    The rest of the story I posted about above.


    Who knew that when Joe Hewitt of Facebook made a comment to the extent that developing for Android is “horrendous” it would turn into one of the biggest debates in the Android blogosphere. Except he didn’t actually quite say that, or so he has gone on to explain in a recent tweet clearing up that he meant the tools for developing for Android (specifically Eclipse, a Java development environment not exclusive to Android) are horrendous and that the OS is merely visually displeasing to him. But don’t worry too much, as he goes on to state, “on technical merits Android is great.”
    We’re sure the debate will rage on, but it’s only fair to give the man a chance to defend himself. Carry on.

    Don't see anything in a newer phone that gives me a temptation to leave my Nexus One!

    I am a developer too and I have to agree that the Android development tools and development environment is lacking and is way behind that of iOS SDK and Windows Phone SDK. It's easy to say that the reason for this is the fact that Android is open source as well as Eclipse (Android's main development environment). Not to mention the user controls available on Android (buttons, dropdownlists, textboxes, etc) all feel like developer grade & prematurely designed which doesn't excite many mobile app developers and designers like myself.

    I am really looking forward to the release of Gingerbread as Google mentioned that its focal point in that build is improving the user interface. Maybe then we will see better tools available for developers.
