myTouch 3G Slide rumored to get Android 2.2 shortly after launch
T-Mobile’s myTouch 3D Slide is not due out for a few more days, but it looks like those who plan on picking it up may have a little surprise waiting for them shortly after launch. The myTouch 3G Slide will be shipping with Android 2.1, but rumors are starting to surface which indicate that an Android 2.2 update could be hitting the handset not long after it hits store shelves. AndroidSpin claims to be getting this news from two separate sources and that an internal rollout of the Android 2.2 build will start rolling out to their employees for testing sometime next week.
Just like yesterday’s story about the Android 2.2 update for the HTC Desire, we’re going to catalogue this one as pure rumor. It would be great to see HTC rolling out Froyo updates to their handsets this fast, but we all know how the HTC Hero Android 2.1 rollout went (GSM Hero owners are STILL sitting on 1.5 with no update in sight). If you don’t get your hopes up, you can’t be disappointed.
