Google Says Android Froyo Isnt Optimized For Tablets

With Android 2.2 Froyo being the current and popular version of Android that is being used on many devices, it might seem a little worrying to some folks that Google’s director of products for mobile, Hugo Barra, claims that Froyo isn’t optimized for use on tablets. According to him, which devices will work well, and which won’t, will be unit specific, believing that the onus is on manufacturers to ensure that Froyo works well on their devices. Perhaps the upcoming Gingerbread and Honeycomb versions of Android will be more tablet-friendly, not that we’re complaining about the current functionality of tablets running Android 2.2.
