AndroidOS 2.2 is Mine!

I woke up this morning to the notification that, during the night, the Nexus had downloaded the long awaited AndroidOS 2.2 upgrade (Yes, it has, like all operating systems, a cute name. I have now made a policy of avoiding names in operating systems across the board. They're only confusing...and I blame Apple for this (Leopard and Snow Leopard?? What were you folks smoking????). The update was announced on 29 June.

The most waited for new features was the ability to teather the phone. I have yet to test that. Memory management was very much improved. Speed is also said to be improved, but I never know if my speed issues are the phone or the network. I will say that the most disappointing app I've had, in terms of speed, has been the Gmail app. I think I detected a good improvement there, but I'll have to continue to monitor it.

The calendar UI seems to have been tweaked a bit to allow a better and more accurate view in month mode.

All in all, not a bad 4th of July present from Google. :-)

The native USB and WiFi hot spot tethering itself makes the update easily worth it. :D

I'll have to do some research on trackball coloring now. I see it flashes blue instead of white. Would be nice if I could set it to different colors for various things like my old G1. (Without having to root and install custom ROM.)
