HTC Desire fans should rejoice as both Virgin Mobile and Vodafone have confirmed separately that they will be rolling out updates for the HTC Desire that will bring Android OS 2.2 goodness to the popular Android handset.

Vodafone posted a message on their support forum here saying that they are still testing and developing the update for the HTC Desire and are working to get it approved both by Google and HTC; he did however stress that the start of the roll out should happen within days, not as early as the end of August.

They added that it is an absolute priority for Vodafone customers to receive this update as soo as possible and that it should work as they promised it to be although they did acknowledged that it is taking longer than they initially anticipated.

Virgin media confirmed via Twitter that it will release Android OS 2.2 over the air updates for the HTC Desire and the HTC Widlfire by early September, hopefully before the 15th of September, at which date, HTC is expected to launch the new HTC Desire HD.

Froyo - as it is known - will introduce a number of radical features like the ability to turn your handset into a Wi-Fi hotspot and support for Flash.
