HTC: Only some of the handsets released in 2010 will be upgraded to Android 2.2

This was expected and it has now been confirmed by HTC that only some of their handsets released this will get an upgrade to Android 2.2 aka Froyo. On the short list are: the HTC Desire, the HTC Incredible, HTC EVO 4G and the Google Nexus One. As you can see all three devices are SnapDragon based, this is because Flash 10.1 (which is bundled in Android 2.2) requires a Cortex A8 CPU and all other Adnroid devices like the HTC Legend and HTC Wildfire are ARM11. The release of the upgrade isn’t expected until the second half of the year (at the earliest) and the EVO 4G will probably ship with Android 2.1 next month.
