Strong opinions, weakly held

The Android SDK is up

Google’s SDK for the Android mobile platform is now available for download. I’m eager to read what people have to say once they start digging in.

Update: I’ve installed the Eclipse plugin and I’m downloading the SDK (which is required in order to play with the Eclipse plugin). I’m a bit surprised that the Android SDK is Java, but I’m not sure why. I had a pretty good idea that would be the case when Bob Lee twittered that he’s on the Android team. He’s the creator of Google’s Guice dependency injection framework.

It looks like there’s a big problem with the combination of OS X, Eclipse, and the Android Eclipse plugin. That’ll put a crimp in my exploration of Android.


  1. I think the $10 million Google is promising to give away (http://code.google.com/android/adc.html) to the best apps that come out of this pre-hardware period is going to lead to an amazingly strong software lineup once the phones actually start coming out.

  2. Thank &diety; for VMWare. I just happened to set up a new Gutsy image yesterday, so I downloaded the Sun JDK, Eclipse, Android bits, and got to play a bit.

  3. I’m really looking forward to checking it out.
