As far as we know this is Froyo’s first outing onto the interweb and according to the guys over at Android Police, Froyo is 450% faster than its predecessor. Now that’s speedy. This test was based on running Linpack for Android, which in a nutshell tests the performance of the heart and brains of Android (or Dalvik VM if you want to get technical). Google is currently keeping schtum on official details. In fact the only feature confirmed for version 2.2 is Flash 10.1 – but we knew that. Considering Google is planning to unveil Android 2.2 later this month, we think we can patiently wait for its arrival to put those speed claims to the test. It was only a few seconds worth of Froyo, but what do you think? Did you manage to spot anything we didn’t? Given that it was showcased on Google’s answer to the iPhone, it’s likely Google Nexus One owners will be among the first to get the 2.2 upgrade. So if that includes you, expect a speedy upgrade very soon – and be sure to tell us what you think in the comments below.
