HTC vows Android 2.3 upgrade for two phones

HTC on Wednesday promised that both the original Droid Incredible and the Thunderbolt would get Android 2.3 in September. It wouldn't confirm exact dates or whether there were any device-specific fixes. The company had originally promised the Thunderbolt upgrade in the spring, but it pushed this back and was testing as early as May.

Android 2.3 gives official support for the front camera if one is available, which rules out the Thunderbolt. Every phone gets better app and power management, faster graphics performance, and a more polished interface. If HTC upgrades to 2.3.4, it can give the Thunderbolt official Google Talk video chat.

The update will make the Droid Incredible one of the oldest phones to keep getting Android updates. It first shipped to Verizon in April of last year with 2.1 and predates even the Evo 4G.
