Android 2.2 (Froyo) is now available to most of the Nexus One users, ofcourse, except the users have rooted their N1 will have to wait for an officialFroyo dump for their devices to update.
This update comes with an interesting feature which was never highlighted at the Google I/O 2010, trackball colours! This feature was rumoured months ago to be included in the next Android update, and it really is, but was never mentioned anywhere by Google. Or may be, it’s only for the N1 trackball?
Android 2.2 release was an epic slap on Apple’s face, which was announced at the Google I/O 2010, two days ago. The update has already started rolling out to the Nexus One users, hence the advantage of owning a “Google Phone”.
In all the excitement for Froyo, we totally skip out something what Google showed us at the Google I/O. In the videos where google shows what they have in store for Android next, they revealed (probably) Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) UI, which looks like a refresh from what we have in Froyo and previous versions.
A big day for Android developers today! Google has announced some long-wanted and really cool features at the Google I/O event. Android 2.2 and Google TV are the biggest announcements so far!
Android 2.2 (Froyo) SDK is now available to developers and start playing with all the awesome API’s and features announced today.
Google I/O live stream is available on YouTube, in case you want to watch the presentations. The event is about to start in around 40 minutes. I’m keeping a track of it, thanks to the Google I/O Android app.
The official Google streaming links have been posted below the screenshot of the Google I/O Android app.
