Orange has issued word through their Twitter account that a slight delay will bring the release of Android 2.2 for the HTC Desire locked to their network back to a mid-September release date. It isn’t the biggest delay just yet, but if we know anything about Android updates they always start off with well-intentioned release dates slowly and slowly shifting until 6 months have passed and the update is no where in sight. OK, so the recent round of Froyo updates have done a good a fairly good job of eliminating that scenario so we will cut Orange some slack.
They are citing a delay in HTC delivering the update as the reason it is being pushed back. A follow up to their original announcement further put the delay in HTC’s hands, saying it “is not related to Orange services on the device.” Hopefully that puts your mind at ease if your first thought was Orange needed just a bit more time to load the update down with bloatware.
Geeze, it’s almost September already? Where does the time go? You Desire owners on Orange should get your update in no time…(fingers crossed).
