Nexus One loaded with Froyo shows the processing power bump
Google is planning to release its next major update - Froyo - for the Android OS later this month. The Android Police are bunch of lucky folks who got the Android 2.2 Froyo build on the Nexus One phone for testing. This Froyo build also has Adobe Flash Player 10.1 pre-installed and tests proved that the Froyo is four times faster than the Eclair.
Android Police have tested the Android Froyo and Flash Player 10.1 using the Linpack benchmarking tools. According to the Linpack tools, Froyo scored a whooping 37.5 MFLOPS processing power. The same phone loaded with Android 2.1 Eclair update scores around 6.5-7 MFLOPS. A clear 450% jump in the processing power but not to forget that Nexus One has brilliant hardware inside with Snapdragon CPU.
Google is expected to announce or release the Froyo update at the upcoming Google IO conference on May 16-18 at Google Headquarters.
