    I'm glad they've said something, maybe this will put a stop to all the silly rumours that make it appear that the update is being pushed further and further back

    I've come from Symbian where updates were critical. Many of the phones I had were completely useless until a couple of updates had been pushed through. My n96 was dire until 2 updates and it was completely unusable.

    At the moment my desire works like a dream so I don't really mind when Froyo is released.

    Relax people :D

    yeah, its the new version of android, version 2.2!
    its a lot faster then the current version, upto 2-5 times faster, according to google!
    and one of the many new features is that you can install your apps to the sd-card!!
    it can be done in the current version 2.1, but after rooting and installing a custom cooked rom.

    Is there anywhere you can read up about Froyo and what it has improved on over the old OS?

    And does it just automatically send an update through when its released or do you have to go a-searching for it? :)

    Some say it was developed by the microscopic life form of planet mars,
    Some say it feeds on shattered iphone screens,
    All we know is its called "GOOGLE.COM" :p

    This is all well and good but when it does finally get released I will still need to wait on T-Mobile to get their arses into gear.

    That said, there appears to be very little T-Mob customisation on the software that came with the phone so maybe it won't take too long.
