Default Froyo (OS 2.2)

Woo little Australian Telstra has it's own forum now.

Has anybody heard anything about when/if Telstra will be releasing Froyo for older h/sets like the HTC Desire?

Hi everyone,
Thanks for all of your feedback on Telstra’s Android device range. Here are some answers to some of the commonly asked questions you’ve posted.
Regarding FroYo
A few of you have asked how the update to HTC Desire’s operating system is tracking. I can confirm that we’re set to introduce Android 2.2 (aka FroYo) within the next four weeks. As a background, Telstra always puts its firmware deployments through rigorous network and performance testing — and this takes a little bit of time.
It’s also important to note that HTC works with hundreds of operators around the world and Telstra, like those operators, has had to secure a place in HTC’s software deployment schedule. Again this takes time.
Many of us at Telstra are HTC Desire fans, so we’re as keen as you to make FroYo available. Thanks for your patience while we finalise testing.
Android customisation
We recognize customers want maximum control over the apps saved to their phones. The team is currently working on future user interface designs for Next G Android smartphones that reduce the number of shortcuts saved to device menus."


Assuming the date doesn't slip, sometime in the next 2 weeks.

Sorry, wouldn't normally correct another's post except I didn't understand what you meant until I googled telstra desire 2.2

Thanks very much for the heads up. I would have missed it otherwise, downloading now!

& to think I was sick of waiting & was going to root my phone this weekend.

thanks again.

After using it for a few days, I have to say that for the most past, the update is working fine. The new features are cool , but after having to wait so long, I'm actually a little disappointed because there are really not that many changes.

It seems that google spent most of their effort on improving voice commands, which I don't use at all. I just feel stupid talking to my phone, not to be confused with having a conversation with someone over the phone.

When using commands I have to speak clearly & loudly so I just don't use it. same goes for any of those new phone menu systems at banks or wherever that insist of voice commands rather than pressing numbers. I refuse to use them as well.

The one problem I have is that the Telstra bar code reader app is all screwed up. Holding the phone portrait makes the camera display go stretched & pointing the camera seems awkward & inaccurate. This is very disappointing considering how long Telstra delayed the release with the excuse that they were "testing" everything.

Also, nothing has changed with regards to the crapware, I still can not remove any of it & am still considering rooting the phone.

I'm definitely going to root when gingerbread gets released, if not sooner.

Man I feel dirty being a Telstra customer, but they have the fastest data, so I'm stuck with them.
