Vodafone Have Decided To Pull Their Finger Out

Seems that vodafone have responded to the anger thrown towards them after the last update they sent out to the HTC Desire witch when downloaded the owners phone with 360 services. The update was made worse because it came the same day that HTC released android 2.2 across europe, so when people thought they were updating to Froyo they were actualy getting alot of branded stuff. Vodafone told Techradar the following

"We've listened to feedback from customers on a number of points around the recent 360 Android 2.1 update and made some changes to the roll out plan," a Vodafone spokesperson told TechRadar.

"The Android 2.2 update for Vodafone HTC Desire users will be based on the HTC open market version of the software and we will customise it to ensure ournetwork settings are installed.

"We will let you know when the date for delivery of the Android 2.2 update is finalised, but, subject to testing, we expect this to be in 7-10 days time."

And in responce to the 360 issue they said the following

"For customers who have downloaded the recent 360 update for Android 2.1, we can confirm that the Android 2.2 update will remove the 360 applications and will leave the homepage and bookmarks on your current settings.

"Customers who want to access the 360 services will be able to do so once the Android 2.2 compatible version is available and, in the meantime, can now download apps like 360 People from the Android Marketplace.

"We plan to make the 360 apps available in a separate update for the HTC Desire at a later date, giving customers the choice to download it."

So it looks like vodafone will come out of this with their reputation intact, after all everybody makes mistakes.
