    I highly doubt Techcrunch would risk their credibility with a false report like that. Plus what are the motives for a false report?

    Who knows if some people really got it or not, but I am sure it will take closer to 2-3 MONTHS for our EVO's to get it. HTC said the second half of 2010 so that means October or something stupid probably.

    HTC says the second half of 2010, but that doesn't mean Sprint says the second half of 2010 :p

    while I'm extremely excited for the Evo I do believe updates are not going to be instant after google releases them. I know google said after froyo no more fragmentation, I'm just not convinced carriers will be able to keep up, especially sprint. My point is simply, I think based on this thread there are way too high of expectations and anyone who had a Hero or Moment knows that will just lead to a lot of disappointment, impatience and an over abundance of 2.2+ threads filled with endless rants.

    Well, since I am stuck with T-mobile G1 custom ROM 1.6, 2.1 Eclair will be a new experience for me.

    I have played with it with my g/f's Incredible phone. But it's good to have your own phone with the EVO.

    I don't mind waiting for Froyo since Eclair 2.1 will be new to me.

    One would hope so but let's be realistic.

    1. The N1 is branded as a Google phone and it's their flagship

    2. Froyo for the N1 didn't have to go to HTC to be modded to work w/sense

    3. Even after going to HTC, Froyo would then have to go to sprint so they can make their changes and lockdowns.

    4. Sprint has a horrible track record of releasing OS updates. From my old Mogul, to my Touch Pro, to my Touch Pro 2, to my cousins Hero each time i had to wait atleast a month after other carriers (same phone) got their updates.

    Thank God for custom Roms

    Does this mean that Nexus one will be the first phone to get future Android updates forever?

    It is Google's flagship. As long as that is the case then yes. Like I said when google finishes a new update all that has to be done is to send it OTA to their
    unlocked phones and I would assume just to the carriers on their locked down phones.

    sprint may have a horrible track record, but the evo is their new flagship, so everyone will be watching. If they update slower than other carriers, than they will once again bleed customers. If google didn't have some confidence in them, they wouldn't have promoted their phone.

    I think this also hold true for 4g. Asking customers in 3g markets to pay $10 EXTRA for a service they can't fully enjoy was bold, and puts them under a lot of pressure to role out 4g as quickly as possible.

    The Pre was Sprint's flagship device and from what I have heard (i could be wrong) it took forever for them to fix some of the problems.

    Also i'm not sure how much they would feel rushed seeing as though there are no other carriers with this phone they can just blame delays on the fact that, "Due to the advanced nature of the Evo 4G, it is taking a bit longer than expected for us to get a working update out to our customers. We are working hard with HTC to get this update to you as soon as possible."

    It's just called good business. It is the next high end Android phone that is coming out. They make money on these sales even if Sprint never releases an update.

    I am sure that Sprint may want to do these things but what they can do is a different matter. Remember for instance I'm sure that they are going to want to completely disable the WIFI tethering that comes with Froyo.

    I truly do hope that I am wrong but you have to be realistic. Now if they weren't so worried about locking features down and things like that it would be a different story. Either way I'm not bothered because I'm sure I will have Froyo on my phone within a month after I get it. With or without Sprint's help :)

    It's weird that everyone was expecting Google to "fix" the fragmentation, yet they announced nothing related to that at Google I/O.

    How exactly is Froyo supposed to fix fragmentation?

    Considering Tmo and Verizon still keep releasing lower res 480X320 devices with arm 11's (Ally and MyTouch Slide), there is no way they can, since neither of those devices will get full 2.2 and (per Adobe) can not get Flash 10.1.

    I think 2.2 will be out a week after release:D
