    Have a few queries before I go ahead

    • Does it have Android 2.2 Froyo official update? From HTC's support website it does say that the OTA update is out.
      HTC - Support
    • Is there any other Android 2.2 official upgraded phone available in India?
      I am looking for a phone with >= 1Ghz processor - I believe that rules out Motorola Milestone 1 and Samsung Galaxy S's 2.2 upgrade is not announced/only rumored.
    Again, I am only looking for official upgrade. I know that rooting can help upgrade (but I need this for work purpose - can't do that).

    @ smokinguns,
    I think the froyo update by HTC is official.Motorola milestone is of course getting froyo in Jan 2011 (worst case).U can wait for Motorola Milestone 2 which will be out in Dec 2010 or Jan 2011, which has 1 Ghz processor and comes with froyo.
    Galaxy s will get froyo in October (for India).
    Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 also has 1 Ghz snapdragon processor, the one HTC Desire has,but it is still running Android 1.6.

    thanks Kumar, that's quite a summary you gave me there.

    As per what I see the only choice is HTC Desire for me, I checked with the HTC India team and they also confirmed that
    - HTC Desire will be on 2.1 on boxes (but OTA for 2.2 is already out)
    - It was launched with the help of Tata DOCOMO, but is actually unlocked and will work with any other GSM providers.
