Android EclairGoogle has officially announced SDK (software development kit) support for its latest & greatest version 2.0 of Android (dubbed Eclair). This enables current developers to create new application programming interfaces for features such as device synchronisation and Bluetooth.

Interestingly, Google confirmed that a number of new Android handsets will be released over the next months running on Android 1.5, 1.6, or 2.0. A minor update to v2.0 is also penciled in and will be the last update of the year. This is all very well, but us HTC Hero owners are still yet to see v1.6 (Donut), let alone worry about v2.0!

We’ve talked about what’s included in Android 2.0 before, however for those interested you can find a complete list of new features in Android 2.0 here and the official launch video after the jump.

I did read a blog entry saying that HTC will be skipping the 1.6 Donut update and going straight to 2.0, which is great news as I was a bit worried HTC would leave us hanging with 1.5 forever. This news of the Google navigation coming to andoid is the sign of a serious war starting between android and the iPhone OS which Android, given this latest news could seriously compete in the iPhone market.
