Google taking shots @ Apple. . .ha, ha this is some funny stuff!

Check it out, Google taking shots at Apple ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ˜ฒ ๐Ÿคค
You should be happy right about now
Apple can code, Google can't.

Not a good thing when your earlier topic was "Android phones are only getting 4 hours of battery life" ๐Ÿคฃ

"That doesn't work..."

So if you own an HTC Hero, LG Ally, Motorola Devour, Droid Eris, Samsung Moment, T-Mobile MyTouch, you're SOL. And of course as we know from the Flash demos, Hulu doesn't work.

Even though all of those devices are able to decode H.264 perfectly.


On the plus side, I'm sure they'll all envy the ability to view those awesome animated "1 trick to a flat belly" ads. ๐Ÿคฃ
Porn will work ๐Ÿ˜
I have skyfire on my hero, and i can play movies from hulu.

So, 2.2 will be coming to the Droid afterall, how bout that!!!

It'll probably take 4-6 months though because of Vzn's involvement. Uh-oh, I just thought of something, I didn't see any mention of Google enabling the saving of apps2sd card in 2.2, that's really important to me, I don't want the internal memory of my Droid to be all bogged down!
Memory bogging down? That's odd, I don't seem to have that issue with my iPhone *OR* Pre! ๐Ÿคฃ

my thing is, it's 2010. doesn't it seem smarter to just route the saving/installing/running of apps from the sd card? Windows mobile 6.0 was able to do that on the htc dash years ago. i believe google's reasoning behind it is "app security/copyright i...
From the wording, it sounds like Motorola, Verizon, etc are working CLOSELY with Google to launch this ASAP
from front page, "Among other new features, Android users will now be able to store apps on external memory, instead of the device's internal storage. This should allow for larger apps, which will include more advanced games."
"Among other new features, Android users will now be able to store apps on external memory, instead of the device's internal storage."

...uh, like a micro sd card?
I Thought In The Article It Stated That We Will Be Able to Save Apps To External Mem Vs The Internal Storage On The Dvcs??? Am I Reading It Wrong? ๐Ÿ˜•

Android 2.2 Platform highlights:

http://developer.android.com/sdk/android-2.2-highlig ... »

Some things that arn't in the news release that people might love:

Exchange/Corporate set up:
Improved security with the addition of numeric pin or alpha-numeric password options to unlock device. Exchange administrators can enforce password policy across devices.

Remote wipe: Exchange administrators can remotely reset the device to factory defaults to secure data in case device is lost or stolen.

Exchange Calendars are now supported in the Calendar application.

Dialing over Bluetooth
Improves compatibility with car's and headsets.

Support for more than 256MB of Ram. Newer devices should see signifigant memory increase.

And more ...
finally! dialing over bluetooth
So do you think the almighty wireless carrier will disable the wifi tethering that is being incorporated into 2.2?

I can FINALLY go to my favorite sites on my N1 now! I do love the multiple app updates, i have a ton of apps and this will make things easier.

Well since you have a N1 doesn't that mean 2.2 is available to you *now*?
Uh,...Google says not just yet, appearently even you N1 owners are included in not just yet.

I read on Yahoo a month or so ago that a lot of Blackberry owners are willing to jump ship for Android, soon we'll see these numbers flip!

Apple does this kind of stuff ALL THE TIME. Taking shots on the competition is how they like to go "Oh we're better at this on that then this company!"
