A giant Froyo hits the Googleplex
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last year or so, you surely know that Google has a habit of marking the launch of each key Android build by placing a giant statue of a dessert in its Googleplex (the company's headquarters). Until now, next to the green robot we've seen a Cupcake, a Donut, and an Eclair. As time goes by (and as the Google I/O conference draws near), it was only natural to see the company ready itself for the next installment of the OS by getting a giant Froyo (frozen yogurt) in place, which is still under wraps though. This, of course, comes to show us how close Android 2.2's release is, foreshadowing the arrival of cool stuff like Flash 10.1 support.

I'm pretty sure that the new 2.2 will allow you to install apps on the Sd Card. At least thats what they said in the article about increasing the nexuses speed by 450%.

Well, as we can tell right now, 2.1 seems to be now the official "Upgrade all those old phones that run 1.5\6 to it" version. 2.2 will probably only hit the newer phones out there like the LAMEperia X10, the N1, The incredible\desire and (hopefully) the Droid\milestone. But I think it'l come eventually to almost all phones. Its just a matter of time.

I heard that the older devices will all be getting updated to the 2.1 software because their processors can't handle the newer software.

"I heard that the older devices will all be getting updated to the 2.1 software because their processors can't handle the newer software." Could you clarify please?
