Image Gallery: 5 Early Android 2.2 Candidates

Google's Nexus One, the original Android 2.1 phone, will be the first to update to Android 2.2 and at least four HTC handsets are slated for the initial wave of Froyo updates expected in the second half of the year.




The Nexus One will be the first to update to Android 2.2. It as a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU from Qualcomm and comes with 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, and a 3.7-inch AMOLED 480 x 800 touch screen. The Nexus One weighs 130 grams, about as much as a Swiss army knife. It includes a 5 MP camera with an LED flash, stereo Bluetooth support, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and two microphones -- one on the bottom and one on the back -- for active noise cancellation.

Android 2.2: Ready For Enterprise?

The $300 HTC Android handset packs a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.7 inch WVGA (480x800) AMOLED capacitive touch display, an optical joystick, and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g).

This sought-after handset puts the emphasis on 720p video with two cameras and a 4.3-inch screen. Sprint sold out of the HTC EVO 4G smartphone on its website and there are very few devices left in the carrier's stores. Sprint's site says the new $200 phone is "so hot we can't keep it on our virtual shelves." While the phone is indeed a hot seller, first day sales weren't quite as hot as Sprint initially reported.

HTC's new Desire is not a new cologne (really, would you tell people you had a "Desire"?), but it is the company's first Qualcomm Snapdragon-based Android phone. Its 3.8-inch screen is stellar and performance is blazing fast.

The myTouch is a customized version of the HTC Magic, and it is similar to the T-Mobile G1, but it ditches the full QWERTY keyboard for a touch-based interface. The Android-powered handset still has six physical buttons on its face, but users will likely use the 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen for most of the controls.
