i did hear a rumour going around that the high end HTC android phones would be getting FroYo before june 23 ...

which leads me to another question. since my phone is unlocked/international/open and not tied to a carrier, do i have to worry about manually updating it? will it just download the update ota when i'm connected to the internet?

Both my Nexus One's updated with the V2.1 plus OTA within 2 hours of being powered on.

You can "checkin", too, if you want to try to be pro-active about it. That procedure is documented several times in these forums and on dozens of other web sites, too.

As far I know, the telcos 9smaller ones anyway) aren't directly involved. It's HTC and Google looking after the phones. Especially Nexus One, but it should apply to all and any.

A HUGE telco like Verizon may have arranged to do / overssee their own.....or packaged a specific outsource and / or target date.....or choose your favourite variation for 'gettin' stuff done'.

The process appears to be flexible.....but everyone gets an update. No phones are intended to be left behind.
