HTC Droid Incredible for Verizon Getting Android 2.2 on September 1st, Rumors Suggest

With the Motorola Droid 2 having launched with 2.2, and the original Motorola Droid having received at least two different OTA updates for Froyo over the last few weeks, there's plenty of people out there wondering when the Droid Incredible, manufactured by HTC, will get the prodigal update. Considering other HTC devices featuring Sense UI, like Sprint's EVO 4G, have already received their official update, people are beginning to scratch their head. And after plenty of other rumors, here's a new one to whet your appetite for at least a little while.

A tipster has suggested to Droid-Life that the Incredible's update to Froyo is actually coming next week, and will begin its roll out starting September 1st. While an OTA update isn't specifically mentioned, we can probably safely assume that's how the update will happen. The source also mentions that the Verizon marketing team is already preparing to start pumping out new Incredible commercials next week, to promote the device's new features.

Those features include 720p HD video recording, better voice calls, and 3G mobile hotspot. Nothing new, as we've heard plenty of those features listed in the past. We're not looking forward to all the bloatware that's supposedly coming along for the ride, too, but beggar's can't be choosers, we imagine. If this does indeed turn out to be true, we should start seeing leaked documents outlining the update process soon enough, so stay tuned. Though, we don't think anyone's going to start holding their breath quite yet.
