Nexus One getting Froyo in the "next few weeks"

Nexus One getting Froyo in the
Being branded as the actual Google phone, there are some perks that accompany siding with the Nexus One as your preferred handset of choice. Not only did it bring forth Android 2.1 to the spotlight with everyone else still trying to get up to its level, Google's pride and joy will probably be graced with Android 2.2 Froyo in the “next few weeks” - that's exactly what the official Google I/O Twitter account announced. It's possible that we could end up seeing the update come some time before the end of June is upon us, but for the many variants of the Nexus One floating around (Droid Incredible & Desire), it's reported that a Sense packing Froyo won't be seen until the second half of the year. So there you have it, the news looks promising to those Nexus One owners who undoubtedly were drawn to Android 2.1. Thankfully though, they'll also be the first ones to get a tasting of all that's offered with the stomach filling Froyo dessert.

What about the Droid\milestone? It has no sense... so I expect it to come to them very shortly after that.

Oi. And you also get 3g connectivity problems, multi-touch incorrectly showing the position of your touches, as well as your 4 forward touch-sensitive buttons responding to touch only in their upper part.

And let's not forget Wi-Fi that won't stay connected, complete loss of voice and text capability due to signal lock-out, complete lack of customer service and my favorite.... GOOGLE's total lack of caring!

I have not had any of those problems with my phone aside from the four buttons at the buttons not responding everytime. Which I rarely ever use anyway. But if you want to make yourself feel better for getting a inferior device thats your deal

And when Motorola announces the Droid will be getting 2.2 in the next few weeks, we'll be lucky to see it by October, or shortly there after. Motorola BETTER not pull a "it's coming soon", "oh, no wait...", "okay it's coming like tomorrow", "no sorry, next year", okay guys, really, soon", "oh crap, didn't see that, no 2.1 yet", with 2.2.
