Android SDK 2.1 Released

Developers can now go to town – or at least do the usual developer thing – with respect to the Nexus One.  Google’s released the SDK component for Android 2.1, which is the version of the mobile operating system found on the nifty new device.

Developers should be able to create a reasonable amount of interesting apps thanks to this development.  Animated wallpapers are on the menu, for starters, and on a less fanciful note, so is the ability to determine signal strength.

Anyway, the introduction of the Android 2.1 SDK is a sign that Google’s listening to developers, since its absence at the Nexus One launch generated a lot of complaints.

Let’s just hope developers do their part.  As developers start to churn out apps, this may increase the popularity of the Nexus One, which will in turn feed into app usage.  Or if developers procrastinate, the opposite could occur.  Early adopters’ feelings are sure to have an impact, either way.
