The ROM is now available, download.
----
The update is now confirmed and it will be available this weekend:
The Android 2.2 (FroYo) update for HTC Desire will start rolling out across Europe this weekend. As well as including the complete set of Android 2.2 features, the update will contain a few special additions of our own through the latest iteration of HTC Sense. The update will provide 720p video capture, HTC's App Share widget, as well as our enhanced HTC Caller ID, and improved multi-language keyboard. Also, through the update, HTC Sync will allow HTC Desire users to sync their music with iTunes.

HTC Desire users will be notified that the over-the-air update is available to download when their phone automatically checks for software updates. The update won't delete any of the phone's content. However, due to the size of the update, we would advise using a WiFi connection to download it wherever possible to avoid additional data charges.

This update will initially roll out to unlocked HTC Desire handsets. Operator specific versions of the update are undergoing testing and we expect to make them available in several weeks' time.

As seen in this news item on the dutch site Tweakers.net, Mark Moons (HTC Director Benelux) says that the froyo update for the Desire will begin to roll out this thursday (tomorrow).

I think this news update is very reliable as Mark Moons also tweeted it "We will start updating the Desire to 2.2 tomorrow, later more devices".

What do you think?

Read the same thing, I am hopeful.
However called the support line and they did not have official release date yet, but then again what do they know.

(i was actually the person which pointed them to the twitter feed)

He just posted a new message:
.Veel (o.a.) Tweakers kijken uit naar 2.2 met extra aandacht voor een specifieke feature.... maar 1 belangrijke wordt niet genoemd! rara...
(many (among others) Tweakers (dutch tech website) are looking forward to 2.2 with extra attention to a specific function (from replies on tweakers.net i deduce the a2sd function).....but 1 important one is not mentioned! who can guess it...


I'm guessing 720P recording.

It is now also posted on the official HTC NL twitter page:

sorry i don't understand what you mean with A2SD+??? i thought this is a built-in feature of froyo? or do you mean something different?

it would be great if froyo would come tomorrow... i thought of rooting my desire this week, but now i will wait to see if froyo is officially coming to the desire :)

A2SD+ is a script that can install ALL apps to the SD-card on a new partition. Froyo can move and install all the apps to a seperate folder on your SD when the developer stated so.

Personally i would advise anyone using debranded phones to use their gold cards when doing any possible OTA updates to avoid the problems experienced with the last OTA update!
