If you're an Orange HTC Desire owner waiting with bated breath for your update to Android 2.2 , you'll have to wait a little longer. There's been a a delay in receiving the 2.2 Froyo update from HTC that will slow down the update, said Orange in a tweet today. We can expect the update in mid-September, rather than the imminent update that we expected. 

HTC released the official update at the beginning of August, but networks have to test the new version before they unleash it on the world. The delay isn't due to Orange adding their own custom gubbins to the operating system, said Orange. Updates to Desires on other networks, such as Vodafone, have already begun.

Previously, HTC Hero owners on Orange were on tenterhooks waiting for the update to Android 2.1 update to make it to their phones. HTC apologised after Orange Hero owners had to wait over a month for their refresh, due to lengthy testing on Orange's huge European network.

We drooled over the Froyo update because of its support for multiple Google Apps accounts and Flash Player 10.1, among other improvements. Read our full  Android 2.2 review  for all the gory details.
