Found the email about the ZIO coming out with 2.2.

As planned , the new promotional pricing for the Zio 1.6 has generated a LOT of excitement and sales this year. Our order volume have increased by 4 fold since the Holidays. We have been working closely with Kyocera for the best process to transition to the ZIO with Android 2.2 (Froyo).

A few key items to note:

As of today,ZIO with Android 1.6 inventory is out of stock atBrightpoint
Since the sell through of Zio 1.6 has been faster than anticipated, we are working with Kyocera to accelerate the introduction of the ZIO with Android 2.2. Availability should be in the late-February/early-March timeframe.
Consequently, we anticipate that for most of February Zio product will not be available at Brightpoint.
also about 2.2 going to older phones running 1.6:
Please continue to sell existing channel inventory of the Kyocera ZIO. This incredible smartphone still works great with Android 1.6 and customers who purchase this device will be able to upgrade to Android 2.2 in the very near future.
