    Myriad Group AG is preparing to release a new engine called "Dalvik Turbo". It will replace the standard Dalvik that is currently running your apps right now. They claim that it runs apps THREE TIMES FASTER, meanwhile increasing battery life. Too good to be true? Time will tell. Myriad is supposed to be demo'ing this engine this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

    Your change of avatar really confused me...

    From what I have read it's just Dalvik with a JIT compiler enabled, and the 3x speed increase is supposedly what Google was seeing with their alpha JIT. However Google's JIT is supposedly very unstable at the moment (hence the alpha designation).

    Either way, we will certainly see performance increases with JIT tech once they get it all worked no matter who the update comes from. What I'm mostly curious about is if they managed to out-code Google and get their JIT faster or more stable.

    Considering that company is part of the Open Handset Alliance, it is likely they will release the source back to the Android open source project.

    Umm ... sure that kernel breaks the WiFi. But the fix takes about 20 seconds with your eyes closed ... so what's the problem? ;)
