Froyo is Official for the Nexus One

After about a month of leaked pre-release builds, OTAs to small test groups, and lots and lots of speculation, Google confirmed today that Froyo is rolling out to all Nexus Ones. The FRF85B build we saw yesterday is the final release build.

“Starting today, Nexus One users will begin to receive the Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) over-the-air software update on their phones. … This update will be rolled out gradually to phones – and most users will receive the notification by the end of the week.”

Let us know in the comments as you receive it. Seems like a nice summer day to enjoy some delicious froyo!

Sony Ericsson Steps up Camera Game with new Xperia Arc

If you tuned into last night’s episode of the Monday Night podcast, you’d know that one of the topics we touched on was digital cameras in smart phones. While the average consumer thinks that more megapixels means better pictures,this couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, all it essentially means is a larger final image. There are other features that factor into how nice those pictures from your birthday party end up looking. Factors that include speed, sensors, and light sensitivity among others. Sony Ericsson understands this and has taken dramatic steps in improving the camera in their upcoming Xperia Arc.

    Any idea if this will include the AT&T model? I've got my fingers crossed…

      It definitely does include the AT&T model. I know folks who've received it on AT&T-banded Nexus Ones.

    I’m on a T-Mobile nexus one on build frf72…
    Should I look into downgrading because I read that frf85 doesn’t add on top of frf72 properly…
    will this change because its an OTA not a forced update???

      I upgraded from frf72 to frf83 with no problem. And then to frf85b. Try that route.

      Can't believe people are downmodding you for telling the absolute truth. Ridiculous!

      Not totally sure, but rooting almost always blocks the phone from receiving regular OTA updates, since they would remove root and perhaps otherwise wreak havoc.

    I'm in Canada on Rogers/N1 and tried the 'force update' option from the phone keypad and it didn't take. Luckily, the patch to upgrade from the AT&T phones was posted at google so I downloaded and got Froyo goodness the manual way! It's noticably faster, quite zippy, although I find embedded flash sites tend to slow response back down to where it was prior to release. Of course, the beauty of that is I can use flash *when I want to*, Jobs you idiot!
