HTC starts first Froyo updates with Desire

HTC's Benelux regional president Mark Moons today said that Android 2.2 (Froyo) would finally start reaching Sense UI-based phones as of Thursday. Starting with the Desire, the smartphone company will push out the upgrade to a first batch on July 29 and stagger it out to reach everyone. He added that the update would have two extra features, one of which is expected and one which isn't.

It's not apparent whether the rollouts are limited to Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands or will be worldwide, though HTC has often taken a localized approach that focuses on certain carriers or countries. Unlocked devices often get the earliest upgrades.

HTC has promised quicker upgrades for Android 2.2 than past editions and should finish all of them by the end of the year, though the upgrades will be limited only to devices that were released in 2010.
