Can't wait for Froyo (Android 2.2)!

I don't know if anyone follows this stuff but the new version of Android is out on the nexus one and will be distributed to other handsets soon. The performance increase is incredible. It allows a 1ghz snapdragon out run the Apple A4 in some tests. This is just amazing since the A4 is a substantially faster CPU.


All in all, the new OS is going to be awesome.

I really like where Android is going. I'm a big follower of the smartphone world and once I'm up for a new phone I am def going to an android based unit (currently running Windows Mobile). Android is fast, more and more popular, and it is very customizable especially with the ability to flash custom ROMs to your liking.

What WinMo do you have? I went from that to Android and it si a huge upgrade. Android offers pretty much any and all of the IphoneOS slickness, but it still has the upgradability/customizations of WinCE based WinMo.

I have to agree, Android is blowing up. I bought the HD2 which runs on Windows 6.5 and man do i regret it. Dont get me wrong the phone is awesome looking. From the size of the screen to the quality of pics and video but i really want Android back. Cant wait for the developers to crack the HD2 and create and Android Rom for it....they say by October. Winmo is just too laggy in my opinion.

WinMo is too clunky to me. The menus are cryptic compared to IphoneOS or Android. Iphone is just too much of a jail cell for my liking but Android is just right. It has all the customizations you might want but even right out of the box it is so fluid and easy to use.

The iphone is going to loose it's over-hype soon. Look at the market share that Android has garnered in such a short time frame. It's a freight train!

Will this be available in an OTA update or will they just release it as a ROM? Im still SholesMod (Droidmod) 2.1 because im too lazy to keep up with all the constant new roms and updates.

BX10R, why not just get one of the HTC incredibles or Evos instead of having to port onto the HD2?
