The HTC Desire is coming soon to U.S. Cellular, and it may very well be packing Android 2.2 (better known as Froyo), as Vodafone UK’s version of the Desire is getting an over the air firmware updated next Monday. Although there’s no promise that such an update would cross the pond, Android 2.2 features portable hotspot functions, updated camera and album user interface, and a couple of other improvements. We’re still waiting on a 2.2 update for the Droid Incredible and pretty much everything else, but Froyo is currently available on the Nexus One (a close relative of the Desire), the EVO 4G, Droid, and Droid 2.
The Desire itself is a fine-looking device, packing a 3.7″ AMOLED WVGA display, 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, and 3G. If you’re in the UK and thinking of nabbing one now that it’s getting Android 2.2, you can find the HTC Desire in Vodafone’s online store.
