    Indeed, 2.2 will be pushed Q1 of 2011, But we may get it sooner. Currently I know one person is working on a Froyo -> ascend port. So, something to look forward to.

    Where are you getting this from? I would like to see the source for "Q1 of 2011 2.2 release" and a dev working on a early Froyo release. :D

    I blog for a living, So I have 'the skinny' the majority of the time, there's a developer working on a froyo port for the ascend. Next, if you care to open your eyes and look at the thread UnSmartPhone has posted here, you'll clearly see that the 'administrator' we know what that is right... has said the update will come in Quarter 1 of 2011.

    As said, open your eyes, the person who made the statement is ' lo1983ol' which, is clearly stated, is an administrator..

    I checked again, and I don't see where it says "Administrator." Sorry if I miss it, but please point it out.

    This is the most credible source I have found on the Ascend upgrade info:

    Ascend Upgrades in future

    Snippet:

    "The Ascend features Android 2.1 with future updates to Android Froyo and Gingerbread planned as well as a 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive touch display, 3.5mm headphone jack, [COLOR=#c69c6d !important][FONT=inherit !important][COLOR=#C69C6D ! important][FONT=inherit ! important]Bluetooth[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] with stereo audio support, 3.2 megapixel camera with video capture and Wi-Fi radio."

    The question is, how well will this update work on the ascend anyway?

    I have read that the Ascend doesn't have dedicated graphics unit. This is why it is cheaper than the Sanyo Zio even though the Zio has 1.6. So Froyo MIGHT not work well, specifically the Froyo Gallery app.

    Where did you hear this? Just yesterday a Cricket agent told me the Kyocera Zio was getting 2.1 this month and that the Ascend is 'probably' getting Froyo sometime this quarter but could not guarantee it.

    I hope you were referring to the Ascend instead. :)

    Well I have a rumor two that we might be getting the upgrade today but still no upgrade unless I'm checking wrong. You just go to settings> About Phone>Online Updates. Right?

    I think that is correct but then again we might get a popup saying the update is available. I'm interested in how they will tell us to install it. If you read the manual it gives specific instructions for that but I'm not sure if it will all be necessary. I wonder if having your phone rooted could prevent one from getting notification of the update. Surely not! :)

    As far as I know now, it was pushed back about a month, but that is just a rumor.
