August 3, 2010, By Atul Roach

Just if you haven’t noticed, today is August 3, 2010, the day when the HTC Evo 4G users were promised an Android Froyo 2.2 update and what really comes across as a pleasant surprise is the fact that the OTA update has already started reaching a number of users before the scheduled/expected time.

Unlike the cases of many Android Froyo craving smartphones users across the globe, the Evo 4G users have gotten lucky as they did not have to indefinitely wait for the Froyo goodness to arrive, with their OTA update arriving on time.

The HTC Evo 4G as it is has been a hot selling smartphone given its bright feature set and the ability to run on WiMAX bands and add to this the advantages that Froyo brings in, Evo 4G suddenly seems a complete package.

The particular update for Evo 4G arrives with goodies such as USB tethering, voice dialing, Wi-Fi hotspot functionality and support for Adobe Flash 10.1. Another noticeable improvement is the ability to install applications to the removable storage options.

There is also a new flashlight application which can be brought into use as a great amusement option. Another great advantage of the Froyo over the Eclair would be unbelievably better browsing speeds and you will realize this when you eventually have version 2.2 running on your Evo 4G handsets.
