The HTC Legend has not been as fortunate as the HTC Desire because it still runs on Android 2.1; in fact users are desperate for the Froyo update and happily HTC and carriers are set to deliver over the coming weeks. This is the first time HTC has mentioned the update for the legend specifically, before they have only mentioned that all their handsets would receive the update in 2010.
HTC sent out a press release via their Facebook page informing users that the HTC Legend will receive the long awaited Froyo update within the next few weeks if you own a sim-free/unlocked handset. However if you are locked to a carrier the update will be a little later, all depending on your specific carrier.
No further or detailed information was given which is understandably a little frustrating and confusing to Legend owners. The main reason is probably down to deadlines; if no deadline is set then they can’t possibly be late no matter when they release it – a clever yet devious plan.
Which ever way you look at it the announcement has to be seen as progress as at least we know the update is in the pipeline – finally.
