    Fixed.

    Also I would expect the update to come out right before the rumored "Holiday" handset. Such as the EVO with the EVO 3D.

    I thought I saw something where HTC is still saying by the end of this month. Not sure if they mean that's when they anticipate releasing it to AT&T or if that is when it will be released by AT&T. Most likely the prior. Considering the EVO just got it last week, at least there is still some hope for the future, hopefully soon.

    Android 2.2 (Froyo) and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) are two versions of the Smartphone operating system developed by Google. Android 2.3 is the latest edition. In comparison between Android 2.2 and Android 2.3, Android 2.3 is a major release and there are number of differences between Android 2.2 and Android 2.3. Android platform was initially developed by Android Inc. Google, the internet giant acquired Android in year 2005. Basically Android did not start from scratch; it was developed from the versions of Linux kernel.

    Android 2.2 though mostly a stable system, had two revisions. Android 2.2 (Froyo) Rev 1.0 was released in May 2010 and Rev. 2.0 was released in July 2010. Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) was released on 6th Dec 2010. There are a lot of improvements and new features included in Gingerbread. Of course Android 2.3 is a major release. However Android 2.2 was a minor release, speed improvement was brought in with the integration of Chrome V8 JavaScript engine and JIT optimization, Wi-Fi hotspot feature was added and a new clean UI with tip widget and app market widget was introduced and some of the other app widgets were given a facelift.

    A considerable number of new features were introduced in Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), that include new UI themes, redesigned keyboards, new copy and paste functionality, improved power management, better application management, new download manager, NFC (Near Field Communication), support for VoIP/SIP calls, new Camera application for accessing multiple cameras and supports extra large screens.

    Update: The latest version of Android platform is 2.3.3 (see Table_ 03 for additional features).

    Kernel:

    Android 2.2 – Linux Kernel 2.6.32

    Android 2.3 – Linux Kernel 2.6.35

    Networking:

    Android 2.2 supports Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi. On top of these, Android 2.2 supports Wi-Fi hotspot functionality that can connect 6 devices. In the sense, you can use Android 2.2 phone as a wireless broadband router.

    Android 2.3(Gingerbread), in addition to all existing features, supports for NFC (Near Field Communication) which is a high speed data communication mechanism operates in high frequency within a short range (10 cm).

    Communication:

    In addition to standard voice calling, Android 2.3 supports for SIP audio and video calling. If you have a good 3G or Wi-Fi connection and a SIP account you can make internet calling. It breaks the boundary of regionalist concept and flies in the global domain.

    Power Management:

    Power Management is one the critical tasks in these kind of Mobile operating systems. Even if you have all these fancy features, if the battery life of the device is couple of hours, then there is no use in the added features. Android 2.3 handles it in a better way than Android 2.2. Here in 2.3 the OS manages the applications and daemon application which are running at the background and closes the unnecessary applications.

    Android 2.2 (Froyo) supports the following features:

    Integration of Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine into the Browser application
    Advanced Microsoft Exchange support
    Wi-Fi hotspot functionality
    USB Tethering
    Voice dialling and contact sharing over Bluetooth
    Support for file upload fields in the Browser application
    Animated GIFs supported in browser.
    Adobe Flash 10.1 supported
    Support for extra high DPI screens

    Android 2.2 had two revisions. Android 2.2.1 was the first revision released in May 2010. Android 2.2.1 included some improvements and bug fixes. Improvements were mainly on Gmail application and Exchange Active Sync. It also received an update to Twitter and refreshed weather widget. Android 2.2.2 was released in June 2010. It was released mainly to address the email bug that randomly forward the text messages in the inbox. The email bug randomly select a recipient from the contact list and forward a random message in the inbox on its own. This bug was fixed with the Android 2.2.2 update.

    Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) supports the following features in addition to existing 2.2 features:

    New user interface design with new themes (Black themes save power)
    Extra Large Screen Size supported
    SIP Communication Supported (SIP Video and Audio Calling, In an operator point of view, this is feature will decrease their voice calling revenue where as user can call each other for lower rates or even free if they have good data connection)
    Supports for NFC (High Frequency High Speech Data Transfer in short range)
    Support for WebM/VP8 video playback, and AAC audio encoding
    New audio effects such as reverb, equalization, headphone virtualization, and bass boost
    Improved Copy and Paste functionality
    Redesigned Multi Touch Software Keyboard
    Audio, graphical, and input enhancements for game developers
    New sensors support (i.e gyroscope)
    Download manager for long running HTTP downloads
    Enhanced support for native code
    Improved power management and application control
    Support for multiple cameras

    HTC Sense already offers better power management and application control, as well as improved copy and paste. The Inspire also has the audio enhancements with headphones plugged in.

    Not really. My phone on Stock Sense still lasts about 4-5 hours with moderate use, and is dead the next morning after a 100% charge.

    The screen can not control its power hungry self!

    but, when I root it, the power management is ofter better, well, once it has a ROM installed.

    Yeah and the battery is considerably smaller than many high end smartphones. Don't understand the thought process that went into that.. or lack of thought.

    That has horrible. My phone is stock and I once used it for about five hours straight non stop before it dropped below 30%. Nothing intense, just web browsing and a simple game. With moderate usage, I usually get like 8-10 hours and with light usage 12-14 hours.
