There doesn't appear to be much to it functionally, other than eye candy and the gps fix. Exchange can now remote-wipe the whole phone via the native email app.
If you set the msconfig server to auto (see my post, part of the stickied 'gps fix' above), turn on all the options (use networks, gps, sensors) the gps locks in under 10 seconds, all the time, every time. That's enough of a fix to make it worthwhile, in my book.
Just my 10 scents,

FroYo brings to the table just-in-time (JIT) compilation (http://www.androidcentral.com/benchm...roid-21-eclair) which speeds everything up. Webpages load faster programs run smoother. FroYo also brings full Flash capability for websites so you can have the full experience if you want it (i.e., play Flash-based games, watch TV episodes online from ABC, NBC, etc.). Wireless tethering is now native on the phone, instead of having to root it and install a third party app. The GPS fix works OK, but I have found that I still have issues with My Tracks and Navigation - standing still I get almost an instant lock, but using any of those programs GPS wanders some - I set it to cold start and Auto Config, which has worked the best for me.
Some have been questioning whether ATT will keep MobileAp (wireless tethering) on the phone when 2.2 becomes official. Because of that, I went ahead and installed the Beta version so I could have that capability. If it is still available on the official build, I will go ahead and update.Motorola Droid > HTC Aria > Samsung Captivate (Serendipity 7) > Virgin Mobile Optimus V (CM7) > Motorola Atrix > HTC Flyer

Wifi reconnects much more reliably.
There seem to be MANY little things. I had a non-Smasung charger that charges a separate battery and USB. Through USB under 2.1 it would charge to 85% but on 2.2 it goes to 100%. Little things. It's faster.
Get it while you can. I bet the official one will have more stuff removed (tethering).

I got leaked 2.2 working no problems at all. But it was too slow. Went back to 2.1, then installed Cognition 2.2 Beta ROM...I am soo happy with it being rooted and Ryans OCLF already installed so you can install EXT2 files and LagFix it, pretty damn quick!

Running the Cognition Beta makes this phone twice as fast, IMO. This is why I bought this phone. 2.2 is definitely worth it. Also, the ease of having a wireless access point for my ipad and laptop is definitely a plus. much better than wireless tether or PDAnet.
