The carrier confirmed via its Twitter feed that it plans to release an over the air Android operating system upgrade to HTC’s budget blower.
Asked by a follower when it’s due to arrive the network replied “very soon” and announced it will further “update everyone this week”.
Android 2.2 will add a host of new features to the Wildfire. Among these is tethering - the option to use the handset as a Wi-Fi mobile broadband dongle to get online with multiple 3G enabled devices.
Owners can also look forward to improved camera capabilities (think: 720p video capture), performance enhancements and support for installing apps to a microSD card.
