HTC Droid Incredible 2 Looks Like It’s Getting Gingerbread Soon

When Verizon announced HTC’s Droid Incredible 2 at the end of April, it confirmed that the smartphone would ship with Android 2.2 Froyo. Sure, that wasn’t great news, but we expected a Gingerbread update to be waiting for the smartphone just around the corner. That must have been a heck of a big corner, as we’re still waiting for the update to arrive, but at least now there are signs that it could very well be imminent, with Verizon hosting the update documentation on its site, in advance of the code’s release.

The update, when it finally arrives, will bring the Incredible 2 up to system software 2.18.605.4. Besides the standard changes we know to expect from Gingerbread, there are a whole bunch of other fixes and tweaks bundled up in this release. If you’re using one of the wireless induction-charging battery covers, you’ll find a new charging interface waiting for you. Global support should be improved, with better performance when roaming off of Verizon’s CDMA network. Hotmail should now sync properly, and you’ll find the system reporting more detail on resources consumed by currently-running apps. Beyond these and other specific improvements, Verizon promises a more stable smartphone experience, with fewer resets or freezes getting in your way.

There’s no word on just when this update will go live, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see Verizon tweeting to expect it sometime in the coming days.
