Sprint Expects to Launch Android 2.2 “In the Near Future”

In a recent announcement on Twitter, Sprint has said that it expects to launch Android 2.2 “in the near future.” On the Sprint’s message boards, a Sprint employee said

“As work on finalizing the software is under way, Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 in the near future. It also will be available as an upgrade on the recently launched HTC EVO 4G.”

After being asked if this update would also affect the Samsung Moment and Sprint Hero, Sprint responded and said that it would not be upgrading those devices.  Sprint has in the past announced upgrades to their Android devices were coming soon, and then delayed them for months. Let’s hope this is not the case for the EVO.

    I have an answer from a lady at [email protected] which actually seems to contradict the 'no upgrade for Moment/Hero' thing, but I won't post it so as to not get them in any hot water with either Sprint or the rest of us.
    I'm going to remain hopeful her talking to them from the inside is possibly a bright glimmer of hope.

    I had emailed them saying "I'm not in need of a full 2.2 update, just the new underpinnings, particularly the JIT for the 2-5x speed increases. This would keep my device relevant into the next year or two and allow me to buy more apps and games from the market as the market grows.'.
    That got a quick answer.
