Donut_droidThose Android folks are busy as can be and have released to developers the first version of Android approved for policemen. Android 1.6, AKA Donut, adds some significant new features like CDMA support in the telephony stack. I have to admit I thought Android could already fully support CDMA, which is the technology behind the Sprint and Verizon networks in the U. S., but apparently that was not the case.

Donut enables a new Quick Search box to the interface, and also adds a new camera interface among other things. While this is the version of 1.6 for developers Donut should be available for consumers in a month or so. Carriers willing.

  1. I’m running Cyanogenmod 4.1.10.1 experimental which has a lot of Donut features enabled. I really like the new market place and the global search. The ROM is fully customized so you can’t truly compare it with Donut. For the sake of the Android platform, I hope that the official donut release will give users at least half the speed increase that Cyanogen’s ROMs give me.

    1. Are you joking me? The Cyanogen ROM is what made me dump my G1 for a Pre. Not only did it break tethering, the ROM was just as slow as the previous jfrek ROM and buggier.

  2. am i wrong, or is there still no official multi-touch support in the OS?
