Android SDK on the Wild!

| Comments


Mark this day on your calendar! Google finally launched the Android SDK. I was impressed with the feature set: Linux Kernel 2.6, FreeType, SQLite, OpenGL, WebKit and a optimized Java byte code interpreter!! Opensource geeks, rejoice! :-)

There is an excellent video where the API is explained in good details. Maybe my Internet connectivity is having problems, but I had a hard time just to download the movie (I didn’t even try to watch it in real time).

I’m curious about the modifications made by Google to the standard Linux Kernel, for instance, how do they optimize it for mobile (and possible real time) usage. At the same time, Google announced big quantities of money for the best applications for the Android! Kudos for Google! Can’t wait for a phone with Android…
