Android Donut Sneak Peek

pink_sprinkled_donutSo Google has finally released the code for Android Donut (which also turns out is NOT 2.0 as originally thought, but a version somewhere between 1.5 and 2.0).

And reported new features are as follows:

  • System wide MultiTouch (conflicting reports on whether this is true or not so time will finally tell).
  • Universal Search
  • Text to Speech
  • Automated Backups
  • New Camera App (the original is horrible, so thank god)
  • and Better Performance

Also one other noticeable feature that will not make any current Android owners excited, but will get some Sprint/Verizon users excited; CDMA Support Built In to the OS. Which means that a CDMA release (on Sprint most likely) is imminent.

Also the main person who seems to be providing images and some news abotu features is Cyanogen from Which means to me, that we might have a Donut custom ROM in the works for those with Rooted G1’s. 🙂

Check out some of the new features in a Google conference:
