Android 2.2 unveiled by Google better security

Google have just announced details of Android 2.2 and it has been promised that this will be much faster and will be able to allow developers to add security and also be able to change the phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The report comes from Stuart Corner at itwire.com which gives further information in relation to the Android 2.2. Android SDK Tech Lead Xavier Ducrohet has said that a new Dalvik JIT compiler in Android 2.2 which if you didn’t already know is codenamed Froyo would be capable of delivering somewhere between 2 and 5 times the performance of Android 2.1 in CPU bound mode.

The browsing performance has been improved and it now has the V8 JavaScript engine included within the Android browser. This has given a result of between 2 to 3 times improvement in JavaScript performance against 2.1.

The interworking with Microsoft Exchange has also been improved by Google with account auto discovery and calendar sync. Some phones will be able to be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot which will provide access to the internet via the phones data link. The Bluetooth has also been improved with the addition of voice dialling over Bluetooth plus much more. Although no exact date has been given it has been implied that this could be a short distance away.
