Android 3.0 Honeycomb preview SDK released

Today Google uploaded a preview od upcoming Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK, so that developers can test their apps in new enviroment. You can get it through the Android SDK Manager, together with few other updates.

On the we can read, that:

The Preview SDK includes:
  • An early Android 3.0 system image for use in the Android emulator
  • An Android 3.0 library with non-final APIs
  • A new WXGA emulator skin for an extra large Android Virtual Device
  • New documentation for Android 3.0, including a complete API reference, new developer guides, and an API differences report between Android 3.0 and 2.3.
Be aware that:
  • The APIs in the Preview SDK are not final. Some APIs may change in behavior or availability when the final SDK is made available.
  • You cannot publish an application that's built against the preview SDK—you can only run an application built against the Preview SDK on the Android emulator.
  • The documentation on does not include the Android 3.0 documentation—to read the API reference and developer guides for Android 3.0, you must install the Android 3.0 preview documentation from the AVD and SDK Manager.

I tried to download it, but I gues everyone tries to do this at the moment, so the download speed wasn't the greatest for me...
