HTC Legend to get Android 2.2 tomorrow

HTC Legend owners can finally get some of that tasty Android Froyo action when HTC rolls out over the upgrades to Android 2.2 starting tomorrow, December 9.

 

Launched on Android 2.1, the slinky Legend will then have access to Froyo features including Wi-Fi hotspot capability, voice navigation and the ability to save apps to its microSD memory card instead of the rather measly 512MB of onboard memory.

 

The Legend is exclusively carried by Vodafone, which made the upgrade available for its customers on November 15. Owners of the SIM-free handset will now be able to get the update by heading into the Settings menu, checking for software updates and then downloading it over a Wi-Fi or 3G connection - but the upgrade will also be pushed to handsets, which automatically check for new software every two weeks.

 

Fellow Android 2.1 handset, the mid-range Wildfire, will be eligible for its own Froyo upgrade before Christmas.

 

Meanwhile, Google has already unveiled the next upgrade, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, displayed in the new 'Google phone', the Samsung-made Nexus S.
