Thanks to a developer over at XDA, the HTC Desire is set to receive a Froyo port sometime today. XDA user Ahmgsk has been hacking away at the Nexus One-like device and the fruits of his labor have converged into a bowl of frozen yogurt.


Benchmarks (the same one performed on the Motorola Shadow yesterday) puts it a good step ahead of the Shadow and just a small step beneath the Nexus One (though, at this level of comparison, you can pretty much say it’s just as fast). If you’re not too worried about losing your Sense-enabled UI (in turn for some nice features that were introduced with Froyo), keep your eye on the XDA thread for an update later today.

If you don’t fancy hacking your device or losing Sense, then be sure to wait until late June as HTC could be delivering an Android 2.2 update themselves at that time.
