A new version of the Android operating system is rumoured to be on the verge of an official announcement. The current, latest, version of the OS, 2.1, has been in operation for around three months but it is rumoured to be about to be supplanted by the new iteration, version 2.2, codenamed Froyo.
Observers believe that the new version of Android will be officially announced on 19 May when Google’s annual I/O conference, in San Francisco, launches. Observers believe that Google’s own Nexus One mobile phone will be the first handset to adopt the new OS, according to the Phone Arena website.
Proposed features for the new upgrade are hard to come by and confirm. However, sources say that the overall performance will increase, Flash 10.1 will be included along with a greater possible RAM capacity, FM radio, OpenGL ES 2.0, a JT compiler and colour trackball activation.
