"Android 2.2, Google's operating system for mobile devices, is coming to the Nexus One smartphone via an over-the-air update. The new version codenamed Froyo is significantly faster and supports features like push-through notifications. Android 2.2 will allow users to turn their handset into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot. With the update installed, the device can be used as a 3G connection for Linux and Windows powered laptops and netbooks.

"Starting today, Nexus One users will begin to receive the Android 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) over-the-air software update on their phones," Google said in a statement. "In order to access the update, you will receive a message on your phone's notification bar. Just download the update, wait for it to install, and you should be all set. This update will be rolled out gradually to phones - and most users will receive the notification by the end of the week."
