    Thats awesome!

    So for those who have manually updated should still get a OTA!! Because this will be a new build!

    The manual update one was more for "testing."

    Just a guess judging from the above post. The early birds that got the OTA already, build is probably the same one that we updated manually too.

    So if that final build is ready for the OTA, I don't see why we don't get it.

    It didn't take long before Google pulled the update file from their servers. This leads me to suspect that they hadn't intended for it to become public. But thats what happens with the internet and an open source community I suppose...

    aaa google new that we would jump all over it, if they made it available for even 5 minutes. its probably there intention all along to get some real world testing.. Now i hope we do get the final build OTA even if we upgraded already

    what pisses me off is that this only means that we wont see any market improvements until its real release. as far as missing apps

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    Well, I can wait a bit on the Market thing. At least we know they are actually rolling out an OTA now. I don't think the wait will be bad. The current version they rolled out to review units (and we managed to get) is almost perfect. Once the next build for the OTA hits, I imagine they'll want to have everything sorted out.

    the poster who is a google software engineer is getting hassle as he's posting from tweetie on OSX but its showing as posted from tweetie on iphone instead.

    see: "romainguy: Please #Twitter, fix #Tweetie for OS X to stop appearing as the iPhone app. This would help keeping me sane. (about 6 hours ago from Twitter for iPhone)"

    ahh fair enough. Well thats good news if its true then because I've found a few bugs with the froyo version that surfaced over the weekend and it'd be nice for them to be fixed.

    The guys at Google are not dumb, and obviously understand that the update will be getting out to the open source community. This is one of the reasons I like Google - they aren't afraid of the open source community getting the update and starting to tweak it. Google is still all about getting people on the internet, and android is just another method to make the internet more accessible.
