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.
With the first month of Apple iPad sales exceeding 1 million units, it's no surprise to hear that International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts there'll be 7.6 million media tablets shipped worldwide this year.
However, according to IDC, this is just the start of a trend that'll accelerate by a compound annual growth rate of 57.4% during the next four years. In 2014, the company says more than 46 million units will be shipped. That's equivalent to over 10% of the predicted market for portable PCs in 2014.
