Google just to provide developers the SDK of Android 3.0 Preview. A preview of some of the new features that will bring the final version of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).
The main novelty of Android 3.0 is that he adapts the interface for tablets, but for now there are no mobile interface, so surely Google has dubbed as Android 3.0 Preview until you break the SDK with both interfaces.
With this version of the SDK, it is expected that many applications start to adapt their interfaces to larger screens and thus arrive on time for the premiere of the first tablet with Android 3.0, which will be released during the first quarter.
The main novelties of this SDK are:
- Interface adapted to big screens: default WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, new components, new views, widgets and improved notifications, drag and drop, and other features to take advantage of the larger screens.
- New 2D/3D animations: new framework for squeezing the Android graphics and create great effects, be able to use acceleration hardware.
- Multi-core processors support: Android 3.0 is optimized for new processor multi-core and thus improve the experience.
- Multimedia improvements: HTTP Live Sreaming, DRM protection and transfer of files via protocols MTP/PTP support.
- New types of connectivity: new APIS for Bluetooth A2DP and HSP with streaming audio
- Improvements for companies: new administrative policies with storage encryption, expiration of password and improvements to manage business more effectively devices.
The SDK requires a good team to go somewhat fluid, with what if you will not improperly or simply do not know use the Android SDK I leave you with a video that have prepared the guys at Engadget showing updates to Honeycomb.
It is rumored that Google IO 2011 will present the final version of Android 3.0, with all the new features and the interface adapted for mobile. We hope that note over the hand of Matias Duarte and improve the mobile interface seen on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
