Google Releases the Android 2.1 SDK Android 2.1, Release 1 Becomes Available

Right after taking the wraps off their Nexus One smartphone, Google has
finally released the Android 2.1 SDK. Pleasing those developers who
complained against not having the software development kits for the
latest version of the mobile operation system, the new Android 2.1 SDK
does not add significant user features, as 2.1 is called a minor
platform release over Andr
oid 2.0.
The new Android 2.1 SDK is supposedly faster. It adds support for voice
recognition, active dynamic wallpaper development (make your own live
wallpaper — finally), brings an improved signal strength visual
output, a new launcher and a visually enhanced 3D-enabled gallery app.
On top of that, there are some changes regarding the WebKit rendering
engine, which now allows for geolocation support.
No word if any of these will make your battery run out in a matter of
minutes on your Motorola Droid or the whole bunch of HTC smartphones
ready to embrace Android 2.1, but I guess we'll get to find out soon enough.
Meanwhile, the new Android 2.1 component can be downloaded through the
SDK Manager.
