HTC Desire Joins the Froyo Party

HTC Desire Joins the Froyo Party

Less than two weeks after the announcement of Froyo, the new version of Android that brings massively improved performance statistics, and the revamped OS is cropping up on many popular Android devices.

You’ve seen the ports for the G1 and the myTouch in this article, but now it’s the Desire’s turn for an unofficial taste of Froyo’s deliciousness. Being the Nexus One’s (only slightly) bigger brother in terms of hardware, porting it over was only a matter of time once the OTA update for the Nexus One was released.

Unlike with the other ports, the list of things that don’t work is already quite brief  - just stay off Bluetooth and don’t use your camera and you should be fine. Benchmark statistics show off the Desire’s blisteringly fast processor, putting it first in the benchmark table once Froyo is installed.

To try out  the unofficial Froyo port for yourself, have a look for a suitable ROM in the Desire section – like this one by xda member richardtrip. However, you’ll have to consider whether it’s truly worth moving from Eclair so soon, since an official update for the device is definitely on the cards.
