Android 3.2 SDK released to the world — start developing for 7-inch Tablets

Google have just released the Android 3.2 SDK to developers and is available for download via the SDK Manager right now. Android 3.2 is an incremental update from 3.1 which brings support for 7-inch Tablet and CPUs other than NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 — the Huawei MediaPad being a great example. Some of the highlights of the 3.2 release:

Optimizations for a wider range of tablets. A variety of refinements across the system ensure a great user experience on a wider range of tablet devices.

Compatibility zoom for fixed-sized apps. A new compatibility display mode gives users a new way to view these apps on larger devices. The mode provides a pixel-scaled alternative to the standard UI stretching, for apps that are not designed to run on larger screen sizes.

Media sync from SD card. On devices that support a removable SD card, users can now load media files directly from the SD card to apps that use them.

Extended screen support API. For developers who want more precise control over their UI across the range of Android-powered devices, the platform’s screen support API is extended with new resource qualifiers and manifest attributes, to also allow targeting screens by their dimensions.

If you’re a developer, or just looking for a more in-depth look into the Android 3.2 SDK, hit up the Android Developers site.
