05/17/2010, If you happen to own the Nexus One, Motorola Droid (also known as the Milestone in other places) and soon, HTC EVO 4G, then you will be pleased to know that Google’s Android 2.2 update (aka FroYo) will see a whole lot of Flash 10.1 action going on there, since it will come pre-installed without having you choose an optional installation path. All we can do now is wait for […]
05/13/2010, Google seems to step off on the right footing with their upcoming Android 2.2 (FroYo) firmware update that will see the inclusion of USB tethering right from the get go, letting you share your data connection with your notebook or computer wherever you are, as long as there is a decent 3G/HSDPA signal in the vicinity. This is in stark contrast to Apple and AT&T who have yet to enable […]
05/05/2010, Apple might not allow Adobe Flash on its iPhone and iPad, but Adobe doesn’t have any such problems with Google’s Android OS. Now an Android tablet has been spotted at Adobe’s booth at the Web 2.0 Expo. The multi-touch tablet on show is apparently able to run Adobe Flash and Air apps flawlessly. While exact technical details are available just yet, you can check out a video of it in […]
04/27/2010, Impressed with Quake II running on HTML5? Well, those who are on the opposite camp (read: Flash) will be pleased to know that Android 2.2, aka Froyo, will come with support for Adobe Flash. Unfortunately for us, there is no tentative release date for Android 2.2 so we will just have to wait patiently until that hallowed day arrives.
04/26/2010, Android 2.2, also known as Froyo, is set to hit the markets this May with the Google Nexus One (now available on Vodafone UK) could very well be the first smartphone from the Nexus One range to feature this new firmware. What do you think – does Android 2.2 deserve to be released on the Nexus One first, or should it hit other more (in your eyes) “deserving” handsets?
04/22/2010, Looks like the Android 2.2 OS, also known as Froyo, has been caught running on the HTC Magic which is also known as the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, according to the snapshot you see above. Of course, there is no denying that this could very well be a Photoshop job, but anticipation runs high that it is the real deal as well. Are you looking forward to Android 2.2 being released […]
04/21/2010, Word is going around the Google’s next iteration of its Android operating system, Android 2.2 FroYo, might be just around the corner. While there isn’t any official date attached to its release just yet, speculation is that it will be launched on May 19th, when Google I/O 2010 kicks off. Are you looking forward to the improvements that Android 2.2 will bring, or are you more worried that it will […]
04/16/2010, Word has it that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will be getting an Android 2.1 update later in the second half of the year, introducing multitouch capability as well. It is interesting to note that by that time, Android 2.2, also known as Froyo, will be available then, making such an update late to the party. On the bright side, at least it is better than remaining stuck at Android […]
03/29/2010, If you’re using Android 1.5 or Android 1.6, chances are that you’ve come across a cool Android app that you wanted to install, but couldn’t because your carrier hasn’t released the latest version of Android for you yet, so you’re stuck with the old version, unable to install the latest app. Fragmentation has been an issue for Android for the past few versions, especially those that have been left behind, […]
02/09/2010, While Froyo hasn’t been released to the general public yet, information that the next version of Google’s Android after Froyo will be dubbed Gingerbread has surfaced. The update came from Brian Swetland, Android’s Kernel guru, and an excerpt from his post reads: This week we’re finalizing our move to 2.6.32 for the Android “Froyo” release, and we’ll likely be on .33 or .34 for “Gingerbread”. Whatever name Google decides to […]
01/17/2010, It seems that after “Cupcake”, “Donut” and “Ã‰clair”, the next version of Google’s Android OS will be codenamed “Froyo” (short for frozen yogurt), continuing the company’s trend of using tasty stuff for Android codenames. This revelation came from Eric Tseng, Android senior product manager, during a recent interview. There isn’t any additional information on this just yet, especially what new features will be included in the update, but stay tuned, […]
