AndroidSPIN is reporting that they have confirmed a rumor that the myTouch 3G Slide will be receiving an update to Android 2.2 as early as next week. The update will first be sent out to T-Mobile employee phones for testing, with it making its way to the average Joe’s slide at a yet unknown date. This jives with a statement made last week by HTC naming the Slide as one of the phones that should be getting the update before the end of the year.
Considering that Google is just getting the Froyo code out to OEMs and that an update proper hasn’t even occurred for the Nexus One, I’m a bit skeptical that the update will make it to the end-user anytime soon. If anything, this at least confirms the update to Android 2.2 can be expected if you plan on purchasing the Slide next week.
