Android 2.0 Donut Build Released: Multitouch, Universal Search, Better Performance

Android 2.0 Donut has been made available to developers and it’s an oh so lovely update—we can expect full multitouch, universal search, automatic backups, text-to-speech, a new camera application and even better performance. All these new features make Android all the more appetizing and certainly puts it on par with the newer features of iPhone 3.0 and the Palm webOS.

What’s perhaps most interesting is that Android 2.0 has added CDMA support, which means carriers such as Sprint and Verizon will be able to get in on the Android action. May we see a Sprint HTC Hero like earlier reports suggested? We know T-Mobile isn’t getting it.

Hopefully we can get a working build of Donut onto a T-Mobile G1, we might be even more excited for Donut than we were for Cupcake. What about you guys?


  • multitouch has been denied by google unfortunately. though it is likely to be enabled on custom roms
  • I thought you would know better than post complete BS. Let's start with the fact that Donut is NOT Android 2.0 and then move on to the other fact that it has not been released, it's just the code in the repositories that has been updated with some new stuff. Shame on you for not even bothering to read and check your own info.
