In the latest versions of Android the notification area is on the upper left and there is another drop-down menu on the upper right corner of the interface.
What is the name of that are and what's the name for the widgets that are in that area ?
And by name I mean the name of the component as specified by Google guidelines and APIs, not just "widget" .
In other words if I want a new control in that area I need to code a <...> ?
For reference, see the source.
