Google has announced a new way of writing Android applications. apparently you will no longer need to have a desktop or laptop for you to write android apps. The Android Scripting Environment (ASE) will make Android development easier and more accessible for a number of developers who don’t want to build a full application.
This technology allows developers to build apps directly from their android powered phones. Developers will be able to tap into the inbuilt android API’s. You can find more information about this on http://code.google.com/p/android-scripting
