HTC EVO 4G owners rejoice: Froyo will soon be here!

When it comes to Android-based smartphones, the HTC EVO 4G has pretty much been the cream of the crop (that is until the Motorola Droid X came on the scene to share the spotlight). The phone features a fast 1GHz processor, large 4.3” display, front- and rear-facing cameras, and of course 4G access courtesy of Sprint's WiMAX network.

Tomorrow, however, the EVO 4G is set to get even better thanks to an Android 2.2 update according to Engadget. The update will be available tomorrow to customers that initiate the update via the phone's software update feature. The update will be pushed automatically to other EVO 4G customers starting the week of August 1.

In addition to the updates provided with Android 2.2 (Froyo), HTC also has included some new goodies of its own like the ability to use the LED flash as a flashlight and improved 720p video recording

You can read more about the Android 2.2 update for the HTC EVO 4G here.

Updated 8/2/2010 @ 8:30pm

The update is now available for download. Simply navigate to Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now to get in on the Froyo action.

Wrong half of the equation

Now HTC just needs to actually build more phones to use this on. It's still sold out on line.

I've been seriously contemplating this phone (since it's the only serious Android phone Sprint has right now). Only problems are I don't have 4G in my area, so that's kind of wasted, and to use it at work I'd have to remove/break both cameras on my shiny new $200 phone.
