Android part II

Looks like the next major release of the android platform is coming out soon with a few interesting features:

This are some of the user features I'm looking forward to..

  • Faster Camera start-up and image capture
  • Much faster acquisition of GPS location (powered by SUPL AGPS)
  • On-screen soft keyboard
  • SIM Application Toolkit 1.0 (think MPESA, ZAP)
  • Google applications
  • Batch actions such as archive, delete, and label on Gmail messages
Full feature list for both users and developers are here:

Nothing about battery life though. The best way it seems is to turn off data and GPS when not using them.
