Google Today, Google has released the software development kit for Android 2.0, the company's mobile operating system. The SDK gives away all the new features, and there's indeed quite a lot in this one. The biggest new feature is multitouch support, but there's a whole lot more.

really can't wait to see this on my galaxy i7500... this update is going to bring much needed tweaks to android. I find the phone quite usable as is, but bluetooth file transfer and multiple accounts are quite important for me, and I think exchange support is quite high on some other people's lists.

also, I'm quite thrilled that they've improved the keyboard. Maybe that's something which could be backported to 1.5 phones already... (hope)

If there's little or no increase in overhead, then i really can't see why v2.0 wont be backported

I'm not really talking about whether 'older' phones will get the 2.0 update (I would be very angry if they wouldn't, to say the truth). However, I hope someone will soon find out how to get the new keyboard .apk to work on our current 1.5 phones... preferably a long time before 2.0 firmwares are released (which probably won't be until next spring)
