UK: T-Mobile Motorola Defy Android 2.2 Froyo update comes at the beginning of July
While we all like to dream about Android Ice Cream Sandwich, there are those who have in their possession Android phones which still run version 2.1 of the operating system unfortunately. Such is the case with the Motorola Defy, or used to be the case. Customers of T-Mobile USA have started receiving an update to Android 2.2 Froyo (which, of course, still isn’t the latest version, but at least it’s miles ahead of the positively ancient 2.1) back in April.
Last week, those who got their Defy in the UK started receiving the update as well, with one exception apparently: customers of T-Mobile UK. Those who got their devices from TMo’s UK arm are still stuck on Android 2.1.
Luckily, the operator has taken to Twitter today to announce that that won’t be the case for long. It will be pushing out the Android 2.2 Froyo update to Motorola Defy smartphones it sold in the UK at the beginning of July.
Since the literal beginning of July is in a week from now, that means that owners of TMo-branded Defy handsets in the UK only have a bit more waiting to do before they step into 2010, with their OS version at least.
As this will be an over-the-air update, the rollout will be staggered, so even if it starts on July 1, not all Defy owners will receive it on the same day. Still, if you’ve waited this long, a few more days are nothing. Right?
