Android 2.2 available for O2 locked HTC Desires today

Google's FroYo OS finally makes it to O2 locked Desires

O2 follows Vodafone with FroYo for Desire

The continued roll out of Google’s Android 2.2 operating system for the HTC Desire handset has hit another network as O2 confirms its customers can now download the OS via an over the air update.

Android 2.2, also known by its codename FroYo, was initially launched for unlocked, network-free Desire handsets last month before service providers began intermittently bringing the coveted OS to their network-locked devices.

O2 Desire users are now reporting that they are being prompted to install the new OTA update with issues of freezing and reboot failures accompanying the Android upgrade for a number of users.

Vodafone which was the first network to offer the FroYo update to its locked users came under criticism after it initially offered its own operating skin instead of the Android 2.2 OS with users left unable to uninstall Vodafone 360 until the real FroYo update arrived weeks later.
