Yesterday we reported that Android 2.2 Froyo OTA update for HTC Desire users in Europe will be rolled out. But it seems as if the update is delayed until this weekend but the good thing about this delay is, that you will be able to record HD 720p quality videos on your unlocked European HTC Desire. This is simply htcDesireawesome as 720p recording is the most craved for feature in all high end handsets including the iPhone 4.

As per the official words from HTC, your device will be able to sync  with iTunes once updated to the official Android 2.2 Froyo. Here is what HTC PR said and we quote:

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, through 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.”

Although there is no warning intimation from Android hacking community on upgrading to this official Android 2.2 Froyo update on rooted HTC Desires, but we will stress on practicing caution. Once the official build is out, hackers will soon be able to provide you with a custom ROM based on this build for your Rooted HTC Desire.
