O2 Pulls HTC Desire Android 2.2 Update

O2 has pulled the over-the-air HTC Desire Android 2.2 software update shortly after its roll-out.

The move comes after a number of consumers complained on O2 forums that the software update had caused their smartphones to freeze and was posing problems while being installed, such as crashing the browser.

The majority of users, however, have found no issues when installing the update.

Speaking to tech news site Tech Radar, an O2 spokesperson said: "The Android 2.2 Froyo update for HTC Desire went live on O2 this morning."

"While many have been able to download it successfully, we have had a small number of reports of customers having problems installing the software, which we are looking into," he added.

O2 has said that the update will be suspended until the issues are resolved.

In a statement, the company said: "While many have been able to download it successfully, we have had a small number of reports of customers having problems installing the software, which we are looking into. While we investigate these issues, we're putting the 2.2 update on hold."

The software update promises to bring increased speeds and high definition video recording to the Android-based handset.
