How many of you Android users out there have spent the last few months sitting huddled in your nerd caves, drooling in anticipation for the Donut to finally hit? Wow, really? That many? Well then you'll all be glad to know that Donut will be with us all very shortly. The SDK (developer version) of Android 1.6 was sent out today.

When the developer copy comes out, it's only a matter of time before the update will be ready for users. Donut is expected to launch in full "as early as October". A video has been released by the Android team to showcase some of Donut's new features, which include a text-to-speech API capable of translations, a new app market, gesture based APIs, and CDMA network capability.

That sounds pretty great to me. There's been no word yet as to whether or not the G1 will or will not be capable of handling this update. Memory restrictions could block the full version of both updates from ever hitting the G1. I suppose we'll know for sure in October.
