U.S. Cellular announced today that it's pushing Android 2.2 Froyo to its Samsung Acclaim smartphone. You can't get the update over the air--you'll have to actually connect your phone to a PC--but that's a small price to pay for all the goodness that Froyo brings. Here are a few of the highlights as listed on U.S. Cellular's site.

  • Fully integrated support for Microsoft Exchange (e-mail & calendar)
  • Use the Acclaim as a mobile hot spot through the carrier's 3G network for five to eight users
  • Save applications to the microSD card on the device
  • Faster downloads of Web pages with Android 2.2

Though U.S. Cellular also lists Flash 10.1 support as a Froyo benefit, you have to scroll way down to learn that the Acclaim won't support viewing of Flash media. Two steps forward, one step back.
