Android to be 450% faster with Froyo

image_thumb91Androidpolice have done a little detective work regarding the brenchmark speeds of the soon to be released 2.2 upgrade of the Android operating System. Over at their site they have detailed analysis of how and why they believe the operating system will be running at a massive 450% faster than the current version.

Guess we’ll all know next week when 2.2 hits on Nexus Ones worldwide. I wait with baited breath.

Skype will be coming to Windows Phone


There’s a lot of speculation that Skype won’t be going down the portable Microsoft route in the near future. First off the original quote was that they are “not developing software for the new Windows Mobile software due later this year.” However, have a look at the update on Engadget:

Update: Looks like this quote might’ve been taken out of context. MobileTechWorld followed up and learned that while Dan Neary left out Windows Mobile and Windows Phone from a list of currently supported platforms (which makes sense, since one is dying and the other isn’t out yet), he said Windows Phone 7 "is on the roadmap." The question seems to be more of a "when" than an "if" they’ll start building it.

Sounds a little more positive, it seemed massively silly for Skype to not push out something on a platform that is guaranteed to sell a few units.
