HTC has promised that the Legend, Wildfire, and Desire would all be getting Android 2.2 sometime in Q3 of this year, and by the looks of some tweets by one of the directors at HTC Europe, Mark Moon. The above picture has been translated by Google Translate, and with the tweet stating that HTC will start rolling out 2.2 updates to Desire handsets tomorrow then get the other two devices later. However I wonder if this is just for European HTC units or worldwide.
This news makes sense with the news of all of the recent leaks for official Android 2.2 updates for many devices, as well as the fact that the Droid Incredible, Droid, and Droid X are expected to start getting 2.2 in August. It looks like manufacturing companies have finished their testing of 2.2 on most of their handsets and are ready to release them to us. This is great news for Desire owners who have been waiting for the 2.2 update. We all know that there are probably ways of getting 2.2 on your device that isn’t official, but for those people that don’t want to risk damaging their device this means you don’t have to wait much longer.
Since this is the first of the three announced HTC handsets to get the 2.2 update, does this sway your decision on which phone you are thinking of getting? It will be the first Android phone to get an official 2.2 update since the Nexus One, but if you feel like waiting it definitely wont be the last.
