latest batch of Android platform stats, breaking down the OS versions of devices accessing the Android Market within the two weeks ending December 1 2010. According to the figures, Android 2.2 is now present on 43.4-percent of active devices, with Android 2.1 trailing at 39.6-percent. That flips the balance from the same period one month earlier, where Android 2.1 was the most prevalent version and Froyo lagged behind. [Thanks Si!]
disgo Tablet 6000 doesn't necessarily only do budget functionality. For instance, there's WiFi b/g/n and a miniHDMI port, as well as two USB ports (one Host, one Device) and, according to disgo, a separate 2D/3D graphics chip capable of HD. It runs Android 2.1, though sadly lacks Android Market access, and is available this month for £179.99 ($285). [via SlashGear]
Engadget show, “Froyo”, (also known as frozen yogurt to the masses), is the codename for Google’s next version of the Android mobile OS. Alphabetically speaking, many were thinking Flan. Apparently there aren't many flan geeks in Mountain View.
jealous about the Taiwanese HTC Magic getting that update, well, there's more to be jealous about. The HTC Hero will be getting an update sometime soon in the form of the Eclair (2.0). HTC have confirmed to our good freinds over at SlashGear that they’ll be offering an update to Android 2.0 for the HTC Hero. HTC is asking that owners “be patient”, since they are not giving an exact date for the release. Here's the statement from HTC:
Yes, we are working on an Eclair update for the HTC Hero. Because Eclair is a significantly enhanced release, it will require some time to update Sense for this new version of the Android OS. Please be patient while we work to provide you with a tightly integrated experience like the one you are already enjoying on your Hero.Now, how will this be rolled out on to the different Android carriers, well, that is a mystery. What we know is that, the original European GSM version of the Hero, as well as the CDMA Sprint version, will both get it.
has announced Android 2.0 Eclair, and anyone with any doubts about the platform's prowess should take a look at the changelist to see just how serious the search giant is. OS 2.0 brings with it support for multiple simultaneous Google and Exchange accounts, together with quick contact menus for speedier access to different methods of communication. There's also a unified email inbox and SMS/MMS search. The camera now has native flash and digital zoom support, together with white balance, color effects and macro focus. HTML5 support has been added to the browser, together with double-tap-to-zoom, and there are now thumbnails in the bookmarks pane. It's possible to set the SMS/MMS inbox to automatically delete old messages once it reaches a preset size, and there's support for Bluetooth 2.1 and the OPP and PBAP profiles. We're expecting to see Android 2.0 appear with a flourish on the Verizon Droid by Motorola tomorrow. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opZ69P-0Jbc[/youtube][gallery] [via SlashGear]
