I wonder whats so important that it has to remain so mysterious? Obvioisly something big happened right after io. Mystery, conspiracy, intrigue, anticipation....This is utterly fascinating.

This is why Google is hesitant to say anything - they are just picked apart. Tell me why you believe they were set back? The only official statement was that 2.2 would come within a matter of weeks.

I'm currently using Froyo on my phone and it works great. No real issues besides the Navigation sound not working correctly with the Car Dock. So I don't really mind Google taking their time to release the official OTA. Google is adding a lot with Froyo, so I'm not surprised that it's taking them a while to figure out all of the bugs. Hopefully they'll add some more features.

I am not at liberty to share details of what is being worked on, but at a high level we weren't happy with the performance and quality bar we had set for this release. There were also a few last minute bugs that cropped up and wanted to fix them before launch.

Hope that helps. Once again, we appreciate all the support and feedback!

I am not sure that this follow up has made the thread yet, but it looks like there were some bugs, but also Google was not happy with performance of Android 2.2 (maybe speed of the OS, special fixes for the N1 specifically or something else entirely).

Another interesting point is that Google wants us to enjoy their releases probably as much as they enjoy thinking up new features and bringing them to reality.

True, but I'd be happier with an 85% bug free now and the last 15% later than the 100% much later. Also, the 85% bug free is still way better than 2.1 I have now. I've come close to throwing my N1 in a drawer for good a few times.

Actually since it worked so well on my phone I initially thought maybe they were adding cool stuff. I guess the post above by dan seems to indicate there were indeed setbacks. That's too bad I was hoping for the former. Anyway I'm still curious to know what they weren't happy with, because most people with the test version seem pretty happy with it. I guess its good that google has such high standards.

Secondly, I don't know what they are holding up their sleeve, but I hope it's something good. As they're getting "data" back from something.

Hello to you too.

Hey out of curiousity, do you lose data connection when you go into stores/ other buildings? I do more often than not. Seems really lame I'm wondering if it could be my phone...I live in Alamo heights area
