According to someone who has already had time to run a benchmark test on the upcoming Android system update, the new version could be up to 5 times faster than the operating system most Android owners are currently using.
The guys over at the Android Police blog were lucky enough to get their hands on an early build of Android 2.2 and they did what anyone else would do - spec the heck out of it!

The new update is already expected to bring major changes, such as an industry-first move to support Flash 10.1 and optimizations to how the OS runs certain scripts, like Java.

And with all that optimization, according to Android Police, your Android phone is gonna start blazing. They ran the phone through a benchmarking test called Linpack, and the results: Android 2.2 scored 37.953 millions of floating-point operations per second (MFLOPS), compared to Android 2.1's 7 MFLOPS.

Don't worry about what "MFLOPS" stands for, but just by looking at the numbers you can easily tell how much more powerful the 2.2 system is.

The update, codenamed "Froyo" (aka "Frozen Yogurt") is expected to be available soon, hopefully this month. So keep your eyes peeled for that exciting system update request.
