Ramboss: Has anyone recently imported a Defy? am wondering if the imported ones come with 2.2 already installed. Have read that all new ones have it already.
Telecom NZ are selling Defy's with preinstalled 2.2, however I bought mine about a month ago imported (through eking) and it was on 2.1. I think this would be the case with most imported defys.
However the 2.2 update was recently released for certain Asian regions so you may be able to update it after you receive it, which is what I did. It's possible that now that, depending on which region its being imported from, the importers would have them preinstalled with 2.2 before shipping. You should ask whoever you are planning to buy from.
