Google Rolling Out Android 2.2 FroYo Update to Nexus One
Though Google this week announced that Android 2.2, codenamed FroYo, would be available to Nexus One owners in the next few weeks, it seems the update has already started trickling out to select devices. All of the promised features are in tact, including wireless tethering to create a Wi-Fi hotspot with the Nexus One, a slightly updated homescreen and the ability to save applications to an external memory card. Adobe's Flash 10.1 Beta is also available to Android 2.2 users as a download from the Google App Market. Though we can confirm the update firsthand, Google has still made no official mention of its availability, or offered a timetable for its rollout to more Nexus One users, or users of other Android devices.

As far as I can tell...
Good for them.
The Real Story
I will say that it does have a noticeable speed increase, and so forth. But this is not a fully stable OTA, IMHO. I think we are still a week or two from the real deal. As it stands, what I have is great, but there are enough bugs that it is clear it isn't mass market ready.
teather with nai ON probably...
