Today was the big news day at Google’s I/O conference, as industry watchers were treated to details on a pair of long-rumored announcements.
Google announced its new GoogleTV service alongside a string of high-profile partners, including Intel, Sony, Adobe and Best Buy. Adobe’s Flash and Intel’s Atom processor will power the service, and Best Buy plans to bring a GoogleTV-enabled set to market this fall.
But is didn’t end there. Google also took the wraps off of Froyo, the long-anticipated version 2.2 of its Android mobile operating system. Enterprise Mobile Today has the details.
SAN FRANCISCO — Google excited a packed hall of developers here during the wrap-up of its big developer’s conference on Thursday. The search giant detailed the next release of its Android mobile operating system, the “Froyo” 2.2 version, and a brand-new product called GoogleTV that brings Web content to television users, both of which elicited applause.
At the heart of both efforts is Google’s dedication to pressing ahead with its open source mobile OS, Linux-based Android, as well as its continued embrace of Adobe’s Flash technology, which will be coming to the newest version of Android and will be the technology powering GoogleTV.
