Create great apps.
The Android OS and platform was established in 2007 by Google and the OHA (Open Handset Alliance). HTC is a founding member of the OHA. HTC released the world’s first Android phone, the HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) in 2008 and has since released numerous Android devices.
The HTC Developer Center will provide additional Android tutorials and resources such as API documentation and sample code to supplement http://d.android.com and provide support for HTC specific feature devices with the HTC OpenSense SDK.
- Download the Java Runtime Environment for your OS platform from http://java.com
- Download the Android SDK from http://d.android.com
- Use an IDE for development (highly recommended), specifically Eclipse as the Android SDK provides support for Eclipse (but other IDEs can be used as well). http://eclipse.org
See the Developer Center for Android quick guides for reviewing the essentials for beginners and advanced developers alike. See external resources for additional links to external resources.
