    well i've just been down with my mate to pick up his replacement htc legend and the bloke who served us was saying 2.2 was saying that the htc desire is now getting discontinued and that 2.2 froyo is now available for the legend and desire... is ther any truth to this? mainly the discontinued claim?

    the Nexus One is no longer being sold by google directly after their stock runs out.

    and the Hero has finally got 2.1

    Maybe he had his wires crossed...lol
    The Desire isnt being discontinued yet.
    HTC have said that the Desire will be one of the first phones to get 2.2
    There are rumours of a Desire HD coming out at some point though.

    May be is preferable to wait for 2.2 froyo????? just a thought, it could be better to buy it 2.1 than upgrade to 2.2 within a few days of puchase......................

    The Hero has definitely got 2.1 at last. Although it doesn't matter to me, as I dumped mine for a Desire back in May :D

    I believe its just sales talk, same as some guy down the pub said. They don't really know whats going on but it might.probably will happen. I assume you meant they are planning to start pre-installing 2.2 instead of 2.1?

    I would assume they would but only when they actually have finished 2.2 for the Desire.

    They wouldn't stop selling the desire as currently they can't build them fast enough!
