As promised last week, the Open Handset Alliance today released the new Android Mobile Platform SDK, which can run on any machines using Windows XP, Windows Vista, Ubuntu Linux or other modern distros, Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.

The Open Handset Alliance is also giving away $10 million to developers who start building application on the platform. It's basically a contest to encourage people to start making apps. The 50 most promising entries will each receive $25,000. Of the 50 people selected, ten will have the chance to win $275,000 awards and another ten $100,000 awards. For more info on that visit the Android Developer Challenge page.
