    Update 7/19/2010 @7:40PM EST: Verizon Wireless Tech confirms BGR's FroYo report via Twitter:

    Update: 7/19/2010 @4:08PM EST: AndroidGuys is reporting that the original OTA is still rolling out, and all Incredible devices will receive the update in the near future. This is not FroYo. Repeat, this is not Froyo. FroYo is still expected in the coming weeks.


    Rumors are swirling about the Incredible's latest OTA, which started to roll out this past weekend. Did the roll-out to a screeching halt, and if so, why? Well, BGR is reporting that the most recent OTA will indeed be halted, because HTC and Verizon are planning something much bigger: FroYo for the Incredible. That's right. According to BGR, the FroYo update is closer than we expected, and should arrive either by the end of July or the beginning of August. Other additions planned for the next Incredible OTA include 802.11n WiFi capability, 720p recording, and some new widgets. Check out the original report of the BGR "ninja" below:

    This may only be a rumor at this time, but the "ninja" was certainly convinced we will see FroYo on the Incredible shortly. I guess we can put aside those notions that HTC would be abandoning the Incredible! So, what do you guys think?

    Well, if this is legit than it's great news. Even if this is true we're still talking about Verizon here so Jul/Aug could easily turn into Oct/Nov.

    Didnt' even think of that. That would pretty crazy if they released a Sense UI version of Froyo before the base Froyo for the Droid. Can't say I'd be upset though. :icon_ banana:

    I wouldn't complain all too much. I do enjoy updates on my devices.

    I never update any applications because, without Froyo, there is no life with the constant updates.

    I would imply from this that the Droid will now roll out faster than Aug 7.

    Why? The # of D1's out there dwarf the # of Dinc's by a significant number. Updating the Inc's and X's before the D1's make sense in terms of rolling out with a definitive end date. The D1's update will probably take a while and congest their networks...
