Android 1.6 Released for Developers, Adds CDMA Telephony Support

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.
