A Preview SDK for Android 3.0 Honeycomb has been released yesterday and it gives the developers a sneak preview at all the new features they can find in the final version when it is released. This SDK utilizes all the new features of the Honeycomb UI to lets developers build rich applications for Tablet devices using these latest Honeycomb UI elements.
We just noticed an update on the Android Developers Blog by their Android SDK Tech Lead, Xavier Ducrohet, announcing the release of Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK. This update is not a different SDK in itself but rather adds newer packages to the existing SDK.
These newly available packages include the Android Honeycomb SDK Platform Preview as well as samples and documentation for this preview. In addition to the newly available packages, Android SDK Tools have also been updated to revision 9 while the Platform tools have been updated to revision 2 to add support for the Honeycomb-specific features.
You can download these latest packages by launching Android SDK Manager on your computer. Most likely, it will automatically notify you of the availability of the new and updated packages, offering you to install them. In case it doesn’t, you can manually update the packages by going to the ‘Available packages’ section and installing them manually from there. In case you don’t already have the SDK installed, you can check out our guide on what is ADB and how to install it.
