This client launch follows the general updating of SkyDrive earlier in the month (which Rafe covered here on AAWP) as Microsoft prepare for Windows 8 to reach the mass market. Providing seamless transfer between all of the major smartphone platforms should ease the adoption of Windows Phone 8 in social groups, and of course there's nothing wrong with using a Windows desktop and an Android smartphone, which makes this release a pretty obvious step.
It's also about confidence. If people start to use Microsoft products in day to day use, when they come to look for a new smartphone there's less of a barrier to adopting a Windows Phone device.
You can download your copy of SkyDrive for Android from Google Play.
