Froyo flies in for Vodafone HTC Legend

It's a busy day in the world of Froyo.

First up, Vodafone has begun rolling out its Android 2.2 update to Legend users.

HTC had promised a Froyo update for the handset earlier this month, but had warned: "For those of you with carrier-branded versions of Legend there will be a slightly longer wait...once we finalise the update within HTC, the software must then go through the appropriate approval process at each carrier that supports Legend on their network. This is the same process for all of our handsets, and Legend is no different".

However, there are numerous reports (including from Mrs Pocket-lint herself) that the update has now gone live with one poster on the Vodafone forum writing:

"Right just checked my branded vodafone Legend for updates & its telling me an update is avalible update is Android 2.2 & HTC sense update size is 82.88mb so recomends downloading via wifi".

No prizes for spelling or grammar, but top marks for spreading the word.

Froyo is also spreading its love to Virgin Media's HTC Desire customer base. A statement on the carrier's website read: "We've started sending out the Froyo update as of 9am this morning".

The update is only available for customers on Virgin specific firmware 1.23.351.1 at the moment though. If you're still on the original firmware (1.15.405.4) you'll have to update to the 1.23.351.1 firmware first, but there should be a fix in "the next few days".

Finally, Dell has announced via its Facebook page that the Streak will be getting its Android 2.2 upgrade "before the end of November" with a global roll-out planned, starting in the UK.

Phew, that's a whole lot of Froyo news right there. We're going to take a lie-down before the Gingerbread madness begins.

After all, Google has recently been teasing the next Android update via its Twitter page.
