Keep your cynic hat on, but HTC has confirmed that Froyo will be available for select Android devices next quarter. Recombu got word from an HTC spokesperson that it’s in the process of updating HTC Sense to Android 2.2, meaning some device owners could have a shorter wait for the latest version of Android than they have traditionally experienced.

The official word from HTC reads as follows:

“We are working hard with our partners to update the HTC Sense experience on Froyo and distribute it to our customers as fast as possible. We expect to release updates for several of our 2010 models including Desire, Legend and Wildfire beginning in Q3.”

Q3 2010 begins in a few days, but we definitely won’t be seeing it in the immediate future. The “beginning in Q3″ actually refers to that’s when the first group of phones – in this case the Desire, Legend, and Wildfire – will see an update. Froyo was only finalized and released last week to partners, meaning it will probably be a month or two before we see any Sense device make the jump to Android 2.2.
