Sony Ericsson baking Donut Android phones

Firm to launch Android 2.0 OS handsets

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sony Ericsson has a sweet treat in store for Android fans – confirmation that it'll launch several Android phones based on the Google OS’ Donut edition.

The firm first confirmed plans to launch an Android-based phone back in December, but has kept relatively quiet on the subject until now.

However, Peter Ang, head of Marketing at Sony Ericsson Asia Pacific, has now said that the firm's preparing to launch Google phones running on Android 2.0 – aka Donut, DigiTimes reports.

Android 1.5 – aka Cupcake - was released late last month. But little’s yet known about the Donut update’s features.

However, Ang reportedly said that the Donut will feature greater multimedia support than Cupcake – suggesting that SE’s Android 2.0 phones will be strong contenders in the entertainment category.

Since Google’s yet to confirm when Android’s Donut update will be available and the fact that Cupcake is only a few weeks old, it could be some time before Donut-based SE Android phones hit the market. ®
