Wow, this thread has got out of hand. First off, Google's isn't going to release Froyo for all Nexus One users in one day. It will be some type of rollout. I think those wishing to get it the day they announce it are going to be pretty disappointed. Google I/O is a developer conference. Since developer's haven't even gotten their hands on the 2.2 SDK, I don't see what good releasing it during the conference would have.
Google has created a froyo-release branch in the webkit repo. Comparing master...froyo-release for android's platform_external_webkit - GitHub So, slowly they are populating AOSP. An SDK isn't too far off.
Whether you like the iphone or not, Apple has an unbelievably huge following. Don't get me wrong, I love my Nexus One, but I think it's a little much saying that a software update for Android will steal thunder from the release of a brand new iphone. That release is going to be super major for Apple and the phone is going to ride enormous waves of hype when it comes out. Most people are not into phones like we are and will probably have no idea about the Android software update. The iphone is so ubiquitous at this point, I'm not sure anything short of revolutionary is going to steal its thunder. If that's what Google is waiting for, I think its as big a miscalculation as selling the N1 only online.
