Android 2.2 arrives on HTC Legend

Taiwanese mobile phone manufacturer HTC has unveiled it is rolling out the upgrade to Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 for their HTC Legend handsets, from today onwards.

HTC announced the update via Facebook yesterday, from their HTCuk account with a message that reads “Good news for HTC Legend users. The Android 2.2 update for HTC Legend will begin to roll out across Europe from tomorrow”.

Android 2.2 is first being rolled out to SIM free and unlocked handsets, with a view to deliver the update to all mobile phone networks carrying the device.

Froyo arrives in the form of an OTA (Over The Air) update, which could be just under 20MB where it’s preferable to download the new platform over WIFI instead of the mobile phone network.

HTC’s Legend shipped with Android 2.1 in March this year, with a 3.2-inch AMOLED touch screen, a 5 megapixel camera whilst being powered by a 600Mhz processor – with their own HTC Sense overlay to the Google mobile OS.

The HTC Legend is exclusive to Vodafone in the UK where some users have already reportedly seen the benefits of Froyo, as that network has rolled out an update earlier this month.
