> Software For Mobile Devices
Google Android is now a mature (in the context of mobile devices) operating system that can be found
on a large number of mobile devices. Software development is primarily in 'Android Java' via a plugin
to an Eclipse editor running on a windows desktop PC, but additional functionality can be provided by
public domain third party libraries.
Android's tight integration with GPS and mapping services make it an ideal choice for location-based
applications, and it is an efficient client for consuming web services.
