Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
We recently told you about an unofficial way to upgrade the Dell Streak to Froyo, but now the Android 2.2 goodness is officially available -- and not before time.
The Dell Streak is a pretty nifty Android tablet/phone with one big negative: it only runs Android 1.6. The Android Australia blog details the process needed to upgrade the device to Froyo.
Nick at Gizmodo has been hassling Telstra again about the long-running Froyo update for the HTC Desire saga, and the latest claim is that the update will actually be out this week. Still no word on whether it will be an over-the-air option, and quite frankly we'll believe it when we actually see it. Update: as several commenters point out below, the update has finally arrived.
There's only two things we can say with certainty about Telstra's "official" Froyo update for the HTC Desire: it's already overdue, and no one at Telstra seems to know yet when and how it will be delivered.
Back on September 15, Telstra promised it would deliver the long-awaited update to Froyo for customers who had purchased the HTC Desire. One month later, it hasn't happened, but Telstra is still claiming it will happen in "the next few days".
The timeframe for Froyo on the LG Optimus is a little vague, but Android lovers rocking the HTC Desire have a more definite timetable: Telstra has said there'll be an over-the-air update to Froyo within the next four weeks.
Android 2.2, or "Froyo", was announced months ago, but it's just now rolling out to popular Android phones like the Droid, Incredible and EVO 4G. So what new and improved features should you look for now that you've updated? Take a look.
Android 2.2 (aka Froyo) has plenty of great features, but with existing Android phones in Australia running on a wide range of versions, finding out when (or if) you'll get an upgrade can be tricky. Fortunately, Jenna Pitcher at Delimiter has a pretty comprehensive roundup of when 2.2 will be distributed by Australian carriers.
