HTC EVO 4G To Get Froyo Update, HTC Hero and Samsung Moment Excluded by Sprint
By on June 25th, 2010

Here is some good news and bad news for Sprint customers. HTC EVO 4G is set to receive and update in near future. However, the bad news is that HTC Hero and Samsung Moment will not be getting a Froyo update, from Sprint at-least.

Also any future devices which are launched with 2.1 will receive an Android 2.2 update too. So if you are a HTC Hero or Samsung Moment user, you can kiss goodbye to Flash 10.1 and other goodies packed in Froyo, unless of course you root your phone and install the Froyo ROM yourself.

The announcement to this effect was made by a Sprint employee on their community blog. It reads as such (emphasis added):

Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 in near future

As work on finalizing the software is under way, Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 in the near future.

Sorry for any confusion created when we initially made this announcement.   HTC EVO 4G will receive the 2.2 update, Samsung Moment and HTC Hero will not.   Future devices launching with 2.1 also will be updated to 2.2

With the Android 2.2 upgrade, customers can expect improvements to include the following benefits: updates to user interface, improved EAS Support, improved browser performance, including Flash 10x Support, voice dialing over Bluetooth and application storage on external memory.

So that’s about it then, Sprint has officially kicked out HTC Hero and Samsung Moment users out of their update radar. What do you think about this announcement.
