Consumers could use money for old mobile to access Android 2.2
30 June 2010 — 11:56 AM
Using money for an old mobile phone to upgrade to a device with the new Android 2.2 platform could result in significantly increased performance over the coming months.
Mobile review website T3 notes the operating system - which is dubbed FroYo - is already used by those with a Google Nexus One and HTC will add it to its Desire and Legend handsets shortly.
By choosing a phone with FroYo, consumers will enjoy a range of improvements, notably an increase in speed, with the system's processor said to be about six times faster than the industry benchmark.
It will support the Flash Player, meaning websites that use this will be accessible for the first time, T3 explains.
Users can also make the most of WiFi hotspots to check their emails and browse the web through their mobile's data limit.
Another HTC phone that could benefit from Android 2.2 in the future is the Wildfire model, which was recently recommended as a good alternative to smartphones by Cnet.
