Froyo Arrives on the HTC Droid Incredible!

HTC has just confirmed via Twitter that today will indeed be the day that owners of Verizon’s Droid Incredible will finally get a taste of Froyo, as an official update rolls out across the US.  This announcement comes amid strong speculaton that such an update was imminent, and by the time you read this article the package should be available for download to your device.

Although unofficial, Froyo-based ROMs have been available for the Droid Incredible for some time, the official release will see much better integration of the new Android release with the phone’s hardware in addition to HTC’s appealing Sense interface.

Among the improvements, are the ability to record video in 720p resolution, support for 802.11n specification WiFi and Flash 10.1 in the improved browser.

Although the update should find its own way to your phone, you can force your Incredible to check for updates by selecting Settings, About phone and then System software updates, then by pressing the ‘check now’ button.

You can follow discussion about the official release in the Droid Incredible section.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
