Android 2.2 (Froyo) is fast and includes some great features

The other day, I had the chance to play around with an Android smartphone loaded with Android 2.2 (Froyo). As reported by other bloggers, Android 2.2 is faster, it includes some nice new features (like support for Adobe Flash 10.1) and:
  • New Home screen tips widget
  • Exchange support
  • Portable Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Multiple keyboard languages
  • Improved browser performance
  • faster app switching
  • smoother performance on memory-constrained devices
  • Voice dialing over Bluetooth
  • and more.
So, are you an early adopter? You can search the XDA-Developers forums to see if someone is cooking up an Android 2.2 ROM for your smartphone. Most of the newer Android devices will probably receive the update to Froyo, but if your phone isn't on the list, then maybe it's time to load a custom ROM so that you're not left behind.
