Google releases Nexus One SDK

Now, if they can just sort out the rest of it

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Android variant found on Google's Nexus One handset now has an SDK, answering one of the criticisms aimed at the search giant's foray into hardware.

The Android 2.1 SDK includes APIs for creating animated wallpapers, as well as some additional telephony functions and a couple of improvements to interaction with the WebKit browser, all of which are used by Google's own Nexus One applications and are now available to other developers too.

The delayed SDK is only one thing that's got aspiring Nexus-One owners riled. The handset is still having problems deciding when to use a 3G network and when to drop down to the 2G alternative, and Google's level of support is frustrating many.

But at least developers can now create applications making use of features exclusive to the Nexus One - applications that won't run on lesser Android handsets from Motorola, Samsung and everyone else who signed up to Google's promise of a level playing field. ®
