TELUS HTC Desire Android 2.2 Froyo going out OTA

Canadian carrier TELUS has begun to push out its Android 2.2 Froyo update for the HTC Desire.  The product page for the Desire - which launched running Android 2.1 Eclair - has been updated with the message "Upgrade your HTC Desire to Android 2.2 today" along with a list of new features.
