Yes you will not believe that between two versions of Android the execution speed is so high. According to the latest findings, the speed of Android 2.1 in comparison to Android 2.2 “Froyo” is like a pentium 2 trying to match with a Dual Core.

The following is the findings of the AndroidPolice.com:
- the Nexus One running Android 2.1 gets about 6.5-7 MFLOPS
- my HTC Hero averages a measly score of about 2 MFLOPS (the phone is pretty slow indeed)
