    By that time we'll have gingerbread. I dunno why Google and HTC dont work together so that HTC can get the updates out in a timely manner.

    i bet it's the same as the hero they will SAY we'll get 2.2 until gingerbread is announced and then they'll say gingerbread and get it right before Hot Fudge is announced and then we'll be begging for that

    Love the PCWorld article in the top post:

    "The EVO 4G is the phone most frequently pitted up against Apple's new iPhone 4 (hint: the EVO wins)"

    Android 2.2 will make the best ... best EVER !

    Yea I posted in one the iPhone 4 vs. EVO threads...think the one about the Engadget poll.

    I want to see a Poll of EVO + Froyo against iPhone 4...now that is a real battle in which is the better phone.

    Come on HTC, dont hold this up...its not all Sprint, because I remember WebOs updates were not being held up too long.

    I can see you are new here by your join date. Just a heads up, those articles are false 99.9% of the time. These gadget sites usually have no clue, but thanks.

    I'm here to learn and have to start somewhere. :D

    PS - I wasn't the only one taken in...

    But it seems everyone is simply taking "2nd half of 2010" very aggressively.

    I'm watching the keynotes on youtube for myself.

    I hope Froyo is out by the end of the summer. If they're planning a Q4 release then they might as well as release Gingerbread instead.

    I'm actually more concerned with HTC fixing the 30fps cap than having Froyo.

    What? Sprint skip a major Android OS upgrade? Thats NEVER happened! My Hero has every major...oh wait :p

    I really cant see this happening since the N1 doesnt even have it yet and its already mid June.

    I don't care about the other 'features' that Froyo will bring. I want my phone to display 30fps. Pokemon Emerald should NOT studder on this phone.

    Yes I play pokemon. It's the shiz nat. If you want to flame and hate on me for that, it's because you don't play it. ;)

    The link that you posted to said "within six months" which means anytime between now and December. And with the Evo selling like crazy and being the top Android device right now, I'm sure they're wanting to get 2.2 out there as quickly as possible.

    Being Google gave away the Evo at I/O and is now considered their flagship device, I would look for Froyo sometime this summer.

    Froyo is supposed to be out in July, it was even talked about at the Google I/O. July last for 31 days though so don't get your hopes up for a release in a couple weeks however I think end of July beginning of August are pretty realistic expectations ;)

    If I was in charge at sprint and google, I would plan the release of Froyo for the EVO on June 24'th...

    Has sprint themselfs made any statement on it? I wouldn't take any date with a gain of salt, unless it came right from sprint or MAYBE HTC, although I don't think it's up to HTC to determine when Froyo comes out for the Evo.

    LOL trust me, I had a Hero as well and know the non-routine. Sprint will and won't make statements about when the update will arrive. "We will release the update during the second half of the last quarter sometime after today." HTC will and won't say they are at fault. Hopefully I'm wrong this time and they won't let the EVO fall into the sinking flagship territory the Hero ended up in. :eek:
