US Cellular Desire update is now here as of 2/8. More information http://nickescobedo.com/239/android-2-2-froyo-is-now-available-for-us-cellular-htc-desire.
Update: US Cellular has released Android 2.2 (Froyo) for the Acclaim. You can download the Samsung Acclaim update here! They have also pushed back the date for the Desire. Apparently they will have a specific release date for us in about 2 weeks. I will continue to update this post. The other Samsung phones are getting updates in March.
Update: US Cellular has just updated their Facebook page with almost final release dates for their Android phones. The Samsung Acclaim will update next week, HTC Desire end of January, and the other two Samsung phones the Apex and Mesmerize will update in March. See above picture for official Facebook post
UPDATE: US Cellular has updated their Facebook page with the status above. Froyo or Android 2.2 release date is targeted to upgrade later this month, but may be pushed to January due to technical issues with HTC and Samsung.
Feels like a long time coming, US Cellular has finally announced the HTC Desire and Samsung Acclaim will “hopefully” receive Froyo in November. US Cellular seems to adapt more quickly to the market now that they have released Android phones. This is huge for US Cellular because they are always looked at as being slow to bring things to the market.
I’m interested to see how well 2.2 will run on the Acclaim. Hopefully it will smooth things out for the users that say the phone is slow!
