I mentioned on Saturday that Motorola has sold only 440K of the Xoom Android tablet. As I'm sure you remember, one of the reasons that I feel Android tablets are selling way less than the iPad is the fact that the just aren't a large number of apps available for the Android tablet market.
I think the OS for both Apple & Android perform well, but the real difference for Apple is the huge number of quality apps that Apple has had, pretty much since the day the iPad launched. I mean, at last count the Android App Store featured just under 300 apps that were formatted for Honeycomb, which is the Android OS version for tablets. I'm not sure how many iPad specific apps that Apple has in their app store, but I'd wager it's easily more than 75,000.
Well, to help with that problem, Google is now hosting workshops that are designed to help developers bring apps to the Android platform. These workshops are being called ADLs (Android Developer Labs). The whole point is to teach coders ways to get their apps up and running on the tablet interface. So Google is hoping to spur development by helping the coders better cope with the Google environment.
Here is the info on how to become involved with one of the ADLs:
