    We just got done watching a VERY exciting keynote coming out of Google I/O, and – as expected – Android Froyo 2.2 has been officially announced. Some of the features we saw demoed were ground-breaking for the Android operating system, and some were ground-breaking for smartphones as a whole. The theme of the announcement was that [...]

    no, its not just messages. You can transfer the whole content + settings to your phone like driving instructions on Google maps that are automatically shown on your Android device in Google navigation after sending them

    For example a facebook notification would be instant instead of having to set an interval for facebook app to check for messages.

    Or instant scoring alerts for football games without the app running and draining your battery

    Basically anything that you set an interval for an app to check for new content/ messages, it would be "pushed" to your phone without the app running all the time.



    So you can go to google maps on your desktop and get directions, then transfer them to your phone. This doesn't seem very useful since you can do it just as easily from your phone.

    So, I've heard mention of an FM radio capability in a few articles. Is this still something that'll be included? If so, is it just certain phones? Having a Moto Droid, I'm hoping since it's got the capability, it will be available. To be honest, it's one of the features I'm looking forward to (that is if it indeed is coming with 2.2)

    "...Android 2.2 will be here soon, and some devices will get the update in the coming weeks. I invite application developers to download the new SDK and tools and test your applications today."

    quote from:
    Android Developers Blog: Android 2.2 and developers goodies.

    I'm expecting this is to make sure that applications run smoothly before they launch it... Lame but understandable.

    I'm really happy about the backup API. I find it ridiculous that current android phones cannot be backed up unless you get root. And I have not successfully managed to root my Milestone yet. :p

    Cloud-to-device is great. We've been working on incorporating it into the Xtify product suite!

    Xtify provides a simple web console and SDK so you can easily implement push notifications to your mobile application users
