AT&T has posted news on its Facebook fan page that the HTC Aria will be updating to Froyo (Android 2.2 -- remember it?) tomorrow. The little Android device was AT&T's second Android powered phone to enter their stores. Since then, consumers have been waiting to see if the Aria was going to be getting a Froyo update.

The Aria's newer second cousin, the Samsung Captivate, is expected to be getting Froyo today. From reading through the Facebook fan page comments, owners really mostly want the Captivate to update already. How about you guys? Are you still rolling with an HTC Aria? 

AT&T has also posted a interview with Dante Martin, AT&T's Android Senior Project Manager. Video after the break! [Facebook] Thanks, Greg K!

Why did the Aria take so long?

Midrange device on AT&T. HTC updates their high end devices first, then their unbranded midrange devices, and lastly their branded midrange devices.

WhitePhone says:

Ah, I see, Still seems like a long time considering the EVO got it in July......

Honestly this is kind of surprising to me - I didn't expect to see the upgrade ever happen for this device. I suspect that the majority of people using the Aria (myself being one) who are actually paying attention enough to know that this update is coming are already running at least Froyo, if not Gingerbread on their device.

Yeah like we all waited for this...AT&T this update just took way to long...rooted and running Cyanogenmod...and loving it!

Heads up -- If you apply this OTA, you may never be able to root your Aria. Ever.
