Whenever a new version of Android is released to the masses, we can be sure to expect questions of when it will land on a particular device, probably until Google releases the next Android update, at which point the cycle starts over again.  Speculation has been running rampant about Android 2.2 recently, and yesterday we heard that Froyo would be hitting several of Verizon's hot Android devices next week.  Today, we've got news that HTC may begin rolling Froyo out to its devices, starting with the Desire, starting tomorrow.  HTC Europe spokesperson Mark Moons tweeted the news this morning, but HTC has responded by saying that while it's possible that an update could start going out tomorrow, nothing is finalized because testing is still going on.

It definitely gets frustrating waiting around for Android updates if you're not a lucky Nexus One owner, but I suppose that's the risk you take when purchasing a device with a skin on top of the OS.  However, I'm sure that if this rumor doesn't pan out, we'll be seeing Froyo hit HTC phones soon.  The rumors keep coming back, and they're starting to get too numerous to not be true.  When do you think we'll see Froyo hit HTC's handsets?  Will it be days?  Weeks?  Maybe even months?
