The HTC Desire will be getting the update first, alongside US models the HTC Droid Incredible and HTC Evo 4G. The HTC Legend however, seems worryingly absent from their plans.
“If your phone was launched this year, we will most likely offer an upgrade for it to the Froyo version.” says the official HTC statement, followed by a list of handsets including the Desire lined-up for the update.
HTC will be working closely alongside Google to ensure their excellent SENSE UI will work without a hitch with Android 2.2.
If you’re hoping that the Legend or Wildfire may eventually get 2.2, there is still a glimmer of hope. HTC round off the statement by saying, “We will announce a full list of phones and dates once we are closer to launching the upgrades.” Keep in mind though that owners of the HTC Hero have been waiting aeons for an Android upgrade, so HTC’s upgrade track-record isn’t one to hold your breath over.
