Froyo Android 2.2 Build Runs 450% Faster Than Predecessor
Among a list of features that the next generation Android Froyo 2.2–widely expected to be announced at Google I/O conference next week–is expected to bring, the performance improvements seem mind-blowing with early reports showing that the build is 450% faster than Android 2.1 on the Google Nexus One. Site Android Police has used a Linpack test to benchmark the “measure of a system’s floating point computing power.” With that test, the Nexus One on 2.1 got 6.5-7 MFLOPS while running 2.2, the device fared a lot better with 37.5 MFLOPS.
Other features expected for Android 2.2 include full Flash support as well as a new WiFi and USB tethering feature.
