HTC Incredible getting Android 2.2 next week Citing Verizon sources, Mashable has said that HTC Droid Incredible users will begin to receive Android 2.2 (Froyo) OTA during the next week, starting on Wednesday.
Those same Verizon team members already have Froyo installed on their devices, meaning the update is ready for consumer consumption.

Since the start of August, the Nexus One the HTC EVO 4G and the original Motorola Droid have updated to 2.2. Additionally, the Droid 2 has launched with the updated software already installed.

Froyo brings a 450 percent performance boost over 2.1, native support for Flash 10.1, USB and Wi-Fi tethering, Apps2SD and cloud sync.

A few other phones, such as the Dell Streak, Motorola Droid X, HTC MyTouch 3G Slide and Samsung Captivate have all had 2.2 promised but with no set timetable.

sounds good but they are already talking about 3.0

Just because 3.0 will be out before the end of the year, that does not mean that anyone will be able to get it. Android is kind of a pain like that.

...It is almost like if your windows computer refused to upgrade to windows 7 because your ISP is comcast, or because your computer was made by Dell.
