Qualcomm announces Android SDK for Snapdragon-powered devices

June 26, 2012

Qualcomm is currently the mobile chip leader in the market thanks to many factors, like the fact that they produce chips from devices that are at the low-end and made for volume, and up to the high-end for $700 devices. What really started making their chips popular was the introduction of the Nexus One with their 1 Ghz Snapdragon CPU, which was a first at the time. The Snapdragon S4 chip has also overwhelmed Qualcomm with demand until the end of the year, thanks to its high performance, battery efficiency, and integration with a LTE modem.

But there is one area where Snapdragon chips have been consistently behind the others, and that’s GPU performance. Even when [...]

The update to HTC’s OpenSense SDK is now available for download

June 14, 2012

One of the ingredients in the Android Fragmentation soup is the extra UIs that companies like Samsung and HTC add on top of the standard Android interface. These extras help differentiate one company’s phone over another. The problem is that for app developers to make use of these extras they need access to a software development kit which exposes the relevant APIs.

HTC’s SDK is called the “OpenSense SDK” and according to the phone maker, it “enables deeper integration into the HTC Sense experience.” To do this in the HTC OpenSense SDK, which is available as an Android SDK add-on through the Android SDK manager, provides access to the HTC [...]

Android Gingerbread software development kit coming next week?

October 13, 2010

Google Android

Android Police are supporting a rumor that is quite exciting. Apparently the Gingerbread SDK will be released soon, and with it a host of information about what this latest release of Android is going to do.

The application inferface will reveal a lot of the new functionality afforded by this iteration of the OS, and furthermore we should have access to a new emulator showing us what the basic Gingerbroad version of Android will look like. It still is not 100% clear as to whether this will be Android 2.5 or 3.0, so again, another minor point could be resolved with this release of the updated SDK.

Google rolls out the Android 2.1 SDK

January 12, 2010

One week after the launch of the Nexus One, Google has released the Android 2.1 SDK to developers.
