In an effort to keep their Android handsets up to date, HTC has started pushing out Android 2.2 to the HTC Aria. While this may sound like good news, those of you with an AT&T branded HTC Aria will most likely be disappointed to hear that this update is currently only available in Southeast Asia. We’re not entirely sure why U.S. customers have been left in the cold, but there have been rumors floating around that AT&T’s Android update testing process takes quite a bit longer than it should.
Android 2.2 should give the HTC Aria a pretty significant performance boost and enable features like live wallpapers, data tethering, and apps to SD. Hopefully AT&T and HTC will be able to sort things out pretty quickly and bring Android 2.2 to U.S. Aria users as quickly as possible. It would be nice if the update came to U.S. shores before the end of the year, but a more realistic timeframe would probably be mid to late January. Place your bets! When do you think the AT&T HTC Aria will be getting a fresh serving of Froyo?
