Google released the full Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK which now offers developers a finalized API to work with to develop apps for the new Android tablets that are about to hit the market with the API’s being deemed final and able to withstand new apps that will target the fresh platform…….

Google made its full Android 3.0 software development kit (SDK) available to developers, more than three weeks after shipping a rough preview version to give developers a taste of the Honeycomb build.The APIs are final which means developers can write apps for the platform and publish them to Google’s Android Market store for free or sale.Unlike previous iterations of Android developed for powering smartphones, the Honeycomb build is specifically for helping developers write apps for the larger screen size form factor of tablets.

Android SDK Tech Lead Xavier Ducrohet said there have been several improvements to the SDK since its initial run-through.These include UI Builder improvements in the ADT Plugin, a new app palette with categories and rendering previews; more accurate rendering of layouts; selection-sensitive action bars and zoom improvements, among other perks.This is because Google intends the platform which features a 3D graphics rendering engine and new application tools called fragments  to define the market for Android tablets to come.Google Android engineer Mike Cleron offered a sneak peek of these capabilities on the forthcoming Android 3.0-based Motorola Xoom tablet Jan. 6 at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show.
