    We now know what Froyo will look like.. and i can say it looks "sweet".

    -Usb and Wifi tether
    -Exchange synch (Contacts & Calendar)
    -Voice Search over BT
    -Apps to SD
    -Multiple Apps Update
    -V8 Javascript
    -Dalvik JIT
    -Remote wipe
    -Application Backup
    -Multiple Keyboard languages
    -More speed
    -and much much more

    Check the highlights for more details http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-2.2-highlights.html

    Let's hope our Dream and Magic will support it. The speed increase would push those a few more miles.

    I'm confident that we'll get it at least on the open market.. This shows us the value and power of developers, open source (thank you google), and even rooters that can communicate the experience. Most of those features are running now on rooted 2.1 and even earlier. My 2.1 has now passed earlier versions in speed and functionality. The official roms and 2.2 will bring even more. I think I can push the Magic long enough to get into the super devices when I'm able.
    (if you are running cyan 5.x check out the today's rev3)

    It's now official G1 and Magic will have to get 2.2 from another source. HTC will offer it only for 2010 models. Can't say i was holding my breath but 3-6 months lifetime is not what i call support :rolleyes:.

    And by the time those phones get their 2.2, Gingerbread will be out.

    Android updates are both very exciting and painfully frustrating at the same time...

    This is pretty standard, abandon all devel on devices as the new comes out. For devices that need or should get updates I always look for linux based devices that have or might get 3rd party devel and user to user support. Devices that communicate, have potential security risks, or could be improved with UI updates such as routers, phones, STBs, etc.
    Thanks to this my very old AP router has continued to evolve and is still very useful despite that is was abandoned by the manf long ago. My Magic is running 2.1 and surpasses any version directly from HTC or Rogers. 2.2 will run on the Magic so I'm not at all worried about what the companies do.

    Well, I've got my phone rooted and running 2.1 smoothly; so I have no doubts that Froyo will run fine on it too.. just have to wait for a dev to port it!

    Just tried the Froyo 2.2 port for 6.35 radio and to my surprise there is nothing really big about this rom. Appart from all the goody that will come with it the performance of my Magic stayed the same. The home is speedy but there is still too many things not working. (wifi, gps, camera, gmaps, etc)

    Did a Linpack benchmark on 2.1 and 2.2 and they stayed in the same range. 2.2x Mflops to 2.3x.

    Any of you on CM tried the latest 2.2 test15 version ? What are the benchmark on it ?.
