It is nice to have an actual device to test and try things, especially when your Lion is bitten by the infamous 19099 bug. Mine is. So I was very happy to plug in my new Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, configure the device for development, start some Honeycomb samples from Google, and run them on ...
Surprise. The tablet was not visible in the Eclipse Run and Debug dialogs.

I recently visited a workshop that covered a certain library for Android development. To the surprise of anybody, the vast majority of the participants were highly interested in Android but hat neither written a line of Android code before nor had they any of the development tools installed.

Working with the USB APIs with Android essentially requires three choices:
Mode: Do you want to use USB accessory mode or USB host mode? See http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/usb/index.html.
Platform: Do you want to target Android 3.1 (API level 12) and higher or Android 2.3.4 (API level 10)?
API: Do you want to include the Google add-on library (see http://code.google.com/android/add-ons/google-apis/index.html) or work with the framework API?
