A lot of updations were seen in the version 1.5 which is also called the cupcake. It is also from this version that android started using dessert names for its versions. The android media playback improved immensely and copy and paste made its first appearance in the browser. The android phone was able to pull Google account pictures into the contact list. The next version of android was version 1.6, also called as doughnut. This version introduced the free turn navigation map which is now the USP of Android phones.
The versions 2.0 and 2.1 both lived under the name éclair which is a bit strange, given the names of dessert names for other versions. Éclair had a much improved keyboard and auto- correct. It also brought in the much needed improvements of the camera. HTML5 was added to the browser.
Version 2.2 Froyo (Frozen Yoghurt) brought with it the most improvements up to that point. It brought in Adobe flash support and the addition of USB and wireless tethering. Wireless tethering allowed Froyo users to turn their phones into a wireless hotspot.
