It’s official folks. Android 2.2, namely Froyo, will begin rolling out to HTC Wildfire handsets across Europe this very week.
HTC confirmed the good news via its Facebook page this morning, ending a long and arduous wait for Wildfire owners to get on board with the semi-latest version of the Android operating system, which we reported last month would be released within weeks.
The phone maker said: “We know many of you have been asking for information about an update for your Wildfire. Well, we have good news! Android 2.2 (aka Froyo) on Wildfire is scheduled to begin rolling out this week in Europe, reaching all areas of the world by February.
“Thanks for your patience as these updates roll out; we think you’ll enjoy the final product.”
It may have taken a bit longer than anticipated, but at least it’s here and just in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, the wait isn’t over for some those living in the more far flung areas of the globe but keep faith and you’ll soon be able to join the party.
Yummy features of Froyo include HD video recording in 720p, USB and Wi-Fi tethering and support for Adobe’s Flash Player 10.1 for watching clips and playing games through the web browser.
As ever, we recommend performing a backup before installing the update and using a Wi-Fi connection where possible as it is a fairly large download.
