Verizon's LG Ally gets Froyo early

Verizon's LG Ally gets Froyo early
Last year we began hearing rumors that in February Verizon was going to start rolling out Android 2.2 Froyo for the LG Ally, and this was furthered along with a leaked image a few days ago. Then this weekend we recieved word from a few LG Ally users that the update in now available and can be installed on the phone. We checked in on the Verizon site, and sure enough the Froyo update information for the LG Ally has been listed. The download is 52.3 MB and updates the device to Android 2.2 VS740ZVD. So what does it include? Improved security options include remote device wipe, device lock, password complexity, and a minimum password length - Long press of physical home key allows easy switching between the last eight applications used - Bluetooth voice dialing displays your verbal instructions and repeats them back to ensure accuracy - Enhanced browser performance for faster loading of Java Script pages - Enhanced screen rotation (270 degrees) for app compatibility (e.g. browser, messaging, maps and more) - Updated contact directory, which combines corporate and Google accounts - Access the latest Amazon, Amazon MP3, Facebook, and Thinkfree Office applications - Instant data re-connection after a long voice call - LG Social Application (previously Socialite).

Still missing from the list is any mention of being able to use Adobe Flash 10.1 on the device, so if you have an LG Ally and update it to Froyo, please let us know in the Comment section if you're also able to install and use Adobe Flash.
