Multitasking the Android Way 

,----[ Quote ]
| Android is fairly unique in the ways it 
| allows multiple applications to run at the 
| same time. Developers coming from a 
| different platform may find the way it 
| operates surprising. Understanding its 
| behavior is important for designing 
| applications that will work well and 
| integrate seamlessly with the rest of the 
| Android platform. This article covers the 
| reasons for Android's multitasking design, 
| its impact on how applications work, and 
| how you can best take advantage of 
| Android's unique features.
| [...]
| So far, we have a way for applications to 
| implicitly do work in the background, as 
| long as the process doesn't get killed by 
| Android as part of its regular memory 
| management. This is fine for things like 
| loading web pages in the background, but 
| what about features with harder 
| requirements? Background music playback, 
| data synchronization, location tracking, 
| alarm clocks, etc.

| BGR is reporting that Adobe will be giving

| confirmed yet, it is believed that Adobe 
| will give their employees a phone running 
| Android 2.2 with Flash so that they become 
| comfortable developing with Flash on the 
| Android platform.

| So, it sports Android 2.1, comes in three 
| colors, has Swype installed, and has a 
| pretty nifty screen. What's missing from 
| this press release though? How about a 
| processor speed?



Google Android 2.2 / FroYo: Successor Codenamed Gingerbread

,----[ Quote ]
| As FroYo has not even been released yet

| scarce, however we have heard that

| 2.6.33 or 34, whether it will be Android
| 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5 is also unclear.
