The HTC Desire will be among the first batch of HTC phones to get an Android Froyo update. The Taiwanese handset slinger has confirmed that it and US phones like the HTC Droid Incredible and HTC Evo 4G are in line for the icy upgrade. But others like the HTC Legend don’t get a name check…
In an official statement HTC says: “If your phone was launched this year, we will most likely offer an upgrade for it to the Froyo version.” The statement then names the HTC Desire as among the initial chosen ones.
Other Android-packing HTC smarties like the HTC Legend and HTC Wildfire could still be in luck. The statement continues: “We will announce a full list of phones and dates once we are closer to launching the upgrades.”
The statement foes on to note that HTC is working with Google and other partners to make sure that the HTC Sense UI plays nice with Android Froyo.
The long-delayed HTC Hero Android upgrade is apparently down to the difficulties of integrating Sense so we’ve got our fingers crossed that mixing it up with Froyo is a little easier.
HTC says its hopeful that all the Android 2.2 upgrades will be completed in the second half of this year. Let us know what phone and version of Android you’re currently toting.
