    Almost no thread goes by where someone doesn't mention froyo or how htc will be upgrading the evo to it.

    whats so great about it

    And is HTC going to put it on all evos?

    Jeez, I don't understand what the point is keeping secrets.

    Straight from the horse's mouth - Android.com

    Faster, more efficient, and the new architecture will actually have some much needed improvements that will GREATLY help some app developers.

    HTC has announced that it's coming to the EVO. When is the subject of many other threads.

    I agree. - 'more optimized' being the most convincing reason for me.

    Sent using my HTC Evo 4G.

    You are absolutely correct. :(

    Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 "in the near future." | AndroidGuys

    MANY thanks for helping to limit my disinfo!!

    I'm hating on HTC on this one. I saw plenty of articles and blogs over the past months clearly stating it would be a problem for the Hero. Then, if any of you recall, everyone lit up with info that HTC had added the Hero to the list. By name. By HTC. I can't find any of that anywhere now, just the rumor posts.

    Well in other news - guess I'll be rooting WifelyMon's Moment real soon now.

    Key features of 2.2. A lot of which is in custom roms already, but I am not rooting my evo this time round. Froyo is too close, and i'm happy with it the way it is. Thank you snapdragon.

    JIT (Just in time compiler) - increases linpack scores from 7-8 to 38 (saw in a youtube comparison running ported froyo)! Hero gets 2.5 average. Just know that thats a big difference! ( which means FAST!)
    Apps2SD- install apps on your sd card allowing you to have more apps then that capable or installing on the phones internal disk
    Flash- Of course this is good news, assuming it runs ok officially. Full flash support. No more flash lite. This means flash games, youtube videos on website without launched the player etc..
    V8 Javascript - Faster internet, browsing.
    Market- Auto updating apps or update all apps when your apps need updating

    I'm sure those videos go into more detail, but these are the main improvements you will notice. I want my desert!

    It could, you could always get an app like titanium backup and backup all your apps. Everything else on your phone should be on your sd card anyway or syncd with google.

    voice dial thru bluetooth is what I really want. It would help me greatly at my job.

    if i'm fully rooted, and i upgrade to Froyo from Sprint when it comes out would i have any problems? I know i'd lose root, but my phone won't brick or anything right?

    I came from an HTC Touch Diamond, and it never got an update, but I flashed some 30~ roms to it all the time.
