HTC’s released a pair of minor (and uninspiring) maintenance upgrades for their Legend and Wildfire. There’s no changelog to be had, but we’re hearing that the downloads aren’t really that big, and nothing noticeable has changed. Many are wondering if they are precursors for a forthcoming Froyo update, but there’s really no way to tell. We can only go based on the realization that they both received upgrades almost at the exact same time. Settings > About Phone > System Software Updates to check and see if yours is ready to download. [SweDroid via Androinica]
