Introduction

The Open Handset Alliance (1) released the Google Android SDK on November 12th, 2007, having announced it about a week before. The impact was unbelievable, almost every IT/programming-related newspage dumped a news-post about the SDK release - the Google Groups (2) was overwhelmed with over 2000 Messages within the first two Days.

The idea of the Android Platform was and still is amazing and is of course attracting more and more programmers every day. Especially the open architecture based on Intents and the possibility to replace even the Home-application grant a really large amount of flexibility to the whole platform.
