More about the Motorola Froyo Update

I just got the details on the updated version of Android on Motorola devices that doesn’t work with Exchange Active Sync: version 2.2 Kernel version Build number FRG22D.

Again, if you are having trouble with this (things were working fine last week, and on Friday or Saturday EAS suddenly stopped working), please contact Motorola and your carrier and complain about this.

I would love to hear about your customer service experiences related to this.


Motorola Pushes an Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update that Breaks Active Sync

Three or Four days ago, Motorola pushed an update to Android 2.2 (Froyo) that broke Exchange Active Sync (EAS). If you have one of these devices and EAS is no longer working for you, you should contact Motorola and your carrier and let them know. In the interim, you can use Touchdown to continue the synchronization of your Exchange mail, calendar, and contacts.

Windows Phone 7 Released to Manufacturing

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the Windows Phone 7 product team has released the Windows Phone 7 OS to manufacturing. I hope it does well, but I fear that MS is too late to the dance.
