Goolgle’s Android operating system is being used in most of the mobile phones available in the market at present.

Android 1.6 is said to be based on the donut branch from the Android Open Source Project. This Android Open Source Project promises to introduce a host of new features and technologies in the SDK
The new Android 1.6 SDK will provide support for CDMA and additional screen sizes. This kit will allow developers to develop applications for even more mobile networks and devices. It will also provide access to new and advanced technologies. The new technologies include framework-level support for additional screen resolutions, like QVGA and WVGA.
The other features of the SDK include telephony APIs that support CDMA, gesture APIs, text-to-speech engine, and the ability to integrate with Quick Search Box. The Android 1.6 SDK requires a new version of Android Development Tools. These new tools will enable developers to download updates and additional components.
Reportedly, over the coming weeks it will publish a series of posts that will help developers use the latest development technologies incorporated in the Android 1.6. These posts will cover topics like how to adapt applications to support different screen sizes, integrating with Quick Search Box, building gestures into apps and using the text-to-speech engine.
