For my tests I have to buy a real android phone. Emulator is cool but
I need a real one to really test my application.

Does anyone know which one is the more representative and the best to
test my application ? (my target is android 2.2)

 If you're using 2.2 features, the Nexus One is currently your only
hardware choice for an officially-supported 2.2 build. 2.2 is only
available for other handsets on custom ROMs, and this does not include
the Droid X at present. Given the apparent lockdown of the X by
Motorola, it may never run custom ROMs.

But even apart from that, IMHO the Nexus One is the closest thing to a
reference handset for the current generation of Android devices, and
it has the best developer support from Google. It'd get my vote as
your best choice for a dev phone.

1. What's the trick to do a (forward) geocode?

IIUC, doing a forward geocode (looking up an address from a name) is pretty
straightforward, you do this:

private void findLocation() {

        List<Address> locations = null;
        Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());

        try {
            locations =
geocoder.getFromLocationName(mName.getText().toString(), 5);
        } catch (IOException e) {}

If I put in "The White House" or  "A&P Washington NJ", I get nothing back,
but the application Locale shows both.  If I put in "The Empire State
Building", I do get an address back.

What's the trick?

2. WiFi in Emulator

Hi all,

  I've been trying to create a local connection to a computer with a
Socket from the emulator thinking that it would automagically uses a
emulated wifi connection. It doesn't work, in particular because wifi
is not supported on the emulator:
  - Does a Socket connection automatically choose the fastest
connection (the wifi one if it exists).
  - Why wifi not supported by the emulator? Will it be?

   For those in countries still not blessed by the grace of having the
possibility to buy a Gphone, that can be useful...
