A Late Night Froyo Treat! Android 2.2 Goes Live On The Nexus One

Sometimes there are advantages to staying up really late at night. I had just laid down in my bed to try and get some sleep before an early flight to New York tomorrow when I remembered I hadn't charged my Nexus One. I reached over to my bedside table to grab it, and I see an alert letting me know a system update is available. Having just read numerous reports that Android 2.2 would be coming to the device in the " next few weeks " I figured this couldn't be the new OS codenamed "Froyo." But it was. Yes, apparently Google is starting to roll out the Android 2.2 Froyo update to Nexus One devices right now. I just tried the EVO 4G (the newest Android phone which Google gave out at Google I/O this week) but 2.2 isn't available for it yet. I guess being the "Google Phone" has its advantages. Nexus One owners, if you're up, check for an update right now.
