Donut - Android Codename

Donut is the dessert-themed Android codename for the version 1.6 update of the open source Android mobile operating system.  Donut made its debut in fall 2009 for a variety of smartphones, adding new features like support for CDMA smartphones, support for additional screen sizes and a text-to-speech engine.

Donut followed an earlier update for Android – Cupcake (v1.5) – and has since been superseded by more recent Android updates Eclair (v2.0), FroYo (v2.2), Gingerbread (v2.3), Honeycomb (v3.0) and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update.
