If you are remotely interested in developing apps for Google’s Android TV, then you will be pleased to hear that the first batch of dev kits for Google’s Android TV has already begun to arrive at the homes of developers. It was right after the announcement of Android TV over at Google I/O that developers could apply to have a shot at a preview console. This preview console will give developers a chance to design their respective applications, and now those lucky selected developers have begun to receive their units that comprises of an ADT-1 reference Android TV console in addition to a game controller.
The whole idea of a dev preview device makes plenty of sense, where it also works in Google’s favor since developers are able to tune in to Android TV. Not only that, customers who expect a slew of apps and games will also be able to enjoy them upon the purchase of the Android TV. Do take note that for the masses, Android TV will only be made available until later this fall, and Google wants to make sure that early adopters will not end up with a piece of hardware that has barely any software worth running on it.
