All areas of improvement on the Android 2.2 update have had their praises sung over the T3 Twitter feed by real end users happily living with FroYo splattered over their most prized of possessions, their smartphones. From improved processing speeds to the big two-fingers-up to Apple that is the integration of Flash 10.1, FroYo appears on paper as one of the most exciting mobile operating systems available with first impression reader responses seeming to confirm this.

A general consistency in all user responses was the impressive speeds being achieved with the FroYo update. Twitter follower mattewbowden stated this with his tweet that declared: “FroYo (N1) – super quick browsing and when moving from app to app, transitions etc. No lag at all.” This was reiterated by Leod_UK who similarly claimed: “I am on a Desire, good speed improvements, lots of useful usability tweaks etc etc, liking it a lot so far.”

Other points of appeal for the first uptakers of Android 2.2 was the Flash integration and the ability to store applications on SD card, both of which prompted tweeter Yrna to say: “Got FroYo yesterday – really fast and responsive, love being able to copy apps to SD card. BBC iPlayer finally useful. Flash rules.”

The HTC Desire is the most high profile handset to currently offer the FroYo update but, at present, is limited to unlocked handsets with negotiations and plans currently running between network providers and Google as to a complete Desire, FroYo rollout.
