Droid Incredible OTA Delayed to Include Android 2.2 (FroYo) Beginning of August?


Some of you HTC Droid Incredible users may have been upset that the rumored July 16th rollout date came and went, but it could’ve been for good (if not absolutely great) reasoning: the update could be delayed to include FroYo as one of the changelog items.


BGR‘s received a tip (the tipster’s association to HTC or Verizon hasn’t been disclosed) that the update we detailed earlier was actually the first part of a two-part process for introducing Android 2.2 (not unlike what we’ve seen before with upgrades to other HTC Sense devices). If the tipster’s to be believed, they’ll be consolidating the two updates into one sometime before mid-August.

  • Froyo
  • 802.11 n
  • 3G Mobile Hot Spot
  • HTC Widget: Email
  • HTC Widget: News
  • EAS Updates
  • 720p Video Recording
  • Amazon MP3
  • Skype
  • My Verizon

That would explain the lack of OTA love going out to all of Verizon’s Droid Incredible owners if they did indeed change their mind at the last second. Droid-Life – a proven source for trustworthy Verizon Droid device information – claims to have already received the first part of the supposed two-step process which led us to believe everyone else would be getting it just as soon. If BGR’s sources are correct, then the wait will have ultimately been well worth it. We’ll just have to wait until the transition into August begins to see if all of this is indeed the case.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    If this was a bonafide upgrade, why wouldn’t it be announced by Verizon Wireless? It would be more ammo in their PR campaign against you know who (rhymes with Snapple).

    Ammo for what? PR for a phone that nobody can buy?…I have mine though ;)

  5. Hahah, I have to agree with the pessimisim in the other posts. I’m pretty sure we won’t get it before the original droid does and there’s no signs of that yet either!

  6. Please include more of the bluetooth stack. Make may hands free dialer work. (It did work on the Droid. Not on the Incredible.

  7. We can only hope that the HTC Mail application is fixed so that self-signed certificates work and that Verizon’s own POP email doesn’t keep popping mail it already has retrieved.

  8. Where’s the froyo update for the original Droid?
