  • *OFFICIAL* Huawei Ascend Android Update Coming Soon!

    We received information regarding the Huawei Ascend getting an update to a newer version of Android. We weren't planning on posting it just yet, but it looks like Cricket Wireless leaked it out on their Facebook. So, we'll release what we've heard now.

    From what we heard, the Huawei Ascend on Cricket Wireless should be receiving an Android update. We think that is going to be Android 2.2, but we're not certain. We also don't know when the update is going to be released. If we receive that information, we will post it.

    Here is a screenshot from when Cricket posted about it on their Facebook:

    Thanks to Darkencypher for the screenshot!

    UPDATE (7/3/2011):

      Well, we will see. Cricket is denying it again saying they don't have any information, but screenshots don't lie.

      remember their Facebook and Twitter accounts are managed by a hired PR firm. These are not Cricket employees and they usually don't know their asses from a hole in the ground.

      But they shouldn't post information unless it has been confirmed by someone from corporate, don't you think?

      Excellent point but if Cricket was going to make someone available to verify everything the posted on these things, they'd just have them do it. They have hired said PR firm to do the dirty work and supplied them with boilerplate information with which to draw from for their answers. Ask them any sort of mildly technical question and they just stammer or shut up all together.
      Ryan from Cricket who is all over HOfo is a good example.

      Yeah, but if they don't know the answer for something they simply shouldn't comment.

      I understand what you're saying though.

      Now this would be nice. I was actually at a Cricket store today to ask about upgrading to 2.2, and was told that an upgrade IS available, I just have to search for it online because an OTA update would erase all data from the phone. Happily, a search turned up this site and what is probably a more accurate answer to my question.
