Default Where is "B&N NST SDK"?

I cannot find B&N Nook touch SDK (Android 2.1, API 7)
There is B&N Nook color SDK (Android 2.2, API 8) and tablet (Android 2.3, API 10)
https://nookdeveloper.barnesandnoble...vices/sdk.html
Am I missing something?
I do realize, NST have slightly less memory for additional apps than NC, but it couldn’t be the reason, obviously.

There is and most likely never will be a Nook Simple Touch SDK because there is no official app support for the Nook Simple Touch and there has been no word for Apps on the NST through B&N. therefore No NST SDK

There is old Nook color SDK (Android 2.1, API 7) available still (with NC AVD)
I was wondering how good it's for NST development?
There is no NST AVD on horizon...

The original Nook Color SDK might be fine for the development of apps on the Nook Touch, the only issue you need to worry about is the EPD which I don't think the SDK would take under consideration.

Yep. I was wondering how does B&N shop do development than?
Do they have special “EPD android driver” or what?
If it’s so, the driver or whatever should available somewhere, unless NST is the only android device using it…
Don’t know much about android - I hope drivers are not complied into kernel, but something “replaceable”…

Honestly, apps for the NST can be developed with the standard Android SDK. That's how the apps in the Market are made.

And to make it friendly to the eInk display, just fill the screen with black if you think ghosting will be a problem, turn off animations, make it black-on-white, and try to avoid changing the entire screen when just changing part of it will do.
