Android 2.2 and Flash 10.1 coming May 20?

There will be Android related announcements coming in a couple weeks at Google I/O and all signs point to the public unveiling of Android 2.2 (Froyo). We already speculated that Android 2.2 was coming and predicted Flash 10.1 would drop at I/O and now it looks like May 20th is the date. Given that Flash 10.1 is tied to Froyo, this bodes well for a joint announcement.

On the second day of Google I/O, May 20th, there are several Android sessions scheduled for the afternoon that are listed as TBA. They likely have no topic because they are related to Android features that have not been publicly announced. Google did this at last year’s I/O when they revealed Google Wave on the second day and directly followed it up with a series of sessions.

If you follow our Googlers Twitter list you might have noticed several employees tweeting the sessions link and pointing out the TBAs. Recent Google addition Tim Bray (who now runs the Android Developrs Blog) even said, “I don’t think that I’m telling any secrets when I say that there will be Android-related announcements at that event.”

Many insiders believe the Nexus One will be the first to receive Android 2.2, but we could see a simultaneous release on the Motorola Droid. Google already shipped every paid attendee a free Android phone and they were giving out the Droid and N1. Adobe has also regularly used the Droid when taunting us with all those Flash demos.

I’ll even go out on a limb and predict some first gen devices might see an upgrade as well. A new version of the Market was pictured on a myTouch 3G with Android 2.2 and we have been told all first gen U.S. phones will eventually be upgraded. Actually, Google has stopped selling their ADP1 (HTC Dream) so maybe that device is on the way out.

    remember how people was taking bout fragmentation been targeted for the next update, so provably all devices might get the update since it could come without all the extra apps.. like maps, FB, carhome, youtube, etc.
