iPhone OS 4.0 Contender: Android 2.2 or 3.0?

Google knew that they had to offer a counter-attack to Apple after its announcement of iPhone OS 4.0. The search engine giant did not disappoint with the unveiling of Android OS 2.2 Froyo. If you put the latter with the likes of the HTC Droid Incredible then the 3GS running iPhone OS 3.0 has no chance, but put the 4G with iPhone OS 4.0 and it is a totally different story.

We know that Google’s mobile OS is one of the best on the market, but the launch of iPhone OS 4.0 will change all of that. However, all is not lost and there is another contender to Apple’s latest mobile OS — Android 3.0. The software is a long way off, but when it comes we can expect something special.

There are those who believe that Android 3.0 Gingerbread will be released before the year is out — but that is being a little optimistic. Although we can rest assured that Google will study the good and the bad points of iPhone OS 4.0 and than makes the necessary adjustments to its own mobile operating system.

In a recent article we showed you some of the first screenshots of Gingerbread, and we can tell you that it is the best looking Android interface yet.

Which Android OS do you think will be a contender for iPhone OS 4.0 — 2.2 or 3.0?
