Android 2.0 OS SDK Now Available
Google released the Android 2.0 Operating System SDK to developers early this morning which includes a handful of new API’s, Bluetooth updates, Searchable SMS and Exchange support, new controls for the build in camera, improved multitouch keyboard, new browser with an easier UI (user interface) and support for HTML5, and much more.
Here’s a blurb from their site as well as an official Android 2.0 Video below.
Android 2.0 brings new developer APIs for sync, Bluetooth, and a few other areas. Using the new sync, account manager and contacts APIs, you can write applications to enable users to sync their devices to various contact sources. You can also give users a faster way to communicate with others by embedding Quick Contact within your application. With the new Bluetooth API, you can now easily add peer-to-peer connectivity or gaming to your applications. To get a more complete list of the new capabilities you can add to your applications, please go to the Android 2.0 highlights page.
Current developers can use the SDK Manager to add Android 2.0 support to their SDK as well as update their SDK Tools to revision 3. New developers can download the Android SDK from the download site. After the download, Android platforms must be added using the SDK Manager
