Froyo For Android: Tethering, Enterprise-Friendly, Handles More Monsters

Right now at Google I/O engineering VP Vic Gundotra is going over all the new features of Android's newest release, dubbed Froyo . It is chock full of updates, including WiFi tethering ( told ya ), Microsoft Exchange support, APIs for enterprise device management, faster Javascript performance, auto-updating apps, and a new way to send data from a computer to an Android phone. The Send-To-Android feature is particularly elegant. It is part of a new device messaging API. When someone sends a map or article link to your phone, for instance, instead of sending you the link via email or SMS, it actually launches the map or Webpage being sent. Gundotra showed this feature using a TechCrunch article (thank you). It launched the page right in the Android browser after being sent from a PC browser. Same for a map.
