Google announces Android 2.2, codename Froyo

Google has announced Android version 2.2 (codenamed Froyo, an abbreviation of 'Frozen Yogurt' to follow the recent cake-based OS names) at its annual I/O Developer Conference today. It'll be rolled out to compatible devices in the next few weeks.

Android 2.2 offers a number of new features, including support for Adobe Flash within the Android Browser and the ability for some handsets to become a portable WiFi hotspot.

Andy Rubin, Google's Vice President of Engineering, said "The growth of the Android ecosystem continues to exceed our expectations. Every day, 100,000 new people start using Android-based handsets. There are now more than 180,000 active Android developers who have contributed over 50,000 apps to the Android Market. Froyo is another step toward making Android an even better platform for developers, enterprises and consumers."
