Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update: Release Date and Nexus One Rumors

By Alan Ng - Apr 21, 2010

We have some exciting news for Android fans out there now, especially if you are in possession of one of the ‘newer’ Android handsets, as we have some details on Android 2.2, or ‘Froyo’ as it’s also known.

As reported from Phandroid, analyst reports have suggested that Google is already preparing test builds of Android 2.2 to release to developers.

Google are yet to disclose any official information on Android 2.2, but rumors have already gathered speed on what could be included as standard. These include Adobe Flash 10.1, FM Radio enable and the ability to free up additional RAM.

Even more interesting, Phandroid hints that Google might be preparing an unveil of Android 2.2 at their I/O conference in May, and that their Nexus One handset may be the first one to benefit from the upgrade via an OTA update.

It will be interesting to see further information pop out on Android 2.2, but I think many phone owners are happy just getting 2.1 at the moment – unless you’re a HTC Hero owner of course.
