SDKs for Android L preview and Android Wear go live, factory images can’t be far behind


Android Developers

As promised, Google has officially made both the Android L preview and Android Wear SDKs available to developers. The necessary files are now available via the Android SDK Manger, and should give developers all the tools they need to start building apps for Android L and Android Wear.

Keep in mind that for us normal folk, there isn’t much here. We anticipate the Android L preview factory images will be released very soon for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (WiFi), so hang tight. Ah, feels like Christmas morning, doesn’t it?

UPDATE: Annnnnnnd… the images are live!
