Google announce the Android 2.2 Froyo.

Yesterday Google gave us a look at the latest version of the Android OS, the Android 2.2 Froyo (strange name for an operating system but so is Eclair!). Froyo is bringing a number of significant updates to Android phones including performance upgrades, improved camera capabilities and better app management.

The most anticipated improvement from Android fans is the addition of Flash 10.1 giving users access to every video on the web. There is also a new web browser V8 JavaScript engine to load JavaScript-heavy pages faster than ever before and improved memory management to switch between apps with ease.  Apps can also be adjusted for ‘car mode’ and ‘night mode’ to control them easier in these situations.

For those who love to snap away on their Android phones like our boss Bobbie, Froyo has added onscreen camera keys to control zoom, flash, focus etc and the LED flash can now be used when recording videos. There are also a plethora of other features to make the running of your Android phone and overall better experience.

So who will it affect I hear you ask?

According to HTC most of their Android phones that were released in 2010 will receive the Froyo update including the Desire, Evo 4G, MyTouch Slide and the Incredible. Of course the Nexus One is on the list and will probably be the first to receive the update and we hope the beautiful Legend and Hero get the upgrade to make these devices even better!
