The Nexus One is getting updates to Android 2.2 presently. Check out the Blogs & News Section of the website. Over a month ago I think was when Android 2.2 first started rolling out to some devices. Two days ago or so an even newer version of Android 2.2 started getting sent out. You can probably go and install Android 2.2 on your phone by going to a website with the download link, and then installing it on your phone.

In regards to the HTC Desire, I also saw rumors a couple days ago that the Desire might get the update to 2.2 in about two weeks or so. However, I would remain skeptical, since the official version of Android 2.2 hasn't made it out to everyone yet, and they are most likely going to be the first users to get it.

When my friend's N1 update to 2.2, lots of apps get trapped.
But I still wanna update my milestone to 2.2 cause Google assert that 2.2 is 10 times as fast as 2.1.

I think that the only thing that is for sure for most of the first generation Android phones is that nothing is for sure. It's going to be a wait and see game. No company would want to tell you that you will or will not be getting the update until they absolutely have to.

Exactly.

Wyatt, from what I understand, it is a lot of work just to get one device updated onto a new Android OS version, and I'm sure there are companies out there that would rather not have to go through the trouble of pushing out updates for their devices after release. Luckily, Android 2.2 is not a humongous change from Android 2.1 like it was from Android 1.6 or Android 1.5, so there is hope. However, it is a very touchy subject, both for consumers and companies. All of those phones listed have not yet been announced to be receiving Android 2.2 from what I remember.

thank you very much. i was doing some research earlier and found a list of devices from all brands that have a fair chance at the update.

Where did you find this list? Would you mind posting a link?
