Earlier this year, HTC confirmed that all of its 2010 Android smartphones will receive an Android 2.2/Froyo upgrade but so far, only the HTC Desire has received it while in the meantime the company has launched the Android 2.2-powered HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z as well as a couple of Windows Phone 7 smartphones. Now, HTC unveiled via Facebook that it's working on an Android 2.2/Froyo upgrade for the HTC Legend, which has been progressing - according to HTC - quite well, and in the coming weeks those with unbranded HTC Legends should be receiving the update. As always, for those of you with carrier-branded versions of the HTC Legend there "will be a slightly longer wait".
As always, once HTC has finalized the update within HTC, the software must then go through the appropriate approval process at each carrier that carries the HTC Legend on their network (for further information, please read the::unwired's background article about how firmware updates are developed, tested and rolled-out).
Sure, "in the coming weeks" can mean everything from within the next 14 days up anytime January and for carrier branded versions it can/will take even longer. However, HTC tries to make some hope by saying "(...) our team is close to finishing the update and will then work with individual carriers for approval".
Anyway, yet no official word by HTC about an Android 2.2/Froyo upgrade for the HTC Wildfire which was also launched this year but also released with Android 2.1 only.
