HTC Droid Incredible Receiving Android 2.2 Early August?

Authored by: Douglas Carter — Jul 21, 2010

BoyGeniusReport got a tip from a Verizon Wireless employee that HTC would be sending out the Android 2.2 update for the HTC Droid Incredible at the end of July or early August. Apparently, the news came in an email from HTC, which the source then passed on over Twitter.

BoyGeniusReport writes that "the Incredible update that began rolling out this weekend will — in all likelihood — be halted, and a sexier, Froyo-inclusive update will be pushed out in the coming weeks."

As for whether the Twitter account can be trusted, MobileCrunch notes that "it’s apparently “unofficial” in that the guy on the other end is a real VZW tech rep, but the account isn’t “officially” endorsed by corporate VZW. Make of that what you will."

Here are the features coming in the update according to BoyGeniusReport:

  • Android 2.2
  • 802.11n Wi-Fi
  • 3G Mobile Hotspot
  • HTC Widgets: News, Mail
  • EAS Updates
  • 720p Video Capture
  • Amazon MP3
  • Skype
  • My Verizon

MobileCrunch mentions that "while this obviously comes as good news to owners of the handsets, don’t get your hopes up just yet: time frames for releases have a history of getting bumped, and as this wasn’t from an “officially official” source, the bumpiness seems even more possible."
