Virgin Mobile updates HTC mobiles

Virgin Media's mobile phone outfit has announced they will be rolling out the Google mobile OS Android 2.2., on HTC Desires and Wildfire handsets running on their network in September.

The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Virgin Mobile, who runs from T-Mobile's network used twitter to get the message across to the media this week. The tweet from the main company, Virgin Media, reads: " HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire - great news, we're expecting to release OTA updates to 2.2 (Froyo) early Sep :)"

This update could be rolled out to the latest High Tech Computer Corporation mobile phones even before Virgin Media's main mobile phone network starts their updates, which is reportedly sometime in September on T-Mobile.

Virgin Mobile has been silent over the Android ‘Froyo' 2.2 update until now, where most networks have commented in one way or another on when their handsets will receive the update.

Virgin were one of the first networks to announce the budget HTC Wildfire, where we believe they could be the first to confirm a delivery date of the new Android OS on that device.

The rollout by Virgin will be through an Over The Air (OTA) notification message, although downloading the firmware update over WIFI would be preferable due to its sheer size.
