Benchmark scores and consumer complaints are in… and it looks like everyone wants Froyo. While those non-US Nexus One owners may be jealous of these beauties running 2.2, fear not… it looks like UK Vodafone Nexus One users will be hitting this update in the next week or so.
According to an email from Vodafone, “the roll out will be phased and will be available to all Vodafone customers who have purchased the handset from us.” Apparantly there are some tweaks to the rollout, to include:
- Amazon MP3 Store and Google Goggles removed from stock apps, but are still downloadable via the Market
- Wireless Hotspot app set to “open” by default
Full email from Vodafone can be read below.
Google Android software update
UK Communications -
We can confirm that Google will start to roll out the latest Android software version (2.2) for Vodafone Nexus One users over the course of the next week as an over-the-air update. The roll out will be phased and will be available to all Vodafone customers who have purchased the handset from us.
If customers ask about any changes, please advise:
“Google has removed two applications from the Vodafone version of the 2.2 software build. These are Amazon MP3 and Google Goggle. Both can be downloaded free of charge from the Android Marketplace
Android 2.2 will be installed with the Wireless Hotspot functionality set to ‘Open’. To make sure that no-one else is able to use your device for WiFi internet access, we recommend that customers change that default setting.
To do this, customers need to access Settings/Wireless and Network/Tethering & Portable Hotspot/Portable Wifi Hotspot, then toggle from ‘Open’ to ‘WPA2PSK’ and Save.”
