    Overall speed is supposed to be greatly improved.

    Auto App updates.

    Flash better performance.

    Check out the review on Engadget.

    And 2.2 runs much faster than 2.1 + the browser should work much quicker than 2.1 because of the "push" technology which will be used to pre-load websites.

    Keep an eye on the following thread where many many users are contacting HTC direct in order to try to clarify whether the Legend will get 2.2. Hoping that the number of requests the HTC receive will show them just how important the Legend is and deserves a 2.2 update!

    question about Android 2.2 (FROYO) - xda-developers

    I asked HTC about this and had a reply as follows:
    "Dear Mr Ellis, Thank you for your enquiry about your HTC Legend update. We are considering a Froyo upgrade for some models of our phones, but we are still analysing the impact this will have on the user experience. We will announce a full list of phones and dates once we are closer to launching the upgrades. Best regards, OlivierM HTC"

    So best bet is to go to HTC - Support - Customer Service - Support via e-Mail and ask yourself that way, if they get loads of people asking, they should update it, threat to leave HTC forever, that always gets them.

    Hi All,

    Hope this helps for this thread ;)

    " Published on May 21, 2010 Google announced that it will be releasing Android 2.2 in the next couple of weeks. However, which, HTC handsets will be receiving the Froyo update?
    Well, according to Pocket-lint, HTC has confirmed that the majority of phones it released this year will get Android 2.2

    I had emailed customer service last evening and I got a response within a span of 6 hours (quick response). The Tech had stated that

    Your right Bro, the email means that they have tried the version on Legend and its all fine....but they will release the version once the HTC sense is build accordingly.

    Personally I don't really care as I'm happy with my phone at the moment and any new, free, features are a bonus.

    I'll certainly not be throwing my toys out of the pram if it doesn't happen...

    Cheers Frostation. Sounds good.

    Now we just have to deal with the 'normal' delay for significant version updates.

    If I am correct, v 2.2 most important feature is the ability to store apps to the SD card. Currently, we have to make do with the phone's insanely small 384MB RAM.
