Google's Android is here

If you are into mobile device development and havn't heard about Android yet, you should go check it out now. In short, Android is Google's (and partners) new platform for mobile devices. It consists of a linux operating system and an SDK that sits on top of the Java programming language and a custom Java VM named DALVIK, which is specifically designed for embedded and mobile devices. I am currently soaking up the Android documentation and API and I am eager to build my first Android application.

This is a very exciting moment for all Java and Google enthusiasts and a milestone in the history of mobile devices. Unfortunately the first Android devices will not come before late 2008, and even later in Europe, but this is not reducing my excitement.
