There has been a lot of speculation on whether the HTC Legend, Desire and Wildfire released this year would get an Android 2.2 upgrade. HTC has recently made an official statement on the release of Android 2.2 upgrade for these handsets putting away the entire outcry.


The primary problem that handset manufacturers are facing in porting Android 2.2 upgrade is providing their custom UI on top of the Android interface. This update is indicative of the fact that HTC has been successful in porting its Sense UI and we can expect to see the Froyo update coming on a series of handsets.

HTC Desire is probably the most prized possession of HTC currently and this update will make optimal use of its powerful hardware. The Froyo update for Nexus One was rolled out earlier this week and is the first phone, which got hit by it. HTC Evo 4G was also given the 2.2 update. However, numerous reports of phones being bricked caused the provider Sprint in the US to pull out the update temporarily.

Another phone to watch out for the Android 2.2 update is the Samsung Galaxy S, which managed a number of positive reviews across the blogosphere. Although Samsung has not released any official statement, it is expected to get the update this year itself.
