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Donut followed an earlier update for Android Cupcake (v1.5) and has since been superseded by more recent Android updates Eclair (v2.0), FroYo (v2.2), Gingerbread (v2.3), Honeycomb (v3.0) and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update.
