HTC has been ignoring the Legend, in terms of keeping its software up-to-date, for quite a while (at least compared to the Desire), but earlier this month they promised they would have an update to Android 2.2 soon. Naturally, everyone expected this update to become available for unlocked, sans carrier branding Legends first, as always happens.
This may be an interesting exception, though, as it looks like the first batches of HTC Legend smartphones to get the update are those sold by Vodafone and Virgin in the UK. Phones bought from those two operators have started notifying their owners of the availability of the update, and Virgin has even made it official. According to them, the update started rolling out at 9 am this morning.
Vodafone hasn’t issued any official statement on the matter (yet), but keep an eye on your Legend’s notification bar – a nice surprise may be waiting.
As for Virgin-sold devices, the update is only available to customers that now have version 1.23.351.1. If you have older firmware, you’ll have to upgrade to that first, to be able to then jump to Froyo.
