HTC Evo 4G Android 2.2 Update Will Add Flash

You must have heard the news that Sprint and HTC are rolling out that all important Android 2.2 update for HTC EVO 4G owners next week, we have covered it previously here in case you missed it.

Thanks to a recent article by the folks over at zdnet.com for more on that HTC apparently posted a version of the update which may well have been for testing. The news was published on Twitter and was grabbed.

The firmware update turns out to have the same version number as that on the upcoming release version and was successfully installed onto a HTC EVO 4G. Some time later HTC tweeted that this version was not the final one and should not be installed.

Have a look at the video below and as you can see the update includes Flash 10.1 and will allow Popcap Games to be played in the browser. The official update should be with you within the next few days and is said to bring lots with it including Gmail account switcher.

    Got the FROYO update OTA for my EVO at about 9:00 pm Mon. Install went very smooth and the entire process of downloading and installing took about 15 minutes. I have only had a little while to play with it but can already see that it seems to have speeded up the browser. The flashlight app is cool….but many of us already had an app for that (minus the picture of a flashlight on the screen). There is an app sharing program that I had not heard about and that is a plus and should be pretty cool. I have not had a chance to set up automatic app updates yet but that is something everone will be glad to have. Frozen Yogurt has finally arrived and I look forward to playing around with it and getting more familiar with it tomorrow. Enjoy everyone !

    Sprint already has one of the most reliable 3G data networks in the U.S., so if you want a pure data experience it is one of the top choices. If you add the rapidly-expanding Clearwire WiMAX network to it (Sprint is a Clearwire partner), then youve got access to the nations fastest mobile broadband (in select cities) coupled with a reliable and widespread 3G data network. The one drawback to that is that 4G access is a mandatory $10 add-on to your Sprint wireless bill for the HTC EVO, even if you dont live in an area currently served by 4G and rarely (or never) travel to a 4G city.
