LG Ally owners, wait no further. Android 2.2 OS (Froyo) update is now available. Not to shabby for a mid-range popular device. This is a lot more than we can say for the even more popular Samsung Fascinate. Oh well Samsung, maybe you'll be ready when Android Jello is announced.
Your device will prompt you when it is ready to be updated. In the mean time you can go to support.vzw.com for further instructions and benefits about this update.
Here are some of the improvements on the new Froyo OS.
- Improved security options include remote device wipe, device lock, password complexity, and a minimum password length.
- Long press of physical home key allows easy switching between the last eight applications used.
- Bluetooth® voice dialing displays your verbal instructions and repeats them back to ensure accuracy.
- Enhanced browser performance for faster loading of Java Script pages.
- Enhanced screen rotation (270 degrees) for app compatibility (e.g. browser, messaging, maps and more).
- Updated contact directory, which combines corporate and Google accounts.
- Access the latest Amazon, Amazon MP3, Facebook®, and Thinkfree Office applications.
- Instant data re-connection after a long voice call.
- LG Social Application (previously Socialite).
