Hot on the heels of a fresh HTC DROID Incredible update that isn't Froyo comes a rumor of another Incredible update that actually is Froyo. Boy Genius Report has received a tip that the Incredible will be receiving Android 2.2, along with several other new features, at the end of July or beginning of August. The source got an email from HTC and passed it along to BGR, and you can see it below:
I wanted to pass along that the upcoming Incredible MR will also include Froyo (originally it was going to be two separate MRs).
We are targeting the end of the month/first part of August. As a reminder, below are the highlights:
Some of the features, like 720p video recording, were included in the update that we heard about this morning. Judging by this news, however, it sounds like Verizon may halt the current update and roll out the Froyo-packing version in the coming weeks. Whatever ends up happening, it's great to hear that Froyo will soon be coming to the Incredible. Since a lot of customers that want an Incredible haven't gotten one yet because of the crazy supply issues, it would be nice for them to immediately jump to Android 2.2 when the device is finally widely available.
