    Does the Android SDK include an IDE for writing code?

    If it doesn't, is there a good free program to use for this?
    I'm interested in writing Java \ C++ on a tablet with a keyboard dock.

    The ADK comes with a version of Eclipse that is already pre-integrated with everything, you do not need to install your own copy of Eclipse.

    Android Studio isn't ready for prime time yet. You'll get much better support on the Internet when you run into problems if you are using Eclipse.

    EDIT: If you're writing C++, Eclipse is going to suck. When I write native Android code I use a normal text editor. The build step for native code is completely different at any rate. However, at least Eclipse takes care of bundling the native modules into your APK correctly. It's not as bad as I perhaps make it sound.

    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
