Abstract of the lecture: The workshop attendees will become familiar with basic concepts of development for mobile phones with the Android operating system when developing a simple application.

Furthermore, we will talk about and demonstrate how to get applications ready for different mobile phones and how to verify “look” of application on more devices even if you do not have a drawer full of Nexuses, Milestones, Magics, G1s or Herons.
