"All four of the largest carriers in the United States have now
agreed to offer Android phones. When the first Android handset, the
G1 from HTC, was introduced last fall, only T-Mobile offered it.
Now, Verizon, the largest carrier, is putting a huge promotional
push behind the Droid from Motorola, set to be introduced this
week. Even AT&T, the home of the iPhone, recently said it would
join the Android party next year.
"Google is rapidly introducing updates to Android, each named
after a bakery sweet. Version 1.5 (cupcake) came out in April,
version 1.6 (donut) appeared in September. Version 2.0
(éclair) is expected to appear on the Droid."
