Google updating Android dev kit

Google Delays Android SDK

Google today said it would upgrade the developer kit for its Android mobile OS, providing a significant upgrade to the Linux-based software based on feedback from programmers. The company does not say exactly what its enhancements will include but notes that both the user interface and the programming interface itself will receive upgrades. The delay is enough to justify pushing back the deadline for the Developers Challenge until April 14th, Google says, though the change will not force any software developers to migrate to the new code in the same timeframe.

"We're looking forward to seeing some great apps, especially after we've had a chance to incorporate some of your feedback into the Android platform," says Google's Developer Advocate Quang Nguyen.

The change is believed to be in response to numerous bug complaints from developers, who in the early stages of development criticized Google for supplying too little documentation and requiring excessive steps to accomplish simple user interface goals.
