myTouch 3G Slide

Heads up, myTouch 3G Slide owners. It may have taken a little longer than I'm sure most of you would've liked, but your Android 2.2 update has finally arrived. Best of all is the fact that you don't have to wait for an over the air notification to arrive, as HTC has posted the software online for users to download and install at their own leisure. You'll need at least 25MB of user data available before starting the update process and, once it's all said and done, you'll find the following enhancements:

  • Android 2.2.1 FroYo
  • Wi-Fi calling
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • USB Tethering (Internet Sharing)
  • Low storage (User Data) notification mechanism
  • Resolves issues with text and picture messaging
  • Resolves some Bluetooth compatibility issues
  • Improves compatibility with new Bluetooth devices
  • Improves stability and reliability of the device
  • Other various minor bug fixes

Last we checked, Android 2.2 had made its way to nearly two-thirds of all devices on the market, and I bet that now that the myTouch 3G Slide has gotten its own heaping helping of Froyo, that number is going to see a healthy amount of growth once again. So, myTouch 3G Slide owners, go forth and update. Just be sure to come back and how 2.2 is working out for you when you're done, k?
