Hi Guys.

Just thought i would give you all a little bit of inside info.

I work for a mobile retailer and was talking to the HTC technical rep / trainer today.

He explained how the froyo update is going to work and when its coming...

In the next week to 10 days you will get an OTA for your desire, this is stage 1 of the update and addresses some security issues and bugs before they can deploy froyo. Some of you might have had this already.

The froyo deployment will begin in about 4 - 5 weeks time, not only will it have the froyo features but some extra little things that HTC are adding to the distro.. this is the reason for the upgrade delay as they are working on the new features.

Some friends of mine are going on a training course with htc so hoping they will get to see a bit of froyo on the desire.

Least you all know its on its way...

If true, should be worth the wait.

we kinda have that, although not perfect, with rockplayer or whatever it's called. the video recording as it is now though is abysmal. either 720p video, or at least 800x480 with a solid 30fps in varying light conditions would be good.

720p with the variable frame rate we get now would be pointless

Yeah I'm not too bothered about video playback at the moment because the battery life is too crap to want to watch any video's on it.

I want 720p, the processor should be fast enough to process that. But out of everything what I'd really want is a proper power management system to make the damn phone last longer than it does.

Froyo was released about a week ago for the N1, so we might be lucky and get it to our desires soon also

The Rom that guy had is a HTC development Rom so they're already testing.

I think after flashing Paul's latest FroYo ROM I will be content with it for the next 4-5 weeks until Sense FroYo comes out. Very much looking forward to this, especially for the extra goodies.

Oh that's so wrong. Tease, tease, tease;)

I can't wait to see what Paul's got up his sleeve when it makes it here.
