Install And Run Android Emulator

Chances are you have no intention of tying yourself and your developer repertoire exclusively to the iPhone when building mobile apps in the future. Pete Freitag has a short post on how to install and get the Android Emulator up and running when you want to start getting familiar with the Android development tools. As strong as apps that run on the iPhone are currently in terms of popularity, learning the language of Android and getting familiar with developer tools related to it has got to be a smart idea for mobile developers. Very few apps that are successful on one platform will not exist sooner or later on the other one anyway so whether it’s your idea that you’d like to run on both IOS4 and Android, or a client’s idea, it seems like a no-brainer to get good at creating apps for both environments.
