HTC: Desire, Legend, Wildfire Getting Froyo

The official rollout of Android 2.2 is underway starting with today’s news of the Nexus One update.  While some of our readers are clinging to the hopes that their phone will see an update beyond Android 1.6, others are already looking further down the road.  As we’ve seen with some first generation of devices, Froyo might not be in the cards.  Tech site Recombu has received word from HTC that at least three of their 2010 handsets will see Android 2.2 as soon as next quarter (Q3).

“We are working hard with our partners to update the HTC Sense experience on Froyo and distribute it to our customers as fast as possible. We expect to release updates for several of our 2010 models including Desire, Legend and Wildfire beginning in Q3.” – HTC

Great news to be sure, but not totally unexpected.  Seriously, let’s hope that phones released over the last six months would see support for updates in the same year.

    Even 2 Years Old iPhone 3G get’s the latest Updates (iOS4).

    And Only a FEW SELECTED HTC Phone that was launch in 2010 WILL (not confirm) gets Froyo.

    Not even all 2010 launch phone get the Froyo………. this is not acceptable man……

    Tot of getting the HTC android phone, as I am a Android phone Fan….and never plan of getting the iPhone b4, as i don’t like Apple Close Control Platform

    This make me doubt of getting Android especially HTC phone…..
    Better getting the Nexus1 & avoid 3 Party Release Android Phone.

    This is not a Good news for Android community

    So here we are in November and I’m looking at Legends on Amazon, and not one of them has Froyo.

    Yet another manufacturer basically saying “Buy another phone”.
