Android 2.2 update available now on Google Nexus One

The Desire and Milestone will get 2.2 this week

The first phone to receive the update to Android 2.2 (or ‘Froyo’) is officially the Google Nexus One. Since it’s Google’s flagship, own handset, we’re hardly surprised that this is the case, but word is that the over-air update will become available to other Android 2.1 handsets over the course of the week.

An official post in the Google Nexus One forum states: “Starting today, Nexus One users will begin to receive the Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) over-the-air software update on their phones. This update provides some great new features including support for making your handset a portable hotspot and support for Adobe Flash within the browser.”

This is all US only at present, but we can only assume that the update will trickle onto British shores shortly. The blog post continues: “This update will be rolled out gradually to phones - and most users will receive the notification by the end of the week.”

If we’re right, this means that the HTC Desire and Motorola Milestone should get Froyo in the UK at some point soon. We’d initially thought that we’d get the update by the end of June, but we can deal with it being a few days late.

Keep checking both the update bar at the top of your phone and T3.com for more.
