At the I/O Developers conference, Google offered an overview of the new features in Android for both users and developers.
At the top of the list of changes are improved speed and support for Flash. The OS also now integrates well with Microsoft Exchange, providing account auto-discovery and calendar synchronization.
In addition, the release comes with a host of new APIs for developers. They include a device policy management API, an application data backup API, and a cloud-to-device messaging API.
Google plans to release the source code within a few weeks, but developers can already download the Android SDK and NDK from the Android developer site.
