Google's Android 2.2 Froyo update brings some massive performance improvements. For the first time since their rivalry began, Google has an OS that can compete head-to-head with iOS on performance benchmarks and come out smelling like a rose. Ars Technica did a javascript benchmark between iOS4 and 2.2. They found that Froyo wins in both SunSpider and V8 benchmarks.

The performance gap between these two OS versions is pretty sharp. On V8, iOS scored a paltry 67 while Android topped out at 287. On SunSpider, 2.2 performed almost twice as well as its competitor. Back to the drawing board, Apple. You have some work to do.
