Motorola launches MOTODEV studio for Android developers July 26, 2009

Motorola really wants you to develop for Android handsets. More specifically, they really want you to develop for Motorola-made Android handsets. That’s why they’ve launched MOTODEV, an Android development resource for crackin’ out apps purposed for Motorola handsets.

It’s a two-part initiative, one seemingly a bit more exclusive than the other. If you can get into Motorola’s “App Accelerator Program”, they’ll set you up with early access to the tools and specs, pre-release handsets (for testing purposes), direct private access to Motorola’s Android crew, and some level of assistance in marketing your app. You’ll presumably have to prove you’re up to snuff – and, unless Moto is feelin’ lucky, sign an NDA.

The other, more accessible half of the program is the release of MOTODEV Studio, a development environment specifically tuned for development on Moto Android handsets.

Of course, this is all a bit null until Motorola actually releases an Android handset – but headstarts are always welcome. Plus, it gave Motorola a reason to draw a bunch of sweet-ass Android graphics like the ones above, not to mention this next one:
