Android logo Last 2/3 months I used a bit of my free time studying Android the so called "Google OS", that is the result of the Open Handset Alliance.

In this relatively short amount of time I had the possibility to collect information from the official sources, as well as from very interesting and active forums (like this one and this one). I had also the possibility to meet other experts during the Android Code Day event (here a summary what we did there). It was a very good place to ask important business related questions: I should say that the Google Developer Advocate Jason Chen was very keen to answer my tricky questions ;-) .

Spending other words on this here is quite pointless: half of the web speaks about it (while the other half speaks about iPhone ;) ). But I would like to share part of the result of this study:

  • A Presentation: "Into the Android" [PDF | HTML+Flash]
  • <li>Video #1: MWC - Android running on different ARM-based devices [<a href="http://downloads.detronizator.org/intotheandroid/MWC - Android running on different ARM-based devices.mp4">mp4</a>]</li>
    
    <li>Video #2: MWC - Android running on E2831 [<a href="http://downloads.detronizator.org/intotheandroid/MWC - Android running on E2831.mp4">mp4</a>]</li>
    
    <li>Source code of the Application I developed for study (actually, is just the <a href="http://code.google.com/android/intro/tutorial.html">Tutorial</a> that comes with the <a href="http://code.google.com/android/download.html">SDK</a> with much more internal documentation ;) ): <a href="http://downloads.detronizator.org/intotheandroid/VSNotepad.tar.gz">VSNotepad.tar.gz</a>.</li>
    

The presentation explains different details of the Development process using the code of this application as an example.

The video are also on Youtube and embedded here after the jump. <!--more-->
