No sooner has it been announced than Google starts the rollout on the Nexus One: from now on, all mobile phones will gradually receive the new update "Over-the-Air", in time for the sales launch at Vodafone tomorrow. When the other manufacturers will follow suit and also bring "Froyo", as Android 2.2 is called, on their devices is still open - Motorola has announced to bring Android 2.2 for the milestone, but hasn't published a schedule.
The other manufacturers - above all HTC - have so far remained silent. However, the early update from Google should exert a certain pressure to bring an update as well.
