Google shows the Android Interface

Google released the SDK for the Android operating system, which was announced in the beginning of the month instead of the gPhone (Google Phone). This Linux-based OS will be integrated into various phones, and the released video previews of the OS show it working both with QWERTY-equipped phone with landscape display (similar to the Motorola Q) and with one with large touch screen.

The previews show applications like messenger, contacts, integrated Google Maps, Internet browser that greatly resembles the one of the S60 smartphones and even Quake, demonstrating the OS support for 3D. As the OS is open-source based, Google is supporting the development of 3rd party applications and will reward the best (before March) with total of $10 million.

Among the partners of the Android OS are HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung.
