China is late in getting the HTC Desire and Wildfire, but Chinese customers should look at the bright side: the two smartphones (plus the China-exclusive Tianyi) will have Android 2.2 Froyo at launch.
Of course, it’s said that, in other markets, the Desire should get Froyo starting today, but Chinese users won’t have to deal with the update process at all.
The news also kind of confirms the fact that the European Wildfire will get Froyo sometime later this year.
Together with the Windows Mobile-based HTC Tianxi, the Desire, Wildfire and Tianyi are the first HTC-branded devices to be available in China. Until now, the Taiwanese company commercialized its handsets across China under the Dopod brand.
