 I just found that it is not possible to type in angle brackets ('<'
and '>').

Can you?

 A also have not been able to enter those angle brackets through the
keyboard.
I can enter them using the mouse and the virtual keyboard next the
emulator, by pressing
ALT - b  for <
and
ALT - n for >

I have no idea what the logic behind this is, as many keys in
combination with ALT do not fit to what is shown on the virtual
display.

 After reboot emulator, I confirm the inability to type in characters
'<' and '>' in EditText.

Is it a bug or intented disallowance???

EditText box of emulator cannot type in these characters

 If you are trying to type these characters on your PC keyboard...
well any keyboard being used on the phone is not going to be a PC
keyboard, and in particular won't have the < and > keys where they
are.  You should use the keyboard in the skin to work with the
emulator like you would on a real device; being able to type on the
computer keyboard is just a convenience, and at this point it is not
surprising if some things don't work due to differences in the
keyboards.

Fwiw, I believe in the current emulator both the PC keyboard and the
on-screen skin keyboard deliver events to the same Linux device, which
has a keymap configured like the layout of a keyboard on a real
device, so it is very difficult to emulate the PC keyboard completely.

1. How can I receive cell location updates?

Hi,

I'm trying to receive cell location updates in a background process,
but I've only found very power inefficient ways of doing so.

PhoneStateListeners stops listening when the phone sleeps, and require
a period wake up.

The broadcast intent "android.intent.action.SIG_STR", doesn't appear
to be broadcasting.

LocationManager isn't quite the right fit, and I suspect it fails the
same way that the phonestatelister fails, being built with a listener.

The broadcast intent "PHONE_STATE_CHANGED_ACTION", isn't appropriate.

I'd rather not wake up the phone periodically when it may not have
moved an inch for hours, such as overnight. The trigger should be a
cell, not time, based.

Is there any way of doing this, such as a gsm broadcast or something
like that?

Thank you,
Bryan

2. Is there any Intent to pick file for attachment?

Hi, friends!

In application i'm developing i need to open some standard dialog to
browse files on the phone. After picking one file i'll attach it to
the message.
In Android Dev Guide i found such way to solve my problem:

                Intent intentBrowseFiles = new Intent
(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
                intentBrowseFiles.setType("*/*");
                intentBrowseFiles.addCategory
(Intent.CATEGORY_ALTERNATIVE);
                MyActivity.this.startActivityForResult
(intentBrowseFiles, PICK_FILE);

But in that dialog, when i'm trying to pick sound file, i start to
playback. And one more problem - using that dialog i can see only
gallery and music tracks.

Is there any other way to display such kind of dialog? Or maybe stop
to playback the music?

Thanks :)
