Google announce Android SDK update including OTA 2.0.1 updates

by: James TromansDecember 4, 2009

Droid is Milestone in Europe

The Google Software-Development-Kit (SDK) has just been updated to the latest version 2.0.1 and the knock on effect of this includes the roll out of Android 2.0.1 to Android 2.0 phones. As you will probably know, the Motorola Droid is the only Android 2.0 phone at the moment. The update does not bring anything massive in terms of new functionality or jazzy features, however, it does fix a few minor bugs and some other Droid specific issues that Google were aware of. For example, the Droid’s camera autofocus is improved along with voice reception. The roll out should happen pretty soon so we’ll keep you posted.

Google releases Android 1.6 (Donut) SDK to developers

by: Michael OrylSeptember 15, 2009

Earlier this evening Google released the SDK for Android 1.6, what most people like to call the Donut release.  Core low level features that Donut brings to the platform include support for CDMA devices and differing screen resolutions – including QVGA (as on the HTC Tattoo) and high-res WVGA displays.

From a user perspective, the new gesture support, text to speech engine, and slick new Quick Search Box are probably of more interest.  The Quick Search Box, in particular, is quite cool in my opinion.  Results from the web start popping up on the screen even as you type in your search query.  For many tasks, the web browser never even gets launched, since the results can [...]

Google releases Android 1.5 SDK early look

by: Michael OrylApril 14, 2009

Yesterday Google released an early look at the Android OS 1.5 software developer kit, which includes developer support for all of the new Cupcake features that we are going to see in devices like the HTC Magic from Vodafone.

The new SDK also gives developers the ability to write programs for both the 1.1 release and the new 1.5 release, and going forward will continue to support multiple versions of the platform.

Developers can download the Android 1.5 SDK here.

New Yuhua phone designed to run Android

by: James TromansFebruary 25, 2009

Yuhua, previously known as Yuhuatel, are a Chinese mobile ODM (original design maker) that have recently demonstrated a hardware reference design for use with the Android OS. The company already offer a few phones that run Java and Linux, such as the CPhone. Indeed, the General Mobile DSTL1 was based on a design by Yuhua. Their current customers include Alcatel-TCL and Wigimo, the latter of which is owned by Race Telecom who specialise in mobile solutions for children and parents.

According to Linux Devices, the Xphone-SDK runs Android on a PXA-310 SoC clocked to 624MHz making it very similar to the DSTL1. Similarly, it seems to come with the same 3-inch Sharp touchscreen and [...]

How-to: Cupcake on the Android Emulator (with video)

by: Michael OrylJanuary 27, 2009

The guys at NullWire have put together a nice and neat way to get the Cupcake branch of Android running on your personal copy of the Android Emulator.  But before you can do that, you need to download and install the Android SDK.

[Step 1] Download the SDK from here and install it.  Once you have it installed, which is pretty painless, you can then [Step 2] download the Cupcake image files ZIP for the emulator.  Make a note of where you install the SDK (ie. “C:android-sdk”).

Home-grown G1 skin for the Android emulator

by: Darcy LaCouveeOctober 13, 2008

T-Mobile G1 emulator

Jeffrey Sharkey was bored.  Jeffrey Sharkey is also a developer that needed a change of scenery.  As such, he decided to peel the skin off of T-Mobile’s flash based G1 emulator and apply it to the Android smartphone emulator that comes as part of the SDK.

The result?  An updated look to the emulator that even lets you look at the apps running in landscape mode with the keyboard exposed.  Pretty cool.

Android 1.0 SDK, release 1 now available from Google

by: Darcy LaCouveeSeptember 24, 2008

Yesterday Dan Morrill over at the Android Developer Blog announced the availability of the first release of the Android 1.0 SDK.  This means that any applications developed using the new SDK’s APIs should remain usable on Android phones for quite some time with no fear of SDK feature creep breaking a developer’s code.

You can download the latest SDK from Google here.

Google posts Android timeline, 1.0 SDK still to come

by: Darcy LaCouveeAugust 18, 2008

It seems that Google has posted a timeline that outlines past and future milestones for the Android smartphone operating system.  There is nothing too earth shattering in the document, but they do mention that a pre-release of the 1.0 SDK will be available next month (September) with the real SDK to follow later in the year.  The posting also reiterates the fact that the first devices will be available in Q4 of this year.

Android SDK v0.9 released: new home screen, features added, features removed

by: Darcy LaCouveeAugust 18, 2008

It has been a busy couple of days on the Android front. Latest news is that a new version of the Android SDK has been made available. The new version of the SDK promises a new home screen and “many” UI tweaks as well as new task management.

Also new is the requirement for .APK files to be signed or else the OS will reject them at install time. Local, self-signed apps are acceptable, though, so this change shouldn’t prove to be too much of a burden for developers.

A video and more information are available after the break.
