Google announces Android 2.0 platform


Android 2.0 brings new developer APIs for sync, Bluetooth, and some other areas. Developers can now write applications to enable users to sync their devices to various contact sources. With the new Bluetooth API, developers can easily add peer-to-peer connectivity or gaming to their applications.

Google has published a full list of improvements but amongst the improvements here are the best ones we have found:

  • Email – Exchange support
  • Messaging – Search support
  • Camera – Built-in flash support, Digital zoom
  • Keyboard – Improved virtual keyboard to help with correct characters and typing speed
  • Browser – HTML5 support, double tap zoom, tap the address bar for instant searches and navigation
  • Bluetooth 2.1 support, Object Push Profile (OPP) and Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) support

With the amount of operating system additions and improved support for multiple screen sizes and Bluetooth 2.1, we’d expect to see a whole range of new Android devices ready for when 2.0 is ready.
