With all the recent waves of Android 2.2 updates and announcments rolling out this past week, it wouldn't be surprising to see another handset receive the FroYo update, but it appears that unfortunately, the myTouch 3G Slide will not be one of them. TmoNews has it from an unnamed source that the device will receive an update starting August 4th and running to the 19th.
TmoNews believes the update, unfortunately, "has no relation to an expected Froyo 2.2 update sometime down the road."
Below is the official word posted on TmoNews:
Beginning August 4, T-Mobile will send an over-the-air (OTA) update to myTouch 3G Slide customers, which will provide a number of benefits, including increased battery performance and enhancements to software features such as Faves Gallery and Genius Button. The update will be sent to customers in staggered waves beginning August 4 and we anticipate all customers will receive it by August 19.
Phandroid adds that "some of you are just itching for FroYo (and we know HTC’s committed to bringing it to all phones released in 2010) but you’ll just have a while longer to wait."
