Great news for Virgin Mobile customers who own an HTC Legend came through today, as the Android OS 2.2 Froyo update is now officially available. The update, which can be downloaded/installed OTA (over the air) is available now, and can be accessed by going to Settings, About phone, and then choosing Software update.

The update brings a slew of features and improvements to the Legend, including Adobe Flash 10.1, a revamped UI, and the ability to install applications to external memory(microSD card). Remember to connect to Wi-Fi before performing the update, and while your applications and content should be preserved, backing up important items is always a good idea. HTC Legend users, you can now begin enjoying Froyo!

Rogers customers who own a Dell Streak are in luck today, as the Android 2.2 Froyo update is being rolled out OTA(over-the-air). The update, which brings Adobe Flash support and Dell's "Stage" software, is available now, and Streak users should be prompted to update the next time their phone is rebooted. The other main benefit users will experience with this new OS version is significantly wider compatibility with recently released apps, as many developers are designing their products to function with Android OS 2.0 or higher only.

Note: Some users are experiencing issues when updating their Streak's OTA, stating that they experience repeated "Force close" problems immediately after the update. Be sure to manually back up your crucial data before performing the upgrade. Lastly, if you do experience the "Force close" problem after updating, try navigating the menus and perform a Factory Reset on the device, as this reportedly fixes the problem and leaves you with a fresh Android 2.2 Froyo install.

The moment BlackBerry and gadget fans everywhere have been anticipating for the last few weeks finally came yesterday afternoon, when Research In Motion announced the BlackBerry PlayBook! The PlayBook, which is RIM's contribution to the tablet market, features an array of top-end specifications, and the OS is developed, as rumoured, by QNX.

Let's start with the hardware - a 7" ( 1024 x 600) LCD multi-touch capacitive LCD display/touchscreen, a 5MP rear camera and 3MP front-facing camera, both capable of capturing high definition. Powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, the PlayBook comes equipped with micro USB and micro HDMI ports, and connects to cellular data networks via bluetooth tethering with a BlackBerry smartphone. It also features Wi-Fi (a, b, g, n) connectivity, and comes in at just 10mm thick.

Now on to the operating system and software, it looks like the PlayBook is going to fill in the gaps that Apple's IPad currently has, including FULL Adobe Flash 10.1 support! It also supports HTML 5, an on-screen keyboard, and "true multi-tasking". Video conferencing is made available via the front facing camera, and the device can access your BBM, e-mail, calendar, etc., by pairing with your BlackBerry smartphone.
