New Android OS Offers Mobile Hotspot Support

Google Froyo

Google’s new Android OS for mobile smartphones, codenamed ‘Froyo’ (Frozen Yogurt), is arriving. The version claims to offer additional features including mobile hotspot support. This means you can turn your mobile handset into a mobile hotspot to other Wi-Fi devices.

Google’s upcoming Android operating system (version 2.2) is capable of turning selected mobile handsets to mobile hotspots. You can share your 3G connections with up to eight other Wi-Fi-enabled devices, or tether your laptop via a USB connection.

On top of that, the OS will also have native support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1, unlike the iPhone or iPad which don’t support Flash.

It will also have more support for Exchange, including remote wipe capabilities for administrators, sync support for Exchange-based calendars, and Global Address List lookup from within the Android e-mail app.

Claims to the the “world’s fastest mobile web browser”, Android 2.2 will incorporate various JavaScript and overall performance enhancements. Other features include home-screen shortcuts, redesigned photo settings interface and previewing images in the photo gallery with the zoom pinch gesture.
