Optimus GT540 gets updated to Android 2.1

The very interesting LG Optimus GT540 has finally received the official Android 2.1 update from LG. The update from 1.6 to 2.1 is relatively painless and it shouldn't take too long until you're enjoying all of the features Android 2.1 has to offer.

LG Optimus GT540 gets Android 2.1 update

It's obviously a week for Android 2.1 updates, as LG has pushed out its Eclair ROM for the LG Optimus GT540. The new firmware takes the GT540 from the Android 1.6 OS it shipped with to Android 2.1, complete with live wallpapers, multiple Google account support and Microsoft Exchange support. There's also Bluetooth 2.1 support, HTML5 in the browser, and the Quick Contacts UI. Full instructions on how to upgrade can be found here.

TELUS HTC Desire Android 2.2 Froyo going out OTA

Canadian carrier TELUS has begun to push out its Android 2.2 Froyo update for the HTC Desire.  The product page for the Desire - which launched running Android 2.1 Eclair - has been updated with the message "Upgrade your HTC Desire to Android 2.2 today" along with a list of new features. Android Community reader Donald called TELUS, who confirmed that the Desire update is going out OTA from today.  However it's yet to show up on his handset, which suggests it's a staggered release rather than a mass push-out. [Thanks Donald!]

Gingerbread Man Unboxed By Google, placed on the lawn of sweets

As if we needed any proof that Google's upcoming Android version will be named Gingerbread, we finally have official word (sort of) of the imminent OS. Joining the other sweets on their main lawn including eclair, cupcake, and frozen yogurt, Google has even provided us with the unboxing of the oversized treat.

Users Now Testing Android 2.1 on Cliq

The wait is almost over for those digging their fingernails into their kneecaps over Android 2.1 for Motorola Cliq. Word on the street is that a couple thousand super lucky users have been asked to run a bit of Eclair - field trials are on their way toward being under way. Eclair may have already been leaked for Cliq, but this field test means the real, full deal is on the way officially.

Froyo officially coming to the Dell Streak soon, 2.1 Update halted

The Dell streak only recently got it’s own 2.1 build and now Dell has announced that it will be skipping 2.1 in the United States to focus solely on 2.2 Froyo. While this does mean that Streak users will be missing out on 2.1 features over it’s currently equipped 1.6, the direct update to 2.2 will be highly worth the few days/weeks without Eclair. We have heard that 2.2 on the Streak will be available before years end, but with halting 2.1 preparation we can expect that we will see it even earlier than expected. With Gingerbread coming up quickly device manufacturers will have to push out update quickly before they get too far behind. Official Announcement Via Dell "Hi Folks, Due to resources and commitments to get our global customers the 2.2/Froyo update by the end of the year, we will not be publishing another version of 2.1 nor will we be pushing out 2.1 to additional customers. I know many of you have requested that we publish specific dates for Android OS updates; however, because there are so many variables (some outside of our control), we cannot make a specific commitment other than we will be publishing 2.2 by the end of this year to all of our Dell Streak customers. I can tell you that our target date is NOT December 31st. In fact, the over-the-air update to 2.2 is target date is much sooner than that. Please stay tuned here to the Mobile Devices Forum board announcements or follow @DellCares on Twitter for more information. Thanks again for your feedback, Amy" [Via Dell Support Forums]
