It was said that Android 3.0 operating system will be used in mobile phone these days. As the rumor says, HTC Desire HD and Nexus One will both adopt this OS. All these show that the majority of Android users are looking forward to Android 3.0 eagerly. Although Google has confirmed that Android 3.0 will not be used for mobile phone, we can still expect the Android 2.4 or the next Android OS for mobile phone. In the following, let’s find the eight conjectures on this new coming OS which is said to combine the features of Android 2.3 and 3.0.
As we seen in our Android mobile, the top of home page is always the status bar. However, the status bar will be evolved into a compact program controller. The top of home page will be much improved in the next version of Android OS. When mentioned this improvement, David Burke, the technical director of Android says that the named Action Bar will provide the specific buttons related to application.
2、The status bar will be canceled
In the Android 3.0 OS, Android 2.X system status bar is existed in order to adapt the operation of tablet. After the integration in the next version, the status bar that has gone with Android system all the way may be going to a glorious retirement. The top of the homepage has been replaced by the action bar. However, we still no nothing about how the specific power and signal status and other status will be displayed.
3、Continuation of Hologram 3D style
All those who are expecting use Android 3.0 on mobile phone will surely be tempted with the attractive 3D page switching that shown in the demo video. Fortunately, this feature will also be included in the Android 2.4. The only thing that the users need to worry about is that their own hardware is not powerful enough.
4、Multi-task switching mode
As a matter of fact, many Android users are complaining the slow and inconvenient switching mode. We are happy to see that this has been greatly improved in the Android 3.0 OS. In the new operating system, multi-task will be displayed in a small window in the home page. In addition, the system interface also provides more powerful multi-tasking support. And this feature will be extended without reservation to the mobile phone in Android 2.4.
5、Enhanced NFC function
It’s true that NFC has been supported in the Android 2.3 OS, and this function will be enhanced in the future. For example, it will use the NFC chip when pairing Bluetooth devices during calls. Currently this feature has appeared in the recently released Android 2.3.3 SDK. With the popularity of NFC technology in mobile phones, this feature is also no doubt will appear in the Android 2.4 and enhanced.
The Android 2.3 system has provided multi-camera support. In The next version of the Android system, Gtalk will start supporting video call.
We have widened our knowledge with the same tabbed browser exactly as the computers when Android 3.0 released. However, due to restrictions of mobile phone screen, tabbed browser is currently not sure if it will be used on the phone. Hopefully, the anonymous mode and the synchronization is something to look forward to our mobile users.
8、Support the application of Android 3.0 OS
Compared with the Android 2.x systems, Android 3.0 has been much updated in the interface as well as the supporting for dual-core Application programs. Due to system differences, there are some development for the Android 3.0 applications also cannot be well supported in the Android 2.x OS. If this issue can be solved perfectly, Android 2.4 will be a great combination of mobile phone and tablet.
With these conjectures of the next version of Android operating system, let’s wait for its coming.
