In your excitement over Android 2.2 “FroYo” launching, there is one solid doubt left: when will you be able to use the goshdarn thing? So that’s when AndroidCentral pinned HTC for comment on that, and here’s what they got:
“…if your phone was launched this year, we will most likely offer an upgrade for it to the Froyo version. This includes popular models like the Desire and Droid Incredible as well as hotly anticipated phones like the Evo 4G, MyTouch slide and upcoming models. We will announce a full list of phones and dates once we are closer to launching the upgrades. We are working closely with Google and our other partners to ensure we have the earliest access to everything we need to provide a complete and solid Sense experience on Froyo. We expect to release all updates in the second half of this year but can’t be more specific yet.“
This meaning that 2010 devices like the Droid Incredible, EVO 4G, HTC Desire, HTC Legend and myTouch Slide should all get the update, in Q2 of this year, since HTC per usual, must update the Sense UI, bit by bit, piece by piece, eternity after eternity. On the other hand Nexus One owners will probably get the update first, since they are stock Android, hardcore Google Phone users.
