Android 2.0 : The Eclair Release

With Verizon’s Droid all slated for a release next month, it will be releases with the latest Android Release, “Eclair“.

Going with their tradition of  naming their major Release after pastries, Android 2.0 seems to be feature filled.

Some of the interesting features I feel are as follows :

  • Microsoft Exchange support
  • Digital Zoom and In-build Flash support in the Camera
  • Support for HTML5 in the browser
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Several new developer APIs.

You read more about the 2.0 SDK and how to sync it with your current SDK here.

A complete  list of features is also present here.
