Sounds brilliant, i'm a symbian user but these features are amazing, time to consider whether to become a Droid!!!! :))))))

About 6 months from now fastest, under one condition that HTC does not release new phones with v2.2 on board.
Because if they did, Desire can wait a little more longer.
You can understand that HTC must push the sales of the new phone, right? :P
Anonymous, 21 May 2010i'm thinking of buying HTC desire which runs on android 2.1v.
does anyone knows if there will... moreHTC Desire, Legend, EVO, Incredible…etc… will get Froyo eventually, probably by the time Google announces next version of Android… problem is Sense UI, they have to work it and optimize it for 2.2…. And still make and SELL new phones with 2.2 preloaded. 
Will see…. Luckily for us there’s a lot of android development going on, I’m sure XDA or somebody will cook up something. 
Apart from the HTC phones and a few phones from other mobile companies, no old phone is likely to get the 2.2 update. They'll probably only give 2.2 to pones released after June.
i'm thinking of buying HTC desire which runs on android 2.1v.
does anyone knows if there will be an available update to android 2.2v for 2.1v phones? if so, the url of the official news will be more than perfect.
HTC have said most phones released in 2010 will see a froyo update in the second half of the year, def getting a desire now
Anonymous, 21 May 2010What are the hardware requirements for Android 2.2? Can a phone running 2.1 run 2.2?as stated, froyo isn't hungry recources etaer like eclair.
It run 4 times faster with the same processor. logically that should go with lower cpu specs.
my question is, would they (HTC for example) will do it?
I don't think so, look at hero users still waiting for outdated updated to eclair next month!
Google should fix this mess really. Existing device with the capability should get the update, not according to business preferences by phone makers like HTC, etc.
HTC just look after their new devices like desire, etc. and if they come up with new v2.2 device, then Desire owners can start crying like Hero did and still do!
mac, 21 May 2010its about time hope most recent phones for example samsung spica and htc hero gets this update... moreIt's unlikely. Even the new 15801 and i5500 will run 2.1. They MIGHT get updated to 2.2. Spica will most likely not receive an update.
is it me or is Engadget is taking readers away from this web page.
its about time hope most recent phones for example samsung spica and htc hero gets this update.....ehem(samsung)

Wow google hitng every thing now falsh sport now nokia and anuriod and symbian is battar chice and no falsh put iphone bak
Anonymous, 20 May 2010x10 will get android 2.1 at the same time android 3.0 will be release what a shame. and still ... moreThat'll teach you. SE is always late with updates. Enjoy your 1.5. The rest of us could be rocking Gingerbread before you get a lick of FroYo.
You CAN TRANSFER files via Bluetooth on android, just not on the earlier versions,you can beginning with 1.6 or 2.0 version. People are crazy and i think the ones that keep on saying that android can`t do that are just people who own iphones that clearly can`t do that from the box.
I am excited about the Adobe Flash 10.1 is included in this newest version of Android. Would anyone tell me which phones will get the Android 2.2 Froyo...? Thanks.
