Android 2.2 Is Finally Official (Video)

I have just mention about the big improvement of Google Android in Global Mobile Phone Market and now seem like Google is trying to develop a new better version of Android. At Google I/O, Android developers has announced the latest version of Android 2.2.  This version comes with five special features:

Performance & speed: The new Dalvik JIT compiler in Android 2.2 delivers between a 2-5X performance improvement in CPU-bound code vs. Android 2.1 according to various benchmarks.

New enterprise capabilities: We’ve added Exchange capabilities such as account auto-discovery and calendar sync. Device policy management APIs allow developers to write applications that can control security features of the device such as the remote wipe, minimum password, lockscreen timeout etc.

Faster, more powerful browser: We have brought the V8 JavaScript engine to the Android browser as part of 2.2. This has resulted in a 2-3X improvement in JavaScript performance vs. 2.1.

Rich set of new APIs and services: New data backup APIs enable apps to participate in data backup and restore, allowing an application’s last data to be restored when installed on a new or a reset device. Apps can utilize Android Cloud to Device Messaging to enable mobile alert, send to phone, and two-way push sync functionality. Developers can now declare whether their app should be installed on internal memory or an SD card. They can also let the system automatically determine the install location. On the native side, a new API now gives access to Skia bitmaps.

Additions to Android Market: Android Market provides Android Application Error Reports, a new bug reporting feature, giving developers access to crash and freeze reports from users. Developers will be able to access these reports via their account on the Android Market publisher website.

    Ok I am writing a bach file that will port a theme for android. I am good on all the rest of the script. I am looking for a command to help save me time. I do not want to copy each file individualy.

    What I have is a file called “Frameworkresdrawable” and inside of the drawable file you have roughly 600 different files. Now I want to copy only the “.png” files to (and replace without asking) another folder located somewhere else labeled the same "Frameworkresdrawable”.

    I am using a command to bulk delete some .apk files in my batch file but I cant seam to get it to work with a copy command.
    del /s Framework*.apk >null

    is there some command that would copy only .png files to another folder? If that is not possible I could delete all the other file types and copy over only the png. But how do I do it batch stile instead of me typing each one in at a time.

    I just dont want to have to do it like this for like 300 pics.
