Eclair – Android Codename

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Eclair followed two earlier updates for Android Cupcake (v1.5) and Donut (v1.6) and has since been superseded by more recent Android updates FroYo (v2.2), Gingerbread (v2.3), Honeycomb (v3.0) and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update.
