All HTC Wildfires to get Android 2.2 by February

HTC, on its Facebook page, revealed that its entry-level Android-powered handset, the Wildfire will get a software update to Android 2.2. Wildfires in Europe will begin receiving the update this week, with a global rollout done by February. European carrier Vodafone confirmed the news, tweeting that Android 2.2 has been rolled out Monday morning.

The Wildfire launched in May with Android 2.1 and a 3.2-inch, 320x240 LCD touchscreen. There is also a five-megapixel camera, a 528Mhz processor and Wi-Fi along with Bluetooth. The update will let users share the handset's Wi-Fi connection with others, install apps on the SD card and improve the camera and Bluetooth performance. General performance boosts and bug fixes are also part of the update.

Due to the limited hardware specs of the Wildfire, Android 2.2's live wallpapers and Flash support won't be available on the device.
