3 re-releasing HTC Desire Android 2.2 update today

HTC Desire owners on 3 will be able to get onboard with Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, again today, after the carrier announced it is pushing out the OS upgrade for a second time.

3 initially sent out the update on October 14th, but was forced to pull it ten days later when a raft of Desire users reported problems accessing the Android Market after downloading Froyo.

However, a post on the carrier’s Twitter site reveals it’s ready to roll out what it’s to be hoped is a glitch-free version of the new iteration today.

3 Tweeted: “News in from HTC - The update will be re-released on the 11th :-)."

Froyo brings (back) some pretty smart features to HTC’s best-selling smartphone, including improved battery life and 720p HD video recording.

The update also offers Flash 10.1 support in the browser and some rather natty HTC apps, including a custom calculator and a tethering appliction that enables Desire owners to use their handset as a dongle to get online with other 3G-enabled devices.
