “issues with the update” that mean that owners will be waiting for a while longer.

However, the problems are now resolved and, pending final partner approval, the rollout ought to begin imminently, he added.

He Tweeted: "Apols for the delay guys. We've been told to expect it shortly – think days rather than weeks!"

The latest compatibility problems with updating Android phones come after O2 this week abandoned an upgrade for the Desire and Dell Streak which reportedly temporarily rendered the handsets inoperable.

At the root of the delays are ensuring that the new iterations are compatible with manufacturers’ custom skins and carrier’s services.
