HTC EVO 4G Gets Android 2.2 Thanks to Developers

There's got to be something said about the developers out there, and how serious they take the Android platform. It's a beautiful thing, if you ask us. It should be no surprise to anyone out there that the EVO 4G, manufactured by HTC and heading to Sprint here in under a week, is already getting some Android 2.2 goodness, despite the fact neither the upgraded Operating System, nor the handset it's being featured on here in this article, are officially released to the public. But, sure enough, the developers do what they want, and the rest of us get to reap the rewards of their hard work.

Obviously, after the EVO 4G got rooted a couple weeks back, people started immediately questioning how long it would be before one build or another of Android 2.2, or Froyo if you prefer, made it to the Sprint Network's premiere handset. Not long at all, apparently. And while the OS is basically in as rudimentary a form as possible, it just goes to show that it won't take developers long to make sure that it's usable for everyone sooner than later. Basically, the main question is: how long after the official release of both Android 2.2 and the EVO will it be before it gets an unofficial upgrade to 2.2? Check out the video below to see everything you ever wanted to see, if the only thing you care about is the EVO and Android 2.2
