The world got a sneak preview of the next version of Google’s open source operating system, courtesy of an enthusiast blog.
The good folks at AndroidPolice.com have been doing some testing on a Nexus One handset running on Android 2.2, which has yet to hit the market. What they found was a zippy operating system that also supports Adobe Flash, the media playback software that has been famously excluded from Apple’s iPhones and other devices.
Enterprise Mobile Takes a look at the preview of Android 2.2.
An Android enthusiast site has gotten the jump on Google with the suggested release date of Android 2.2, codenamed “Froyo,” and put the Google-backed mobile operating system through its paces. What the site found is a very fast new operating system sporting a version of Adobe Flash — marking Flash’s debut on the smartphone OS.
AndroidPolice.com believes Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) will push Android 2.2 out to Nexus One customers in one week, on either May 19 or 20. Officially, Google has not given a release date for the next version of the operating system.
Google did not respond to requests for comment as of press time.
