Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

Android 2.2 for Samsung Captivate? Maybe.

When Samsung released the Galaxy S seven months ago, they promised users a quick upgrade path to Android 2.2 (Froyo). But that was seven months ago, and so far, nothing, even though Android 2.3 is already on the market and Android 2.4 is coming soon. But there just may be some hope, though it may be faint. A screen shot from AT&T's support page for the Samsung Captivate shows the device running Android 2.2.

Droid Pro Review

Droid Pro Review

Android devices may be storming the market in terms of sheer numbers but, with a few unusual exceptions, most manufacturers have stuck to basic touchscreen candybars or horizontal QWERTY sliders. Motorola's latest handset, the Verizon DROID PRO, seemingly looks to Canada for its inspiration: its distinctly BlackBerry styling mark it out as a more serious messaging device. Has Motorola beaten RIM at its own game, or is the DROID PRO a form-factor footstep too far? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Today we reconfirm the idea that Google Voice for iPhone is a big deal - then argue about it! Apple told the world they'd be changed forever after today, then the Beatles are released on iTunes! We review and/or unbox the following items: SoundFreaq SFQ-01A, Google Voice for iPhone, Samsung Continuum, and Evan's epic week with the HTC HD7 continues with "Software!" Barnes and Noble's Nook Color officially goes on sale, and Google CEO Eric Schmidt's Web 2.0 2010 appearance video is up for multiple views - the Nexus S! Gingerbread! Sweetness!

Rosemary’s Baby: iPhone 3G and Android 2.2 Froyo Combine to Form Adobe Flash for iPhone

Rosemary’s Baby: iPhone 3G and Android 2.2 Froyo Combine to Form Adobe Flash for iPhone

It is truly a wish born of a ritualistic and unnatural set of events put in motion by a port of Google's Android 2.2.1 over to the iPhone 3G, allowing then Apple's IOS and Google's Android Froyo OS to have a baby named Flash on the iPhone. The entire process is basically illegal, so don't actually do it if you fear the law or have any hope for getting into Apple or Google heaven, requires that you jailbreak your iPhone. After broken, you'll need to install Cydia (not approved in any way by Apple), add a repository to Cydia, and download the package by the name "iDroid" for either your iPhone 3G or original iPhone.

Lashings of Froyo rumor over the past twenty-four hours, with talk of Android 2.2 headed to various high-end handsets.  First off, spyshots have tipped the Motorola DROID 2 as launching on Verizon with Froyo preloaded according to Droid-Life, rather than the Android 2.1 OS we've seen on the DROID X, while elsewhere there's talk of Android 2.2 updates for existing devices.

That includes a Froyo update for the Vodafone Google Nexus One as early as next week, with the carrier-branded device finally getting what unlocked users have been enjoying for a few weeks now.  Handy, since Google has announced that they'll soon not be offering the unlocked version themselves, leaving it up to carrier partners to supply the phone.
