Google Froyo: Five Pillars Of Awesome

Google Froyo: Five Pillars Of Awesome

Google is still unveiling their latest iteration of the Android OS, Froyo, at the Google I/O conference. Google believes that, with all of its improvements, Froyo has the fastest mobile browser in the world. This is in keeping with one of Froyo's five pillars; speed.

Speed will also be served with Froyo's new just-in-time compiler. Google claims (and showed) that this gives 2x to 5x speed-up of apps, all other hardware being equal. Even with complex games and multitasking, frame-rate never dropped below 40 fps. Enterprise is the second pillar, and Google intends to woo that pillar with Exchange friendly security policies and new management APIs.

Application Data Backup APIs were announced as well. The most exciting new API was probably cloud notification. This will allow you to move webpages (in mid browse!) and maps from your desktop (or other mobile device) to your Android phone with a click. Google showed this new API in use and it worked swimmingly.

Tethering and portable hotspot functionality is also coming in Froyo. Carriers will be able to disable that for you, but it will at least exist within the OS. Hopefully more carriers will at least offer tethering plans now, instead of just disabling it as a matter of form.

We have more pillars to go, and the I/O conference is still ongoing. Check out Gearlog's Liveblog for more.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
