Submission + - Android Runs Smooth -- Even on Slower Processors (

CorinneI writes: "At the Mobile World Congress show, four mobile processor vendors demoed pre-production devices running versions of Google's Android OS — a Linux-based, open operating system for mobile phones that will sport Google applications. The biggest surprise of the demos, however, was how well Android runs on slow devices. "TI showed Android on a Motorola Q-like QWERTY handheld with its 200 Mhz OMAP 850 platform, where the user interface felt smooth and fast, even with little Apple-like animated transitions between screens." HTC, Motorola, LG and Samsung all belong to Google's Open Handset Alliance, but which company do you think will be first to sell a phone with the new OS on board?"
