Google Officially Announces Android 2.2
At the event, Google proclaimed that their partners are now selling 100,000 new Android handsets per day, with over 180,000 active Android developers building a network of over 50,000 apps. Apple's App Store just soared past the 200,000 mark, but it's clear that Google's own App Market isn't hurting for variety. One of the major additions to Android 2.2 is the ability to play back Flash content. That's a show-stopper in many ways. Apple's anger towards Adobe ensures that Flash support will probably never come to iPhone OS, so anyone wishing to watch Flash content or view Flash websites on the go will now look to Android. Score one for Google.
