Android 2.2 to offer automatic app updates?

More rumours about Android 2.2 have been circulated online, heightening the anticipation among fans that the launch of the update must be drawing near.

One new feature which is expected is the ability for Android to automatically detect when updates for apps are available and then download them from the Android Market silently while handset owners get on with other things.

This may not sound like a revolutionary addition, but it will be something that pleases many hardcore Android users.

Google should allow users to decide which apps get these automatic updates, as a constant feed of data from an untrusted source could leave Android smartphone owners with a malware-infected handset.

The only official information about Android 2.2 that has been confirmed by Google is that it will be called Froyo, with all other new snippets of information coming from fan site Phandroid.

Android fans will still have to wait until the 19th of May for more information about Android 2.2, when Google unveils it to developers.
