With all the excitement we’ve had today with the release of Froyo, the Droid 2 almost slipped by us. The folks over at Howard Forums have received some specs and more information on the next iteration of Verizon’s Droid series. The picture of the manual below is none other than the successor of the Droid.
With the release of Froyo today I see there are a few of you that don’t understand how to get it. Well there is three different ways you can get Froyo now other than waiting for the official OTA and I will guide you through all of them.
The guys over at AndroidPolice claim to have a Nexus One running Android 2.2. They conducted a few performance tests on the device and the result was astounding. The Nexus One will run up to 450% faster than it does on 2.1. When you take into account that the Nexus One already could be the fastest phone on the market now, more than quadruple the speed and you will have a true “Super phone” on your hands. If this is true, Google use of that term will be cemented after the release of Froyo.
More information on the Motorola MT820 has recently surfaced. One of which is a name change or sorts, it’s now been dubbed the MT810, codename "North Sea". This phone will work on China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network and WAPI. It will feature 720p video among other things.
You ever want to try out a new ROM but didn’t want to go through the hassle of having to set everything up again, perform a nandroid/bart/switchrom, or reapply your theme again? Now you don’t have to, you can now boot up two different ROM’s on the same device without them conflicting in any way with each other. Now you can, but currently it’s only been tested on the original HTC Hero.
Are you tired of hearing about Flash on Android and not having it on your phone yet? I know I am and with that being said here’s another android device running not only Flash but Air and it does it flawlessly. If a prototype device like this tablet can do it, there’s no reason why finished products that are already on the market can’t (now).
Froyo is shaping up to be the biggest update since 1.5 aka cupcake. If this does come true coupled with Flash integration this may very well be the biggest update to Android since its introduction. Our staff member Extorian has uncovered some dialogue made by a Google employee that pretty much confirms this is coming.
The Android tablets are coming out of the wood work. This is another one that promises to be an affordable option for all your Android needs. It looks pretty good and if the dock comes with it, it would really be a great deal. The version of Android that is preinstalled is not known.
This offering from Dell is a bit toned down from the recent leaks but is still a great device. The Dell Aero will be released for AT&T sometime in the second quarter. It has a 624 MHZ processor and a few other tricks up its sleeve.
Dell is on a full on Android assault, they have many new devices in the pipeline. Seeing as how they entered the game late, they are positioning themselves to offer the most Android devices in the market. This tablet is similar to the Dell Mini 5, aka the Streak, it is a seven inch tablet. Rumors have this thing set for a November release.
