Google Google has finally released Android, the opensource platform that will be used by the Open Handset Alliance. The platform is based in the Linux kernel, freetype, sqlite, webkit, a 2D/3D subsystem and other pieces, but the application framework is built in Java using a embedded-optimized VM called Dalvik. The SDK is available for Linux, Mac and Win and it includes an emulator. Video here. Update: The WebKit browser failed to render the desktop version of OSNews, so now we feed it our mobile one.

Hey, hasn't j2me received its "semi-official" death blow yet? I kind of remember reading something from Jonathan, that it has become superfluous due to the phones getting smarter and smarter. I still believe that the desktop JRE is overkill for a phone, though.
