Android 4.0 SDK now available

Features, ahoy! Google announced a slew of new features today for the Android platform, which you can read about in depth here. The search (and mobile) giant has pleased developers already.

Developers can get their hands on the mouth watering treats already, over on the Android developers website. The tools can be obtained from the page here

The platform page is jam-packed with highlights, from new facial recognition features to mobile data control, high resolution pictures, sharing enhancements and more. Google took their time with this update to the platform, and has delivered accordingly. The changes for developers are outlined on this page.

It appears that Google really did get their inspiration from Tron: Legacy, with the company uploading a video that showcases the new platform, complete with Android figurines riding light cycles. Cute.

Update​: It appears the video has since been removed.
