Why announce a single device when you can announce a whole new brand with a complete new lineup of devices? Apparently, that's the strategy that LG is taking with its new Optimus series. The main feature of this line is that they will all be powered by Google Android 2.2 froyo, at least for now. Optimus devices include both high-end and entry-level Android devices, so the latter will likely be left out of future upgrades to Gingerbread.

Motorola DROID 2 with Froyo release date could be August 23

The DROID 2 from Motorola is expected to ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Android 2.3 - the Gingerbread man - isn't quite ready for primetime yet. That means that the DROID 2 launch date is being pushed back, and based on rumors making their way to our news desk, the Motorola DROID 2 on Verizon will hit store shelves August 23rd. This gives the red checkmark of a service provider enough time to run stability tests for Froyo on the DROID 2. It will also make things easier for their end users who painstakingly have to upgrade all by themselves.

We all knew this was coming, but it's good to see the official wraps come off of Google Android 2.2, the updated operating system affectionately known as Froyo in techie circles. Yup, they're continuing with the food-based monikers for the mobile platform and this official announcement comes during Google I/O conference. Android 2.2 Froyo doesn't really bring much in terms of surprises, but it does come with at least one quantum advantage over Android 2.1. There's a new compiler, which is supposed to bring a 2-5x speed boost to your everyday functionality.
