You’re probably wondering whether you’re reading the title right and for 500 of you, you are! Today we put out a press release offering up some incredibly cool news about Unity and our coming support for Android powered devices. Not only are we now actually pre-selling Unity Android Pro licenses, but we’re going to give a Google Nexus One to the first 500 people to pre-order one! I hope you’re excited about this kind of news (I wish I was eligible!) and so you can start learning more about this offer by reading the full press release:

Unity Technologies Opens Pre-Order of Unity Pro for Android With Sweet Deal

Then stop by our website for even more information, like the terms and conditions of the offer:

And then you’ll hopefully stop by our online store and try to be among the first 500 people in order to get your free Google Nexus One:

As always folks, it’s Unity for the win!

Update as of June 29, 2010
I’m back to provide some updated information on the phones being offered as part of this program.  The first 500 developers that buy Unity Android Pro will receive an unlocked Google Nexus One with Android 2.1 or later installed. The phones will not come with any service plan, those that receive a phone will need to secure a service plan on their own (the phones will be compatible with any GSM carrier worldwide). Please keep in mind that these devices are 3G compatible with all GSM carriers outside of the USA, but within the USA they are 3G compatible only on the T-Mobile network, users on the AT&T network will have EDGE service instead.

bbuuuttt…… (kid voice to teacher)

isn’t android SDK free????????? what difference is with using unity pro to «export» to iphone, and to export to android?

[…] getting back loyal Android developers, happy vocal users, business partners, etc. Just remember the Unity giveaway of the 500 Nexuses. Be sure, all Unity Android Pro early adopters got a device duty free. And they’re happily […]

Can’t wait to get my hands on this… there just isn’t enough hours in the day!

@Tom, how long do you expect the phones to take to ship? I’m going on holiday v soon for a month & I dont want it to be sent back to you guys cause i’m away, that really wouldn’t be cool…

[…] in case you missed it, Unity gives away a half thousand of Google Nexus devices for Unity Android users to develop with. This entry was posted in Technologies, Unity and tagged […]

I don’t believe it!
That is too much, out of the blue just like that…
I really love this platform.

Vimeo has some features YouTube lacks, such as an easy way of linking videos together to create a series. YouTube videos tend to be much more standalone. (Vimeo has also historically supported higher quality video streaming, though YouTube is catching up there.) Vimeo is thus quite popular with other developers as a way of hosting tutorials.

And, of course, it means UT don’t have to worry about hosting large video streams themselves.

But it does give an odd impression when a company offering its own video-capable web-browser plugin, and which supports Apple and Google platforms, is using a completely different provider for this stuff. I hope Unity 3’s release will also see UT using it more and more on their own website. A video / tutorial player built in Unity should be pretty bloody impressive.

Very nice job !

One question : why using Vimeo ? Why not YouTube (readable on iPhone/iPad)?

This is great!

Seriously considering an order, though it will divert funds from the dev computer I am building…

Can we please get a comparison of the Android V Android Pro licenses, or are the limitations the same as on the iPhone platform?

Which version of Nexus One?

Compatible with 3G on T-Mobile (U.S.)
Supports three 3G/UMTS bands (900/AWS/2100 MHz) and four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

Compatible with 3G on AT&T (U.S.) and these wireless providers in Canada.
Supports three 3G/UMTS bands (850/1900/2100 MHz) and four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

I have ordered. Just curious if we get a choice. I would prefer AT&T version.

Sweet!

This is exactly the kind of mobile development partnership I have been hoping for. It’s great to see that Google recognizes the value of the Unity developer community. Just ordered the license. I hope others do the same and we can get one of the giants to line up behind us… Can’t think of a better way to show our support than putting our own $$ into the mix. Keep up the great work and momentum! Looking forward to the U3 release.

Congratulations on this, but I am almost afraid to mention the ‘Elephant in the room’ which is the status of Unity for iOS4.

As I understand it, Android is Java based. Will Unity for Android still support all of our C# scripts?

Hi, it would be nice if the android versions were added to the comparative table of licenses, to be able to weight the differences between android and android pro versions.

this is really exciting – it says I’m getting a Nexus One! looks like I ordered in time. I can’t wait!

@Tom
You are right, if I would like to start with Android (when non-Pro version gets available) I could combine it with the free version of Unity so I get it for a much lower price, that’s great. Now I understand why the free version is still offered in the shop.

Ok, the current offer is only for pro users so there’s no chance to get the Nexus One in my case. ;-) But I wonder how many orders you already got, the comments here are rather sparsely yet…

Wow, that’s what I call a great deal, at least at first view.
But you need the Pro license first so newcomers which are only interested in the Android platform have to pay another $1200 just for the desktop version they don’t want to use. That’s a deal breaker.
Anyway, I love all the progress on this platform.
