Sprint customers are largely lagging in getting the updates onto their Unlocked HTC Hero and EVO 4G which uses Sense User Interface. Even the most popular of the Sprint handset, the Samsung Moment, is really slow on getting the Android Updates. This is quite detrimental for Sprint users in the United States as unlike other carrier subscribers; they have to wait quite a long time for a release.
However Sprint, through their blog have told us that since the HTC EVO 4G has sold really well and has been well received by the customers across the board, Sprint will be doing its best to get Android updates to their phones such that their customers can be at the helm on telephone technology. There is further good news for the customers is that the new software which will be released as Android 2.2 on the HTC EVO 4G in the form of an upgrade on this phone.
Android 2.2, or what is known as Froyo, will bring in a lot of longevity to the HTC Unlocked ( EVO ) phones which otherwise have a really poor battery performance. With the Android 2.2 there is also the possibility of full flash support for the EVO 4G and hence one can get the updates for the Sense UI. It has also been reported that the Froyo enables the EVO 4G to deliver a higher performance for the customer.
Although it has already been a really long time, one can only welcome the plans for the update to the Motorola Unlocked Milestone Android 2.2. However, tactful reactions are the order of the day as ‘near future’ can be a matter of months for companies like this. Yet, according to the recent rumors which have been around regarding the EVO 4G, one can really hope for a faster launch of the Android 2.2.
