Android 3.0 Honeycomb preview SDK Released

Google today released a preview version of the Android 3.0 “Honeycomb” Software Developer Kit to allow developers to start testing their apps on tablets.

The SDK includes APIs that aren’t final yet, but they do help developers familiarize themselves with the new UI framework for larger displays including support for Honeycomb widgets, themes, notifications, and drag and drop functionality that will be included in Android 3.0.

Here’s a snippet of the highlights from the official blog post.

The Apps built with the Android 3.0 Platform Preview cannot be published on the Android Market. A final SDK will be released “in the weeks ahead,” Google said.
