The latest Android SDK that released by Google is now support for emulator function. But it seems that the giant search company’s engineering team think that it is not good enough. They decided to take it to the next level, alongside with the release of Android 4.0.4. Google’s team is finally manage to come out with an emulator that able to run ARM-based software in a desktop computer that powered by x86 or x64 processor. According to Android Development Team, this new emulator will work more efficient than the similar function that packed on the Android SDK. What’s that suppose to mean? Well, you’ll get yourself a new and faster Android Emulator folks!
Previously, lot of developers complaints that the Android Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich emulator on Android SDK package is running very slow, even on a high-end desktop computer. It is tend to crash and lag while user trying to make it do simple task. The Android Developer Team hope that with this new release, user should be able to run the emulator smoothly without anymore crash or freeze issue. They’re also hope that owner of older computer will be able to take advantage from this program.
The developer team also added the new function that allow user to tether their android device to the computer and use it as the second display and take advantage from the available sensors. This is a nice addition to the previously suppored camera-tethering function. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to download the emulator separately. You must grab the whole Android SDK package to take advantage from this new release.
