Eclair - Android Codename

Éclair is the dessert-themed Android codename for the version 2.0 update of the open source Android mobile operating system. Eclair made its debut in October 2009 for a variety of smartphones, adding support for multi-touch devices, a new browser interface, Microsoft Exchange support, a single interface for managing multiple online accounts, soft keys support and an enhanced camera app (with digital zoom and flash support).

Eclair followed two earlier updates for Android – Cupcake (v1.5) and Donut (v1.6) – and has since been superseded by more recent Android updates FroYo (v2.2), Gingerbread (v2.3), Honeycomb (v3.0) and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update.
