HTC Desire gets an OTA Firmware Update

If you are one of the lucky ones to get your hands on a HTC Desire in the last week or so since it launched, then you might be surprised to know that HTC are already pushing out an OTA update to it to install a new firmware. Once installed the phone will then run version 1.15.405.4.

HTC haven’t mentioned what is included in the update, but we suspect a couple of tweaks here and there to help the phone run smoothly.

HTC recommend that when you get the message informing you an update is ready that you either download the update over Wi-Fi, or have an unlimited data plan to avoid the cost of downloading the update.

When the message pops up you just need to click to accept it where you phone will then download the update and reboot to install it. Full details from HTC found here…
