HTC Droid Incredible to Get Froyo Update in Late July, Early August

If you’re an HTC Incredible user then this info is for you. According to an article at The Boy Genius Report, the Incredible is expected to get the brand new Android OS 2.2 (code name Froyo) in August. This information, taken from an email sent in by a tipster, goes into detail about the update and what users can expect from it.

Take a look below at the email and see if you believe what’s being said.

I wanted to pass along that the upcoming Incredible MR will also include Froyo (originally it was going to be two separate MRs). We are targeting the end of the month/first part of August. As a reminder, below are the highlights:
• Froyo
• 802.11 n
• 3G Mobile Hot Spot
• HTC Widget: Email
• HTC Widget: News
• EAS Updates
• 720p Video Recording
• Amazon MP3
• Skype
• My Verizon

If ultimately true, this update is very good news for current Incredible owners. these are features they will certainly all want to have as soon as possible. Of course, this means the rumored OS update that was supposed to roll out last weekend was either untrue or was halted to make ready for this improved one.

Either way, as an Incredible user, I’m excited for the times ahead and looking forward to my device being even more useful and in so many ways, incredible.

What do you think? Is Android 2.2 worth an extra few weeks of waiting?

    my incredible has reception issues too, L1search. I had them send me another one cause I thought it was that phone and this one does the same thing. Also, my first phone didn't go landscape except for youtube, now this one goes landscape for typing like it's supposed to. I think that the first batch came out with glitches for sure. I got mine the day they were released. I am now waiting for FROYO that was supposed to drop today. I wish they wouldn't mention these things until they are officially going to do it.

    I waited for 6 months for the phone, I guess I can wait a couple weeks for the latest OS too.
