HTC: FroYo updates not complete until Christmas

HTC confirms its roll out of Android 2.2 will take rest of year.

Got a spanking new HTC Android blower? Can’t wait for FroYo to rock up so you can play nice with all those updates? Well, you’re going to have a wait on your hands. HTC has said it’s going to take the rest of the year to get its Android line up loaded up with the latest software.

The mobile maker’s online community manager said he hoped HTC, “...would be done with FroYo updates before Christmas.” Seeing as it’s taken almost a year for the HTC Hero to get an Android 2.1, even that sounds optimistic.

Explaining the Taiwanese tech titan’s position, Lin said, “It takes time to port all of our applications over to FroYo and then make sure that it is running well on each of our devices. That’s not like a one week kind of project. We need to make sure that our applications are taking advantage of the FroYo features.”

That means Android 3.0 Gingerbread could be ready to roll by the time the likes of the Legend, Desire and Wildfire are sorted with Android 2.2. However, rumours suggest these phones will not be in line for an Android 3.0 upgrade as Google looks to more specced-up future devices.
