Motorola has finally pushed out Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, to the ageing Milestone, some five months after it hit the US version of the handset.
The OS update brings a slew of new features to the handset including the option to use your Milestone as a de facto wireless mobile broadband dongle via tethering to get online with up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Users are also in line for an enhanced web browsing experience, plus support for Abode Flash Player 10.1, new security options (think: remote wipe and device lock) and slicker switching between your most used apps.
Prior to today’s OS bump, frustrated owners of the rebranded version of the US hit phone the Droid had been stranded on the Éclair or 2.0 version of Google’s platform.
Moto stated: “Due to the extremely high number of requests for the Android 2.2. software upgrade, we are making the upgrade package available to consumers who wish to voluntarily upgrade their own devices via MSU.”
Droid owners on the other side of the Pond got Froyo back in August. The cause of the lengthy delay in making it available to us Fandroids in Europe is as yet unexplained.
