Froyo roundup: DROID 2 to launch with Android 2.2; updates for Galaxy S and Vodafone Nexus One dated

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.

The Daily Slash: June 17th 2010

We're at the tail-end of the week, but that's not slowing us down. Welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. We're glad you could make it, as usual. Tonight, in the Best of R3 Media, we've got the Nexus One launching with Froyo, the Nintendo 3DS won't make it across the pond for awhile, and the iPhone 4's got some RAM under that hood. And then in the Dredge 'Net, Microsoft is promising a new mobile OS -- kind of, there's already someone waiting for the iPhone 4, and there's even more doubt about the HP Slate.

SMS bug creates Android messaging confusion

SMS bug creates Android messaging confusion

As if we needed another reason to be careful about our sexting habits, an apparent bug on Android devices is causing text and multimedia messages to be sent to unintended recipients.  Multiple Android users are reporting the fault on Google's support forums; the native messaging app on their phone - several models have apparently been affected, including the Google Nexus One and HTC Incredible - replaces the selected recipient of an SMS or MMS with a different identity, sometimes only showing the switch after  the message has been sent.

With the iPhone 4 and Motorola XT720 both coming to market with native 720p HD video capture, it's time for the Nexus One to catch up or give up; happily, thanks to xda-developers, a new firmware hack can grant the Google Phone high-def camcorder skills.  Currently available for Nexus One handsets running Android 2.1, and with a test version for those running 2.2 Froyo on their phone, it allows for recording at up to 1280 x 720 resolution.

Nexus One Used as a USB Host, Thanks to Hack [Video]

Nexus One Used as a USB Host, Thanks to Hack [Video]

For many users out there, one of the better parts of having a phone powered by Google's Android Operating System, is that with a little tinkering, you can pretty much do whatever you want with it. That's mostly because of the Linux running in its veins, but that's definitely not a bad thing. And while rooting is a great way to get what you want done (as this project clearly demonstrates), it's the results that matter the most. And if you've ever wanted to make your Nexus One a USB host, be happy that it's now possible. And has been done, on video.
