Donut features displayed at Google I/O
While many G1 owners are still awaiting their taste of the Cupcake upgrade, Google took the opportunity to show off the Android 2.0 OS known as Donut at the Android developers conference. During the keynote speech, features such as a universal search was demonstrated. Android Search, as the program is called, allows you to search online and on the phone's contacts, music, calendars and apps. A text to speech API allows developers to work Google Voice Search type features into the apps they are working on; there is also a function that uses handwriting gestures to find specific points in a list. Don't know about you, but after the demo, we definitely feel a hankering for Donuts coming on.
