The annual Google I/O event is about to start and it’s going to be the hottest event for the Android and Google lovers. The event is going to be mostly about the Android operating system and would showcase the features of the new version of the Android OS. The new version would be the 2.2 and is going to be called the Froyo.
The main features of the Froyo include the latest version of the Flash Mobile from Adobe and a personal favorite of all programmers in the world; a JIT (Just in Time) compiler integrated into the OS. These functions seem to make the Android much better because a lot of people use their Android phones for running nothing else than Flash animations and games. On top of that the new version of Flash would be extremely helpful in playing high quality You Tube videos as well. The JIT would help Android become a more flexible platform in terms of execution of more open source code.
Apart from these improved features the new version of Android is expected to become more Game-friendly because its current versions don’t offer gamers a lot of freedom. We all know that Android is not too welcoming for people who just want to download and run a lot of games. It is for this reason that Google has been considering this issue very seriously and is collaborating with developers to create better compatibility for games.
The I/O event can be followed on the internet on You Tube and second by second updates on Twitter.
