FroYo - Wait!
At the Google I / O conference today was presented Android v2.2 - FroYo .
Some interesting features about her and her innovations:

A few other interesting things were presented on Google I \ O - for example, HTC EVO 4G from Sprint, Google TV. However, Android FroYo also deserves attention as a modified, completed OS.
