HTC EVO 4G and DROID Incredible: Android 2.2 Froyo Delay

We recently learned that the Nexus One is to get an upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo, much sooner than other Android smartphones. A number of our readers wondered why Google were upgrading a handset that the likes of Verizon and Sprint are dropping in favor of the HTC Droid Incredible and the HTC EVO 4G respectively?

Google do have a good reason, one that you may not like. It seems that upgrading the OS on other Android handsets is because of their custom HTC Sense UI interface. The Nexus One has the advantage of being totally designed from the ground up by Google so upgrading its Android mobile operating system is a much simpler task.

We have heard that Android 2.2 Froyo will make Nexus One 5x faster. This is certainly great news for owners of this failing handset, but owners of the Incredible and those considering purchasing the EVO 4G — released on June 4 will wonder how long they have to wait for the faster and smoother Android 2.2 Froyo?

The reason why Sprint and Verizon have dropped the Nexus One is a simple one, the handset has had a number of issues with 3G connectivity — something that Google said they are unable to fix.

Will you still purchase a Nexus One for Android 2.2 Froyo, or wait until it becomes available on either the HTC EVO 4g or DROID Incredible?
