Android 2.2 Froyo officially released to Nexus Ones in the wild

Android-22-froyo-nexus-one_v After it was officially announced in May, Android fans, particularly Nexus One owners, have been patiently waiting for the official release of the over-the-air (OTA) update for Android 2.2 Froyo. Word has now come around that some N1 owners have started to receive update notifications for the upgrade, briskly followed by the official announcement from Google that Froyo is indeed rolling out to N1 users everywhere over the next couple of days. Pocket-lint has revealed that the new build is called FRF85B, with T-Mobile users in the US set to receive it first, followed by the UK and other territories.

Featuring massively streamlined performance across the board and a host of new features including support for Adobe Flash 10.1, USB tethering, and portable WiFi hotspot creation, Android 2.2 is one of the most significant upgrades to Android since its initial launch. With Google's own handset set to receive the update first as expected, the wait continues for other Android users as manufacturers plan their individual rollouts of the update.
