Google is offering developers an early-look release at Android 1.5 SDK. Version 1.5 introduces APIs for features such as
- Soft keyboards
- Home screen widgets
- Live folders
- Speech recognition
Additionally, the new version will allow the installment of Android SDK add-ons. The early look version has an add-on for the Google APIs that provides support for the Google Maps API.
The final release of the Android 1.5 SDK will occur around the end of this month. Future versions, including 1.5, will include multiple versions of the Android Platform. The early-look provides versions 1.1 and 1.5 of the platform. This will enable developers to target various platforms from a single installation.
Google first debuted Android in November of 2007.
