"An Android enthusiast site has gotten the jump on Google with the suggested release date of Android 2.2, codenamed "Froyo," and put the Google-backed mobile operating system through its paces. What the site found is a very fast new operating system sporting a version of Adobe Flash -- marking Flash's debut on the smartphone OS.

"AndroidPolice.com believes Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) will push Android 2.2 out to Nexus One customers in one week, on either May 19 or 20. Officially, Google has not given a release date for the next version of the operating system.

"Google did not respond to requests for comment as of press time.

"The site has also been putting Android 2.2 through its paces on a Nexus One phone and was impressed with what it has found. "One of our team members has been playing with a Nexus One running Froyo for about a week now, getting more and more visibly excited every day," wrote Artem Russakovskii, the article's author and the site's editor and founder."
