Ozcarguide. :rolleyes: These guys remind me of a quote from a famous scientist, talking about a less-than-stellar scientific paper he was reviewing:

Everyone says there's going to be a huge delay to update SenseUI for 2.2, does everyone really believe that HTC has had no prerelease access to 2.2? I mean, the vast majority of new Android phones are made by HTC, I would think if anyone would have 2.2 roms to test on, they would. The changes between 2.1 to 2.2 aren't nearly as significant as the changes between 1.5/1.6 to 2.1, I would imagine it really wouldn't take all that much to get SenseUI updated. If anything, getting 2.2 roms out to the EVO and Incredible would be their highest priority, considering they just launched/ are launching soon, and not having the latest version of Android on such flagship phones would be a competitive disadvantage again other manufacturers such as Motorola. Of course, everyone seems to treat the Nexus One as if it was made directly by Google instead of HTC.

That's what I've been saying. HTC surely has a development release to work on.
We're only assuming Sense for 2.1 wouldn't be compatible with 2.2.
Either way OZcar agreed with me, maybe I'm the source so it'll be wrong.
We'll see Froyo when Gingerbread is released.Evo4G. Now with more Internet.

Well we will know more after the Google I/O.
I would think as software developers that google would want their software being tested by the actual manufactures before they released it. Atleast that is what microsoft and other software devs do with there software. It just isn't as hush hush as google's stuff.By By AT&T, I have Me an EVO. To me, the Phone of all Phones.
Sae's Apps My EVO is sporting: CM7.1.

I dunno if it is sprint as much as it was more the 1.5 to 2.1 jump that the Hero and Moment. I say this because when i had the pre I was getting updates well before verizon and any other carrier for that matter. Either way 2.2 on the EVO would be amazing but 2.1 with flash light is great from my stand point too

This makes some business sense. Google and Sprint both know iPhone HD or whatever they are going to call it is right around the corner. What better way to add some late buzz around the 4G prior to launch then to announce that it will upgrade to FroYo. This is a win-win-win for Sprint, Google, and HTC.
I'd still bet against it, mind you, but it could happen.

I'm hoping that at Thursday's I/O keynote, they make an announcement that Froyo is currently being updated, over-the-air, to Nexus One phones. And then, that the EVO will have an OTA update available when we buy it on the 4th. 2.1 to 2.2 should not require a lot of changes, as did a 1.x to a 2.x, so I'm hoping that the approval process by HTC and Sprint will be short.

If I were Dan Hesse and Sprint....
This would be "part of the plan". Everyone is spot on. HTC and Google are best friends and the updates to Sense likely are already done. It'll probably push to the Nexus today at I/O and get a bunch of good "tech" press (read: free advertising). Then, oh, just a few short weeks later, BOOM! it pushes to the Evo on activation as speculated = delighted customers, raving reviews by tech blogs etc (I know they're already coming out using the current build...having 2.2 is just reason to "review" it again, eh?), and get a ton of good free press again from all the digital channels.
I think this is an ace in the hole and I'm optimistic. They'd be very very smart to make a huge splash on all fronts with this product launch, and 2.2 at launch is an easy way to make that happen. Ironic they're launching the phone 2 weeks after Google I/O, and just in time for Premier customers that bought Pre's to upgrade??? I think not. Sounds well planned out if this is how it truly goes down. +1 to you Sprint for product launch strategy.
