Am I running Froyo?

I have a Nexus one and I love it. It's beautiful, fast, has some kick-ass specs and does what I need it to do.

At Google I/O the Android team at Google announced the latest release of Android, version 2.2 - aka. Froyo. Froyo has a JIT that makes it run a lot faster, and it can do cool stuff like share your 3G connection by setting up an ad hoc Wifi network; allowing nearby computers to access the Internet through your phone.

About a week ago, Google announced it would start pushing the 2.2 update; after which I and many others started checking for the OTA update. Just for the hell of it, I created an Android app that tells you whether your phone has been updated (just that) and published it on the Android Market. The Android apps I've created until now have all been in Nordic languages, and I was curious how this market thing works in practice.

1129 users have downloaded the app, of which 467 still have it installed (41%). The average rating is 4 1/2 stars, and all the comments are nice:

OMG this app made my life so much easier! I use to suffer from
crabs and herpes and now I'm cured!!
Best app in the .market, hands down... ...seriously... ... ...the best... ...

I know, I know, these are mostly humorous comments, but the atmosphere on Android's Market seems to be friendlier than the AppStore. Did I mention that creating and publishing the app was done in no more than 15 minutes?
