Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation has just announced the availability of a software update for one of its latest handsets, the HTC Desire HD. Announced officially last month with Google's Android 2.2 Froyo operating system on board, the handset started to hit shelves this week and it appears that HTC already delivered the first new firmware for it.
The handset vendor announced the availability of the new software
update via its website, where it also unveiled a series of details on what the OTA firmware is all about.
“Update Information: Screen control and photo message compatibility enhancements,” is what HTC
notes on its website.
It's rather interesting that the new device requires improvements so soon after the handset was released on the market, but it's good to know that HTC is on top of any issues that might appear with its devices.
As stated above, the HTC Desire HD
comes to the market with the Android 2.2 Froyo OS on boar, the latest version of the platform, and nothing would change on this area following the update.
According to the company, users downloading and installing the software solution should perform a backup of all files on their devices, so as to make sure that no important information is lost during the update process.
At the same time, the company announced that, after installing the update, the Software number on users' mobile phones
should be 1.32.405.3.
To confirm the successful installation of the new firmware, users would have to check the Software number by going to MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software Information> Software number from the home screen of their phones
“You can now download the latest software update for new features and improved performance. It won’t delete any of your content and we’d recommend using a Wi-Fi connection as this is a large update. If not, standard data connection charges may apply,” the mobile phone maker also announced.
