    my guess is incentives will be same for new or existing (assuming you're up for the upgrade.)

    I just edited my post 4587 to include quotes from Android and Me and from the Neowin article. The main thing about the fist one is their guess is that Froyo will come out on May 19th (also Flash 10.1 beta) and second article deals with how Google plans to deal with fragmentation across different Android versions.

    Nah, it means that if you get the EVO, you'll get "high style" if you didn't already have it!...LOL.

    I'd imagine the Nexus One would first receive the upgrade, with the EVO following very closely behind.

    Btw, anyone read about JIT integration in Froyo as that article mentioned? I'm not a developer, so I can't make full sense of it, but it sounds like it could lead to a big improvement on future operating systems and apps as well.

    Any of our more knowledgeable members know anything more/can explain more about it?

    no, this evo had 2.1 and the only reason the fm tuner didn't work is because it needs headphones to act as the antenna. watch the video. it comes up in the first 40 second. evo will ship with 2.1

    Sorry. My claim was that IF FMRadio is Froyo only, then then EVO has FroYo. Since the premise was false, my claim doesn't apply.

    The most recent articles say it's going to multiple carriers.

    Inside your monitor.
    The Incrdible definitely has a FM radio and it works. Phil in Androidcentrals walk through said he has used it and it works just like a regular radio, just needs headphones/speakers plugged in.

    The OS has nothing to do with WiMax, the signal is read from the radio and passed down, why would the OS not be compatible? The only thing that has to be compatible is the radio transceiver.

    Yep. It will be on all 4 major US carriers, like the Nexus One.

    Jackson, much respect to you and thanks for all the info. so far, but you got me confused with this post...

    Are you saying that the Droid Incredible does NOT support support FM Radio?

    Droid Incredible with Android 2.1 does support FM Radio (requires headphone be plugged in...)

    Video still showing time stamp when FM Radio app is shown...

    If I have misunderstood I am sorry.

    HTC devices lack an internal antenna the reason the fm tuner won't work without headphones is because the software makes a check before launching that makes sure you have headphones in so it can be used as an external antenna. Theoretically any Android device can have a fm tuner app some may lack signal if no hardware antenna was built into the phone but some were wired to use the headphones as an antenna.

    I had already had a bad case of the EVO bug, but after checking out the HD2 I need to find a detox or rehabilitation center.
