Google releases Android 2.1 SDK after complaints

Software development kit is for the version of its mobile operating system that powers the Nexus One smartphone.

Google has released the software development kit for Android 2.1, the version of its mobile operating system that powers the Nexus One smartphone.

When the Nexus One was launched a week ago, developers complained that they had not been given the SDK, making it impossible for them to test their applications for compatibility with the new OS version. The handset is the first to use Android 2.1.

Google introduced the software development kit on Monday, describing the new OS version as a "minor platform release."
