    Well that sucks considering Gingerbread is going to be released at the end of the year.

    Yeah, I was thinking of that as I wrote the thread. Perhaps I should remove the exclamation point from the thread title then? ;):eek:

    Let us pray to whatever God you believe in that "before Christmas" is like, 2 weeks from now. :p

    Too little too late HTC. Please get on the ball and get us our updates. Not sure why a small team of techs in their basements can whip out a working 2.2 ROM in days using a backdoor approach yet a huge company like HTC takes 6 months. WTF?

    Use some of that 1.88 billion you just made and hire some good programmers.

    Those basement techs don't have to worry about millions of customer complaints/returns due to bricked phones if they don't get it right.

    That isn't even news of any kind. In the article he says we wont be seeing a six-month but then suggests Christmas (5 months away).

    Sounds to me like a typical PR comment. Doesn't tell me anything about when we get froyo.

    Very true. I just thought with all the resources and money HTC has they could have whipped something out faster than 6 months. They have all the correct drivers and code to work with so where is the speed bump? Sure there is R&D but this is not a new phone. They must have GOBS of data regarding every aspect of the phone.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, I don't disagree with your sentiments. 5 months is an eternity compared to the several weeks I was hoping for. But like a previous poster mentioned, this guy didn't really say much of anything at all. For all we know, it could be weeks away. I guess we wait for the dawn.

    The Nexus One will probably have the 3.0 before we get 2.2.

    Funny how T-Mobile (worst network in the nation - 2 state experience) gets the flashy updates first!

    The timeline of the next updates will definitely affect what brand I upgrade to next phone.

    The ball is in your court HTC.

    Motorola has a nice butt too. Don't think I won't cheat on you.

    --

    If Vanilla 2.2 is so easy to update, why don't they do that first - that way people who don't need sense can use froyo - and if people still want sense - they will have to wait for the more difficult update?

    Indeed. The only missing component is the voice BT for me. A biggie, considering I got a ticket last month (cellphone related). :rolleyes:

    And you think I talk a lot, here! ;)

    I'm guessing the christmas time frame is more for the MyTouch 3g.

    Granted, when a stable Froyo rom comes out I'll be tempted to flash.

    Yeah a stable Froyo rom for the Incredible and I'll flash in a second. :D I'm sure we will get it sooner, but just a longer wait.

    I am reluctant on this. Anyone who owned an Eris would agree with me. It will probably come out later then their official announcement

    this will be my only HTC Sense phone b/c of this issue

    whatever I buy next will be as vanilla Android as possible so it gets fast updates

    from what I understand, Google would rather not have the custom interfaces out there, so hopefully this issue will go away in time
