Android 2.2 Google TV At Google I/O This Week
Android 2.2 Google TV At Google I/O This Week – Google’s open source Android operating system will likely be taking center stage at the upcoming Google I/O, which is set to launch on May 19. The operating system will be running on the Nexus One devices and will have support for flash. This is a feature that has long haunted users of the competing iPhone. The iPhone has refused to work out a deal that would bring Flash to the phone, a deal that Google has reportedly been able to strike with Adobe. Google is also linking Android phones with GM’s OnStar roadside assistance service. This is a great addition to the smartphone platform that will likely be able to help millions of users.
The Google I/O conference launches May 19 and years later, the industry insiders may be able to look back at this one particular event to pinpoint a large jump in the technology that we use on a day to day basis. Last year the conference brought the world Google Wave, which sparks a love affair with real time collaboration software over the course of the next few months. Now Wave is not considered to even be significant on most tech radars, even though the service has over 1 million users.
Adobe recently confirmed that the latest version of flash would in fact be present on phones that ran using the Android 2.2 operating system. The two systems will likely require some testing before going live.
Another huge rumor is that Google TV will be making its first appearance at the event. The platform and service is said to run web applications through set top boxes and onto televisions.*Sponsored Links*
