Android 2.2 Froyo

Android 2.2 Froyo

News of this nature has been floating around for a while now, but Google have reiterated that the current version of Android 2.2, aka Froyo, is still in development. The build that is on many devices right now is not the final one. ‘Ry Guy’ made a comment on the official Google Android support forum into a thread entitled “when will be available the Nexus One update to Android 2.2 Froyo?” .

Just dropping in to let you know that the FRF72 build that is floating around is not the official update. The Android team is feverishly working to get a final version out the door, but like passion-ate has mentioned this will only happen once a release candidate meets our quality criteria.

Since today is the Summer Solstice, we know things will be heating up a bit so hopefully Froyo will be on its way shortly. Thanks for your continued patience!

How shortly is anyone’s guess, but sooner the better, as far as we’re concerned.
