Google Android 2.2 FroYo: Review of Features

By now you’ve probably all heard about the new Android operating system 2.2 or Froyo as it’s been dubbed, but how much do you really know about it, other than that we expect it to be launched at the Google I/O developers conference on May 19 and 20?

There’s a really helpful article over on which gives some information and points out a few features. For example according to TechCrunch, phones running 2.2 will be able to act as Wi-Fi hotspots for other Wi-Fi enabled devices.

If you want to know about the operating speed improvements take a look at our earlier article about Froyo for some remarkable figures. There will also be full Adobe Flash support which we know because in an interview with the New York Times, Google’s VP of engineering, Andy Rubin said after Apple stopped supporting Flash that Android would instead.

There’s also speculation that users will be able to instal applications on an SD card but one thing we don’t yet know is which phones will run 2.2, although the Nexus One looks an obvious candidate. For more information on this go to What do you think of what you’ve heard so far about Android 2.2? We’d be interested in your opinions.
