Interesting stuff going on with HTC EVO 4G, as reports are popping up that is offering to ship the device with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The only problem is that I’m still seeing it as having Android 2.2 Froyo but this could be a sign that it’s gearing up for the update.
Our friends at Engadget spotted the with Gingerbread on Sprint’s site and the copy suggested this was a new selling feature (it was mentioned multiple times). When I click on the link below, I only see it being advertised with Froyo.
I’m guessing that someone at Sprint just jumped the gun with promotional copy, as we know the EVO 4G and the Thunderbolt 4G will be getting Gingerbread soon. Users of these phones can look forward to an improved keyboard, better app management and overall speed and performance boosts.
This will also pave the way for things like video chatting to take advantage of the EVO 4G’s front-facing camera. Other than that, we’ll have to see what the company does with the Sense UI with Gingerbread, as it won’t be getting some of the latest Sense features due to hardware restrictions.
One way or another, it looks like you can expect Gingerbread on your handset soon and it couldn’t come soon enough, if you ask us. Google’s latest developer status reports said that only a paltry 4 percent of users are on 2.3, so let’s hope that number quickly ramps up.
