HTC Desire gets Android 2.2 Froyo update
Just saw this update notification on my HTC Desire when I woke up this morning. Finally — Android 2.2 Froyo is now available on the Desire.
The update is about 96MB in size and the upgrade takes around 20 to 30 minutes depending on your connection speed. I suggest doing this over WiFi instead of 3G (the update can pause and continue later if you get wonky connection so not a huge issue).
Android 2.2 Froyo seems more snappy on my HTC Desire afterwards. HTC also sent out this notice today.

Your phone will receive a notification of FOTA update when it is made available. Simply press OK to accept the update via a data connection such as Wi-Fi or GPRS/3G. After installing the update, you can confirm a successful update by confirming the Build number (From the Home Screen go to MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software Information> Build number). The new Build number after the update will be 2.13.707.1.
