It seems a bit silly talking of an Android 2.2 (Froyo) update for the HTC Hero, when Android 2.1 (Éclair) update has only just started to hit handsets (at least in the US). However, for those of you wondering if HTC will release the Froyo update for Hero handsets then the answer is most probably no.
HTC apparently said that “most [HTC] phones launched this year will get an upgrade to [Android] 2.2.” This means the HTC Desire, Droid Incredible are almost dead certs to get the upgrade. “As we get closer to readiness, we’ll reveal a full list,” the spokesperson said. It will be interesting to see how quickly HTC can turnaround the Froyo update, especially after the HTC hero debacle. For the full list of new features of Android 2.2 click here.
