Myriad Group, one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance, announced the Dalvik Turbo virtual machine for Android, which will replace the Dalvik engine that currently powers applications on Android phones.
According to Myriad, Dalvik Turbo can increase Android application execution speed by up to three times, without significantly increasing memory requirements. The new Dalvik Turbo virtual machine can also provide “substantial battery life improvements” and supports a variety of processors (based on ARM, Intel’s Atom or MIPS).
Thanks to Dalvik Turbo, Android developers will reportedly be able to create new games (fully compatible with existing Android software) that feature complex models and advanced graphics.
Myriad said that it would demonstrate Dalvik Turbo on Android devices during MWC 2010 – so we should expect Android phones with the new virtual machine to be available soon.
