It’s official: word from HTC is that “several” HTC phones released in 2010 – including the Desire, Legend, and Wildfire – will be getting Android 2.2 (FroYo) “beginning in Q3.” Considering that July is days away, that timetable isn’t too bad, all things considered.

No, it will not. 2.2 will not be available for HTC Hero or Samsung Moment

FroYo Update For Evo 4G Being Finalized

On their corporate blog, Sprint confirmed today that the Android 2.2 update for the EVO is being finalized. It’s pretty impressive that the FroYo source code was released just two days ago, and already Sprint is finalizing the code. Then again, as a corporate developer, Sprint had access to the source code earlier than the public, courtesy of the private code branch. It’s no surprise that they chose to update the EVO first, given that it’s their crown jewel.

Android 2.2 (Froyo) Coming To Motorola Droid In Late July, Droid X in Late August

 

The shot below, from the Verizon internal systems, shows that the original Droid will be receiving an OTA FroYo update sometime in late July.

The Droid X, on the other hand, won’t receive the update until late August.
