LG Ally, your Froyo is about to be served

LG Ally, your Froyo is about to be served
Back in December, we reported that the mid range LG Ally would be receiving its Android 2.2 upgrade in February. That forecast might turn out to be right on as a leaked .PDF file shows that the handset is about to get Android 2.2.05. With a processor clocked at 600MHz running the device, It is not known which of Froyo's features will be supported by the Ally. It is possible that the handset might not be able to run the Adobe Flash Player 10.1. which has required an 800MHz processor, except for the first-gen Motorola DROID.

According to the leaked document, among the features on the upgrade will be an improved security system including remote wipe and device lock. Long press the physical home key to switch back and forth among the last eight applications you've used. And verbal Bluetooth instructions are displayed and repeated to make sure that they are accurate.

Getting Android 2.2 is pretty much a sure thing for LG Ally owners. The bigger question is whether or not Adobe Flash can be shoehorned onto the device.

Verizon is telling LG Ally owners that their handset will get better with Android 2.2, but will the upgrade allow for Adobe Flash support?

Quietly one of the best Android phones on the market...if you're not looking for all the glitz and glamour the X, Incredible, EVO, and Galaxy S offers this is a good device to have for entry level smartphone owners.

it IS known that the Ally will NOT support adobe flash. You can call vzw cust service to confirm. That leaked doc didn't have all the details. Just in case you were hoping....

I just received the update the other day - and still don't have Adobe Flash. I love the phone and the shape, but with the lacking adobe flash I doubt I would recommend it. There's a lot you miss without that. I'm not sure the upgrade to 2.2 is worth all the hype without the Flash. Maybe they'll add it or someone will know how to add it. Waiting for some posts on that.

Just received the update yesterday. I loved my Ally 'til this last update ... home key doesn't work at all, I have to backspace through everything to get to the home screen ... deleted all my bookmarks & locked saved messages ... surfin the web isn't any different ... extra apps I don't use & will never use, therefore taking up space on the phone ... all keys wake the phone up, all I had to do was touch the power key or open the slider, I don't like that any key wakes the phone up, phone wakes up in my purse or coat pocket now... no Flash which sucks, I miss a lot not having Flash ... out of all the updates I had received since getting the Ally 10/2010, this one was the worst, totally screwed up my phone. My son has an Ally & it crashed twice since he got his. The only things I'm thankful for at the moment are the fact that my contacts weren't deleted & my SD card wasn't erased.
