All HTC smartphones in China will arrive with Froyo pre-loaded

HTC made the announcement earlier this week that the company would go by its own brand name for the first time in China, and now the deal has gotten sweeter with the fact that all Android phones headed there will have Froyo pre-installed.

HTC made the announcement earlier this week that the company would go by its own brand name for the first time in China, and now the deal has gotten sweeter with the fact that all Android phones headed there will have Froyo pre-installed.

Four HTC models have been confirmed to sell in China: the Desire, Wildfire, Tianxi and Tianyi. Each one is promised to have both Android 2.2 and the HTC Sense interface. Not a bad way to get consumers to jump on your brand's bandwagon.

Meanwhile, current owners of HTC smartphones in most other places are still waiting for a Froyo upgrade. Some models are expected to get the update in August, like the Droid Incredible, but we're still holding out for an official announcement.
