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

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.

Samsung has taken it upon itself to rescue avid Android texters from the dangers of sturdy street furniture with Road SMS, a free download that overlays a QWERTY keyboard on top of a live feed from the camera.  We've been putting it through its paces over at Android Community - together with flagging up some of the issues - but you can get a sneak peak of our hands-on (or, as the photo shows, our hands-through) video after the cut.

Taking the best features of the Samsung Galaxy S, and tagging on a new name for a different market, T-Mobile's getting ready to launch their next superphone.

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.
