European Motorola Milestones Receiving Android 2.2 In September

There has been plently of worries in the AndroidPIT forums that the European Motorola Milestone might not receive the Android 2.2 update, even with the latest timeline released by Motorola. Today, you can put those fears to rest, as a tweet from o2myhandy, a German O2 twitter account, mentions that FroYo will be hitting the German Milestons in the middle to end of September.

Seeing as how the German Milestone is the European verison, one can assume that if O2 Germany's Milestones will be receiving Android 2.2, the other European markets' Milestones will be as well.

Phandroid is quick to note, however, that the update may take awhile for some, and may not come to other Milestone users at all:

Hopefully, those with an unlocked Milestone and those on other carriers won’t have to wait as long, but it’s a possibility (and it’s still an unfortunate possibility that we won’t see it come to light for everyone across the sea). It should at least serve as a beacon of hope for anyone that thought Motorola would completely abandon the device.

The tweet also announces that the Flipout and X10 have not yet been decided on for Android 2.2. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy S will be receiving the update to Android 2.2 in mid-September, a little earlier than what Samsung UK thought would be their release date.Finally, the Desire's update for Android 2.2 will be in the middle to end of August.

The best part is that yesterday I, I hinted that Germany might be getting the Galaxy S update before the UK does. I was hoping that an announcement similar to this would come, and it certainly seems that it will happen.

EuroDroid notes comically that "you can’t get much more HOT INFORMATION into 140 characters than that."

    That's really a pain, you need first to wait 2 month for get the 2.2 from the HTC, then you need another month from O2. Simply unacceptable.
