HTC EVO 4G

Well, somebody had to be first, and it seems that Sprint will be the first carrier (U.S., at least) to offer the Android 2.2 Froyo OS update to its users – specifically, to its HTC EVO 4G users.  According to a Sprint Community blog post:

Sprint will be the first wireless carrier to bring the latest version of Android to its customers. The Android 2.2 software release provides a significant number of feature enhancements, including:

Voice Dialing Over Bluetooth. Application Storage on External Memory, giving users more storage room for all their apps. Camera 4-way rotation allows the camera icons to rotate with the [...]

Samsung Galaxy S running with Froyo 2.2

by: James TromansJuly 29, 2010

The European version and original Samsung Galaxy S has recently received a leaked upgrade to Froyo 2.2, should you want to install it. The news set XDA-Forums wild yesterday, and now the dust has had a moment to settle, we followed HDBlog.it who recently published a video on the matter. The first thing they note is that this is a test release PDA ROM version. For the most part, everything is there, but its not the complete version.

I use a Samsung Galaxy S at the moment so I will make sure to bring you hands on news of what the Froyo updates entail, how to do them and where to get the files. For now though, please enjoy the video.

Converging evidence for Android 2.2 on the Droid 2 from get-go

by: James TromansJuly 21, 2010

Droid 2 with Android 2.2

News from different sources has confirmed the Droid 2 is likely to launch with Android 2.2, also known as Froyo. This converging evidence comes from both DroidLife and Phandroid, who independently offer real evidence for this existence of Android 2.2 on the device.

DroidLife have provided the screenshot to the right and this shows the about screen of the device revealing a version number of 2.2, along with a few other bits such as the baseband, kernel and build. On the Phandroid front, we have a photo of Verizon’s device database which shows the Motorola Droid 2 as an Android 2.2 device.

Hopefully this means [...]

Android 2.2 cleans up with iOS4 in JavaScript Performance

by: James TromansJuly 8, 2010

iOS 4 vs Android 2.2

Ars Technica have released some statistics revealing the performance of Android 2.2 in comparison to the iOS 4 platform. Specifically, the performance benchmarks were based on JavaScript using SunSpider and V8.

To be honest, I am slightly surprised someone had not performed these tests already as they were screaming out to be run. First, it should be noted that the results show “JavaScript execution in Froyo’s Web browser is almost three times faster than in the previous version of the [Android] platform.” This is something we were expecting due to the high-performance JIT that was introduced in [...]

So why are some HTC devices slow to upgrade?

by: James TromansJuly 7, 2010

HTC Update to Froyo explained

So why has Froyo not already landed on HTC’s Desire, Legend and Wildfire handsets? In an interview with Pocket-lint at the Qualcomm Uplinq convention in San Diego, USA, HTC’s global PR and online community manager (Eric Lin) explains why.

In short, it is because every HTC application requires a port to Froyo. The saving grace is that the update from 2.1 to 2.2 is less servere in terms of coding required changes.

“It takes time to port all of our applications over to Froyo and then make sure that it is running well on each of our devices”, said Lin. “That’s not like a one week kind [...]
