I am starting to use eclipse ide for developing android apps for my samsun tab.

I downloaded and installed eclipse and it seems to work ok

When I go down to pulldown window and choose sdk manager it says "sdk manager will show up shortly" but nothing ever does....

all info I found on web seems to be for way old versions of this stuff....

I downloiaded the eclipse bundle from and have the eclipse ide running but dont understand the significance of android sdk manager?? how are these to work together? what other (packages?) do I need to install, what is relation between sdk mgr and eclipse, basic questions like that, thanks

    I think "told me what I needed to know" means I get the points ?
