We've just heard from HTC, who's confirmed that European HTC Desires will be receiving the Android 2.2 Froyo update from this weekend, with a couple of extras—namely, 720p video recording and the ability to sync music with iTunes.


Full details from HTC, below:

"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, though 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."

Is it true Android 3.0 is bringing 1080p video recording on the HTC desire as the hardware is already there, just needs highly efficient coding.
