  • Stop crying. Sony Ericsson UK says its Android 2.1 update is better than 2.2

  • Petition started for Froyo update on Xperia X10

    Google announced Android 2.2 (Froyo) last week with some significant improvements over 2.1.

  • Android 2.2 Froyo to feature Tethering, Wi-Fi Hotspot function

    Xperia X10 owners may have to wait until the end of the year to get Android 2.1 (Éclair) on their handsets, but by then I imagine a lot of us will be envious about new features getting baked into Android 2.2 (Froyo).
