Let me know your thoughts as to when you think the HTC Evo will be updated to android 2.2
You really think so? I've been hearing end of June....really dont think they are going to let I4 come out before they release the update
I think falls too late and junes too soon.. in my opinion i think their gonna release it somewhere from mid july to early august
mid july fo sho, 2.2 is a fairly easy update to apply but it still is gonna take time, i guarantee they are already working on it and i really do think after july is just gonna start pushing the little to late game
yea deff and HTC seems to always be on the ball with updates
Hopefully they will release it A.S.A.P. and not dilly, dally around with it.
Devices with Sense always take longer.
lol, tell that to Hero owners. We waited over 6 months........Hopefully HTC will realize that if they want to keep up with motorola who seems to be pushing updates like it's no one's business, they really need to support their phones and get updates out quicker. Same goes for Sprint though.
take it from me who had a cliq for the past six months.. motorola is not on top of their game.. well never mind i take that back, when it comes to the droid they deff are (thats their baby).. every other phone they leave hanging.. the cliqs been waiting for months for that 2.1 update, im just glad im getting rid of it.. and also sense probably does cause a delay in updates, so thats why the hero probably took a while, i just hope the same dosent happen to the evo
Sorry I was using the Droid as my example. That really is their baby. I hope HTC sees the EVO as theirs and follows suit.
@jebus christ.. yea hopefully. but htc seems to push out a new device everyday so they got a lot of mouths to feed ahahaha just hope we're the favorite
I believe it should come right between now and the end of the month. Would be good and smart for it to be here before the 24th, but who knows?
this is not true, the first device to get the 2.1 upgrade was already running 2.0.1 so it was a minor upgrade every other device to get the 2.1 upgrade came at roughly the same time, i think sense was up there as some of the first,
it still took the droid a while to get 2.1 and it had NOTHING but stock, and the moment got it the same time the hero did, so this whole issue i think is really non-existent and a myth, yes it would make sense but clearly motorola had a hard time getting it out quickly with only a MINOR upgrade on a STOCK android device that was the FLAGSHIP android, so i don't think it takes any longer with sense
HTC's comment on this was "most devices launched in 2010 will see a 2.2 update in the second half of 2010".
Fall seems like a reasonable expecation to me.
go the the xda-dev forums and find out for yourselves... I have a ported android 2.2 rom on my Evo, and it runs very fast.
Think HTC will do any visual changes like they have with 1.5 and 2.1? And anyways, hopefully the update comes out this summer... Would be nice.
I was under the impression that running the current 2.2. roms on the Evo stopped you using both cameras, 4G, and that WiFi was iffy.
Would love to know if this is not the case ... if 2.2's native hotspot functionality works properly (the standard Sprint Hotspot is highly problematic and unusably slow) I might not have to return the damn thing.
I hope I can get 2.2 and the free wifi hotpot that's built in, but I dunno that Sprint would let that fly.
Android 2.2 Features Announced By Google : EVDOinfo.com
Doesn't "via update" mean as in "not rooted?"
Is this Google's call to make - or HTC's - or Sprint's?
it's all of the above's call to make, mostly HTC and Sprint but seeing how the EVO is kinda a flagship for android as well i would see it in Googles best interest to help
Probably be announced right before the 30 period is up!
I think its only free wired tethering thats built in.
