Bleary-eyed first impressions off the Android development kit (ADK)

  • I wouldn't even be doing this if the iPhone SDK wasn't Mac-only.
  • Installing the ADK necessitated a good deal of yak shaving to get the latest version of Linux, due to library conflicts.
  • All those people complaining about the slow emulator - they're right. But try launching it on an eeePC 901 and weep... it is glacial :-)
  • The Eclipse tools were really nice and easy to set up.
  • Once everything is up and running, it looks real easy to develop with.
  • My next step is to try testing C2DM.
  • Every question I've had so far has been answered by Googling and finding a Stack Overflow page.
