Android 2.2 might already be rolling out to the Nexus One — but what about it’s nearly-identical European brother, the HTC Desire?

If a random HTC customer service rep is to be believed — which we generally wouldn’t recommend — the Desire should be seeing Android 2.2 in all of its Flash-packin’, performance-boosting glory within the next month.

Our buds over at Phandroid spotted this gem on XDA-Dev. The tale, as its told: a grumpy customer decided to ring up HTC about his Desire’s inability to store applications on the SD card — an issue which is nullified in Android 2.2.

The CS Rep initially refused to budge on any info, but Grumpy McCustomer kept on pushing. After a quick chat with his supervisor, the CS Rep dropped this litle tid-bit:

But you never heard this from me…. A new update is coming the 23rd of June and you will be able to put some apps on to the micro sd card.

So, in other words: according to a forumgoer who purportedly spoke to a CS rep who allegedly had inside info on the HTC Desire’s update plans, Android 2.2 is coming to the Desire on June 23rd. Take it as you will, won’t you?
