Official FroYo Update for Nexus One on Vodafone Next week!

Those of you in the U.K. looking longingly at us here in the U.S. with our fancy Froyo-laden Nexus Ones may soon have something to boast about as well. An e-mail from Vodafone confirms that "the roll out will be phased and will be available to all Vodafone customers who have purchased the handset from us."

A couple of things have been tweaked, as well:

  • The Amazon MP3 store and Google Goggles have been stripped from the ROM but are available in the Android Market.
  • Vodafone notes that security on the wireless hotspot app is set to "open" by default.

So, that's two phones that officially have Froyo. Who's next? (Check out the full text of Vodafone's communique after the break. Thanks, D!

Google Android software update
UK Communications -

We can confirm that Google will start to roll out the latest Android software version (2.2) for Vodafone Nexus One users over the course of the next week as an over-the-air update. The roll out will be phased and will be available to all Vodafone customers who have purchased the handset from us.

If customers ask about any changes, please advise:

"Google has removed two applications from the Vodafone version of the 2.2 software build. These are Amazon MP3 and Google Goggle. Both can be downloaded free of charge from the Android Marketplace

Android 2.2 will be installed with the Wireless Hotspot functionality set to 'Open'. To make sure that no-one else is able to use your device for WiFi internet access, we recommend that customers change that default setting.

To do this, customers need to access Settings/Wireless and Network/Tethering & Portable Hotspot/Portable Wifi Hotspot, then toggle from 'Open' to 'WPA2PSK' and Save."
