It’s finally official, folks: the HTC Desire for Vodafone will finally be getting Android 2.2 Monday, August 23rd according to Vodafone. This comes after the carrier was pressured by their users to release the upgrade amidst an arguably “pointless” non-Froyo OTA update that seemingly had no other purpose than to add bloatware beyond belief.

The reason for delay? Vodafone states:

Our priority has been to make sure that the software does what we said it will do. This meant testing took a little longer than anticipated.

There’s a catch, though: you may or may not get it Monday as they’re employing a staggered upgrade process. The wait will probably be a bit longer for a lot of you, but rest assured that updates will finally be going out. At least Vodafone’s committed to helping you get rid of the Vodafone 360 software (aforementioned bloatware) from your device once you finally do receive the upgrade. I’m sure many will appreciate that just as much as Froyo itself. Make your way to their support forum now (latest post) to read through their FAQ for more details.
