Yesterday Google announced and released the Android Scripting Environment - Python, Lua, and BeanShell as a giant blob for Android. Looks like I can finally start using Python on the box - written some simple bits of test code with it already. Cool feature: since python talks to java/dex via an Android Proxy wrapper, using JSONRPC, you can start ASE and then portforward the proxy to a connected system, so you can run python code that manipulates the phone from an interpreter on your desktop...

Very much an early release, lots of stuff missing but what's there works!
