Happy 2012! To start off the new year I’m pleased to announce that Geekbench 2 for Android is now available on the Android Market.

Geekbench 2 for Android uses the same tests as other versions of Geekbench 2, meaning the results are comparable across platforms. Not only can you compare the performance of over 600 different Android devices, you can also compare the performance of Android phones against Apple iPhones, or Android tablets against Windows laptops.

Geekbench 2 for Android, like Geekbench 2 for other platforms, is also multi-core aware. This enables Geekbench to measure the performance of today’s dual-core Android phones and tomorrow’s quad-core Android tablets.

Finally, Geekbench 2 for Android works with the Geekbench Browser. You can upload, share, and compare your Android results with people all over the world.

Geekbench 2 for Android is available today in the Android Market for only $0.99.
