What we need to see is how Android 2.2 gets rolled out to existing handsets. I’m already getting blasted by owners of various Android phones wanting to know when their handset will get the update. The truth is I don’t know, and I’m not sure anyone does yet. The phone update process hasn’t changed — Google released Froyo to partners, OEMs decide if they want to release it for a given phone and then the carrier has to bless the update and actually roll it out. I suspect that many existing phones will never get Android 2.2, and that will be a pity.
