The Android 2.2 Froyo was announced just yesterday, but many users are already wondering if they will get the upgrade. Well, HTC is the first to shed some light about that and the news is good.
According to their official statement, most of the HTC Androids released in 2010 will be updated to Froyo before the end of the year. For now the confirmed devices include Desire, Droid Incredible, Evo 4G and MyTouch Slide.
Another certain thing is that T-Mobile G1 and HTC Dream won't get Froyo because their ROM is too small to acommodate the new OS.
We bet the first updated device will be Google Nexus One, so this fella doesn't need any official statement at all.
All updates should be released in the second half of this year but that's as specific as it gets.
i wouldn't be really surprised if Eclair for hero would prepare the device for future upgrades. this whole htc bashing seems senseless to me. people bash htc for delaying the release, while no specific date was ever confirmed. i've checked htc's...
I just don't believe them...
yes the 2.2 update should be much smoother, but HTC only confirmed 2.1 for hero in june, i sent them an email asking them about 2.2 update and they told me that nothing was confirmed regarding that issue
