HTC Still Won’t Specify Android 2.2 Update Timeline

We just caught word of additional Droid Incredible‘s receiving the update which includes 720p recording, the new boot animation, Amazon MP3 store, and mobile hotspot capabilities, but we’re still wondering when Froyo is going to show up.

Reaching out to HTC gets you the following message…

I understand how important it is to have the latest news about updates for your Incredible. 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. Please keep an eye on www.twitter.com/htc for the latest news, and thank you for your patience.

And since we’re 5 days into the second half of 2010, should we start an official countdown? ¬†We definitely don’t want this turning into another HTC Hero update situation.

Oh, and how was your 4th?

    I think this updates one vanilla for us that don't care about sense and would just like our Froyo, and the other for the people that love the sense and a delayed update..thanks

    I would be willing to pay for a true update! But on the other hand they are still selling the phone so they should put out an update! If anything they should just port over 2.2 with out sence ui over top of it.Thanks

    I guess why worry about Froyo when you wont be getting your dInc until September? by then HTC needs to save their product by shipping it WITH FROYO… else its a garminphone.

    I got a Similar email:

    Dear XXXXXXXX,

    I understand how important it is for you to have the latest software available for your device. We are considering an upgrade for some models of our phones to FROYO, but we are still analyzing the impact this will have on the user experience. 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. We have learned much from our first software upgrade experience and have taken all that into account when providing this estimate. While we are fairly sure this timeframe is accurate, we cannot guarantee it. We won't rush to release an upgrade that is not ready for you to use, but we will do our best to hit our target.

    To send a reply to this message or let me know I have successfully answered your question log in to our ContactUs site using your email address and your ticket number 10USCW27ENA001454.

    Sincerely,

    Sarah

    Kellex offtopic was reading. Google said the nexus one was the last and would be handing off the software well HTC is the ones who made nexus so after ginger bread over does that mean HTC will take over aandroid updates and so on if so we're screwed

  • thedonxr

    4th was awesome! Maybe we should ask them to make 2 updates one vanilla for us that don't care about sense and would just like our Froyo, and the other for the people that love the sense and a delayed update :-P
