This means that it will come with a lot of new features and technologies that were previously unavailable. For one, CDMA will be supported now. Also, additional screen sizes will make use of some apps a lot more user friendly. And speaking of apps, you will now be able to deploy them on even more devices and networks then you could before, all as a result of the 1.6 download.

What will the Android 1.6 SDK be needing though? Does it come without the need for new software or hardware? Well, not entirely. For one, the Android 1.6 will require a newer version of ADT (android development tools) before you can use it.
