Is Android 2.2 being tested?
Google has stopped making a public roadmap for upcoming versions of Android which means we can only take a stab at what it might include. The early word is that the new OS will focus on enhancing performance. Some of the possible features include Flash 10.1, free additional RAM thanks to the new Linux kernel, FM radio, JIT compiler to run software faster, activation of color trackball and enhancements for OpenGL ES 2.0. Adobe has recently said that the Flash 10.1 upgrade for certain Android units will be out in the first half of this year. It is quite possible that it could be sent as an OTA update along with a firmware upgrade. While no date has been set for the launch of the new OS build, May 19th is the first day of the Google I/O conference and, as we reported, attending developers have been promised a free DROID or Nexus One by Google. That would be a perfect time for an upgrade. Of course, here we are talking about Android 2.2 and DROID owners are just getting used to 2.1.
