1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Yeah I caught that too. I was hoping they showed more of 2.2 but Flash was the highlight. It looked good but on a Nexus. Hmm

    Flash ran VERY well. If the reason it took a while to finally get it out is they were just optimizing it to run as well as this, then I'm ok with it. :)

    Yessir Flash, looked nice. Very glad he went to multiple sites and demo'd a few of the Flash features.

    I was noting the speed increase reported..
    Code:
    [B]Update:[/B] How much faster is a Nexus One running Froyo?  450 percent faster, according to the [I]Android Police[/I]. They claim  to have a device running the as-yet-unreleased firmware that can  perform over 37 million floating-point operations per second in the [URL="http://www.engadget.com/tag/Linpack/"]Linpack[/URL] benchmark...  compared to about 7 megaflops without. Oh yeeaaah. 
    
    While I and many others have been waiting for some time for the flash release and also looking forward to Froyo I find myself a bit concerned that all these speed increases and demos are now taking place on a nexus with its boasting 8G of memory and not of the Droid. I certainly hope the Droids can offer a suitable comparison where flash and speed is concerned (even if it takes an over clock to get it)

    Yes and no.. by oem the sd is intended to be used as a storage medium not an actively used system resource. While some applications can create a seperate partition such as Apps2SD this is still only used as storage and not an active part of the system for 'computation'. Several ports for the senseui for example utilize a swap partition on the SD to simulate the additional resources of other phones but even then you take a hit for the speed the phone uses to read and write. These limits just can't be 'upgraded' away by getting a higher class sd card.

    In the end I am 99% certain the only way to get the most of froyo will have to be a custom rom.

    Yes. Use firefox and get adblock or adblock plus and then get the filterset.g updater. Once you've installed firefox go to Tools->Add-ons and select Get Extensions (at the bottom).

    8G of what memory? My Droid has 16G of memory.

    Nexus user base is tiny, the only group I see pushing the N1 is Google and I can't say they are doing a great job.

    Flash also is working on the Droid...

    I think some are getting the Incredible mixed up with the Nexus One.

    Nexus One specs:
    Capacity

    512 MB Flash
    512 MB RAM
    4 GB Micro SD Card (Expandable to 32 GB)
