Google's Android continues to generate headlines for rapid growth in the smartphone market. MonoTouch already supports one of the industry's most popular smartphones, the Apple iPhone. Now we're working on support for Android with a beta product named MonoDroid.
MonoDroid is a software development kit that will enable developers to create Android applications utilizing code and libraries written for the Microsoft .NET development framework and easier-to-use programming languages such as C#. MonoDroid will run on any system that runs the Android SDK. It will integrate with MonoDevelop on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. Additionally, on Windows it will integrate to Visual Studio (through Mono Tools for Visual Studio).
Novell is offering a beta version of MonoDroid in limited release now. This will enable users to test MonoDroid and provide feedback on the product.
