A little change of pace here at BlogsDNA. There’s been a lot of iPhone news the last few days, but haven’t forgotten about the rest of the tech world, including Android related news. And some good news at that for awaiting T-Mobile myTouch 3G users. Looks like there will be an upgrade coming down the pipe, but it won’t be in a Eclair flavor. How does Froyo sound?
A little digging around by TmoNews, uncovered some info that points to a very big upgrade to the newly released Android 2.1, otherwise known as Froyo. With HTC making announcements about what new Android phones would be seeing a Froyo upgrade, myTouch 3G owners were very much left off that initial list. As part of T-Mobile’s “No phone left behind” initiative, the company is planning on upgrading all versions of the myTouch. That includes the original, Fender, myTouch v1.2, and the new myTouch Slide, all of which will getting a some form of Android 2.2.
I guess T-Mobile is planning on skipping Android 2.1 altogether, which seems like the logical choice. Most myTouch owners have been patiently waiting for a final word on a Eclair update, especially after T-Mobile executive, Andrew Sherrard, hinted towards a full Android 2.1 upgrade, that would include HTC’s Espresso Sense UI.
Nothing is set in stone, regarding either upgrade, but this latest uncovered T-Mobile flyer is potentially the best piece of evidence we’ve seen so far regarding any upgrade for the myTouch series. We don’t have an official date for you just yet, but I’ve got my eye open for one. One last thing, there is still no word on the G1’s status, but I don’t think the G1 will be seeing a Froyo update. There’s just no way to know.
