T-Mobile UK pushes German Froyo to Desire users

Small price to pay?

Seven Steps to Software Security

Top marks to T-Mobile UK... er... Orange... er... Everything Everywhere, which has just pushed out an update that will take owners of its HTC Desire smartphone to Android 2.2.

And even more marks for ensuring it's the German update.

Yes, punters were this weekend treated to a the latest version of Google's smartphone operating system... and a host of untranslated apps from T-Mobile Germany. Worse, you can't uninstall them afterwards.

To be fair, punters also appear to have gained improved Wi-Fi reception, phone-as-hotspot operation, a better Gmail implementation and more advanced video playback. ®
