Android 2.2 might not land on the HTC Wildfire for 3 customers this month after all it seems, after the carrier cited problems with the update.
3 had pledged to push out Froyo, AKA Android 2.2, to HTC’s mid-range Android marvel before the end of January. However, with just four days left in the month, the carrier looks increasingly unlikely to hit the deadline.
That’s an impression compounded by a Twitter update from 3. Asked by Ste_Macca for any news on the update, 3 didn’t name a date and referenced “a couple of minor problems which have caused [the] delay”.
It’s not clear what those might be. But the smart money is on the ever-present issue of getting new Android iterations to work with carrier services.
Either way, at least when it does arrive it’s well worth the wait. Features it brings to the Wildfire include better video recording at 720p, tethering and the option to save apps to microSD.
And there’s more. You’ll also get longer battery life and general performance optimisations. Not bad for free, you’d have to say.
