Google I/O Day 2: Android 2.2, Flash, and AIR!!!

So much cool stuff out of Google I/O today! New version of Android, Flash Player and AIR news, Google TV… really overshadows yesterday’s keynote in all ways. Another small list of takeaways and links:

  • Android 2.2 “Froyo” – Honestly, Google wiped the floor with Apple’s used up corpse with this release.
  • Flash Player 10.1 for Android – Beta now for Android 2.2 “With Flash on your phone, no website is really out of bounds.  Flash does not appear to be a battery hog, nor does it chew away at your phone’s resources.”Wired
  • AIR for Android – You can read all about it and sign up for the prerelease.
  • Google TV – Google TV includes Flash Player 10.1 integrated directly into the Google Chrome browser delivering the full Web to consumers on their television sets

Now we just have to wait for carriers to ready and distribute OTA Android 2.2 updates… Hopefully it won’t take as long as 2.1 took to get to my Droid.
