In case you haven't heard of it, the Android operating system for cell phones is being developed on Google Code. It's entirely open source/freeware, and anyone can develop apps for it. No phone actually uses this OS yet, but there is an SDK and some great emulators that you can use to develop your own apps and games for when the time comes. The SDK is Java-based (but it's a lot different than regular Java). Anyways, I was wondering if anyone here had an opinion on this OS, or if anyone here is going to create any apps/games for it.

The main trouble to work on "embedded" or portable devices is the hardware himself and their limiting. So, working only with a emulator is pretty risky, may be your application done on the emulator can run fine and find clueless why the same application will refuse to work on a real device. In fact, this happens on j2me, symbian and windowsce. For example, you must avoid the use of floating point operator (division for example) on many devices cause they can't support it or they support but with a performance impact.
