Android 2.2 (aka FroYo) is coming next week and there are many reasons to get excited. No official roadmap is available, but we are expecting many additions to Android including a major performance boost, possible Apps2SD support, Flash 10.1, an updated Android Market, native tethering, and a new desktop.
Google employees are required to keep quiet, but we have spotted them dropping hints. Dan Morrill buzzed, “Oh man, I wish I could talk about how awesome Google is making this vacation with unreleased features for a couple different products”, former employee Cedric Beust said, “prepare to be blown away by what you will see very soon”, and Justin Mattson tweeted that the FroYo sculpture arrived at the Googleplex.
I had been following the Custom Creations Flickr account waiting for new pics of the giant FroYo, but they have yet to upload any. Thankfully TechCrunch also realized a new sculpture was coming and they sent a coworker over to snap a few pics. Pics and video after the jump.
