The new Android SDK from Google is all set to make new standards for mobile application development. Android SDK in Google’s own words is,
A software stack for mobile devices including an operating system, middleware and key applications. Developers can create applications for the platform using the Android SDK. Applications are written using the Java programming language and run on Dalvik, a custom virtual machine designed for embedded use which runs on top of a Linux kernel.
Apart from the platform, the UI looks promising. It can be even slated to compete with the UI of Apple iPhone. The features are worth drooling over. Check this video presentation made by Sergey Brin and his associate, Steve Horowitz.
I found the Chat feature pretty interesting. It would be a great feature if the conversation sent in the form of SMS could be converted into a chat. It would be simple and fun to use. Some features shown in the video are breath taking. Check out for the Globe Spinner designed with OpenGL and the 3D panorama view. Sergey has mentioned about the Android SDK developer challenge which is currently gaining up on popularity.
Google has set a massive amount of 10 million dollars to present the creator of the best mobile application on the Android platform. Sounds like we would have more crazy stuff coming to our phones soon. Move over to the Android Information Base to find out more.
