HTC EVO bringing FroYo to HTC next week

American owners of the 4G touting powerhouse that is the HTC EVO have reason to rejoice past owning one of the best handsets around as the device readies for the Android 2.2, FroYo update confirmed for arrival on August 3rd.

Stateside network provider, Sprint has announced that the Android 2.2 update will officially go live for the EVO next week with users of the HTC device able to get their FroYo fix early thanks to a manual user-initiated OS download option.

Due to a lack of 4G connectivity support in the UK, the HTC EVO has failed to make it to British shores, its success in the US, however, is fitting with its monstrous set of specs that includes a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, 8-megapixel camera and 720p HD video recording capabilities.

Speaking back in June HTC declared: "We are working hard with our partners to update the HTC Sense experience on Froyo and distribute it to our customers as fast as possible. We expect to release updates for several of our 2010 models including Desire, Legend and Wildfire beginning in Q3".
