Android 2.0 officially announced

By: t-marco October 27th, 2009

Android 2.0

A while ago, Google announced the new Android 1.6 , now, the new Version 2.0 is officially announced. The new Android 2.0 “Eclair” contains two very important sections: SDK support and a comprehensive list of changes in the latest version. Here are the major changes us lay folk are going to care about:

  • Support for multiple Google and Exchange accounts
  • Third-party “sync adapters” allow apps to tie in to the phone’s sync services
  • Quick contact menus for fast access to specific key pieces of contact information
  • Unified email inbox (yes!)
  • SMS and MMS search
  • Text message auto-delete after a user-defined thread size is reached
  • Significantly improved camera controls with white balance, macro, effects, and more
  • Improved keyboard layout, dictionary, and algorithm based on multi-touch support
  • Double-tap zoom in browser, support for HTML5
  • Bluetooth 2.1 support with addition of OPP and PBAP profiles
  • “Better” graphics hardware acceleration

    I love android and with all the improvements ten times more. My favorite thing about it is how much music I can listen too and I would like to know if they plan on adding an equalizer for the music apps, I think it would make my music even more enjoyable.

    May I simply just say what a comfort to discover an individual who actually understands what they’re discussing over the internet. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular since you definitely possess the gift.

    Thanks for making it clear. I’m going to notify my friends about it.
