Rosemary’s Baby: iPhone 3G and Android 2.2 Froyo Combine to Form Adobe Flash for iPhone

Rosemary’s Baby: iPhone 3G and Android 2.2 Froyo Combine to Form Adobe Flash for iPhone

It is truly a wish born of a ritualistic and unnatural set of events put in motion by a port of Google's Android 2.2.1 over to the iPhone 3G, allowing then Apple's IOS and Google's Android Froyo OS to have a baby named Flash on the iPhone. The entire process is basically illegal, so don't actually do it if you fear the law or have any hope for getting into Apple or Google heaven, requires that you jailbreak your iPhone. After broken, you'll need to install Cydia (not approved in any way by Apple), add a repository to Cydia, and download the package by the name "iDroid" for either your iPhone 3G or original iPhone.

Froyo roundup: DROID 2 to launch with Android 2.2; updates for Galaxy S and Vodafone Nexus One dated

Froyo roundup: DROID 2 to launch with Android 2.2; updates for Galaxy S and Vodafone Nexus One dated

Lashings of Froyo rumor over the past twenty-four hours, with talk of Android 2.2 headed to various high-end handsets.  First off, spyshots have tipped the Motorola DROID 2 as launching on Verizon with Froyo preloaded according to Droid-Life, rather than the Android 2.1 OS we've seen on the DROID X, while elsewhere there's talk of Android 2.2 updates for existing devices.

That includes a Froyo update for the Vodafone Google Nexus One as early as next week, with the carrier-branded device finally getting what unlocked users have been enjoying for a few weeks now.  Handy, since Google has announced that they'll soon not be offering the unlocked version themselves, leaving it up to carrier partners to supply the phone.

Motorola is Focusing on Android for Now, Talks About Tablets & HTC

Co-CEO of Motorola, Sanjay Jha, decided to open up in regards to just about anything that his company might be thinking about for the future, which included HTC, tablets (of course), and where he and his company stand on that proprietary Operating System (OS) he mentioned a few months back. There's not a lot that we didn't see coming, and definitely no surprises here, but nevertheless it's always good to hear it coming from a company's Chief Executive, rather than the rumor mill.

Android 2.2 Froyo on Nexus One Right Now Isn’t the Official Release

Android 2.2 Froyo on Nexus One Right Now Isn’t the Official Release

To anyone out there that's running Android 2.2 right now, what's being lovingly called Froyo by Google and everyone else, you're probably having some pretty smooth sailing right now. And with that smooth sailing, and all those bundled features for your heart's content, you probably assumed that this was the final build from Google that got pushed out to some Nexus Ones last week. That's apparently not the case, if a Google employee is to be believed.

Motorola Droid Will Receive Android 2.2 in the Near Future

You have to love the careful wording of any company out there. But, to be honest, this one from Motorola seems to ring a little differently. Almost like a different tone. Maybe that's just because we have way too much faith, or hope. Either way, we reached out to Motorola, looking for a comment pertaining to future updates to their devices and how that all relates to Android 2.2, or Froyo if you prefer. And believe it or not, it's good news.

The Daily Slash: May 20th 2010

Only 11 more days left in the month, and today marked a pretty loud, and impressive, announcement from Google. Of course, there's just 11 more days in the month, and that means June's getting closer and closer. And we all know what's coming in June. Tonight though, in typical Daily Slash fashion, we'll focus on what else happened out there today. First up, in the Best of R3, we've got a report card with some pretty impressive statistics, and Versace has a new phone out (it's "unique"). And then in the Dredge 'Net, Steve Jobs isn't a fan of WebM, the white iPhone HD looks very sleek when it's rendered, and it looks like the AT&T Pre Plus has been given an unlock.

WiFi tethering spotted in Android 2.2 Froyo

If we weren't already excited by the prospect of a faster smartphone experience when Android 2.2 Froyo arrives, the news that the updated OS packs native tethering support would be enough to get us chomping at the bit.  According to TechCrunch, Android 2.2 will deliver not only USB tethering - allowing for a wired hook-up from your phone to a netbook, notebook or other device - but WiFi hotspot functionality, basically turning your device into a MiFi-style mobile router.
