    I work with the htc-linux team on android/kernel ports to phones
that originally ran different version of Windows Mobile. I am
currently working on bringing our very old kernel up to date using
your experimental.git/ 2.6.35-wip branch. Would your project would be
interested in patches for this branch that add support for new boards
such as the htc rhodium? Some of the patches include new board files,
as well as more far reaching changes that allow simple things such as
gpio and clocks to be accessed in non proc-comm specific ways.

Comments/Suggestions appreciated!

 I think the community at would definitely be
interested in android support for htc phones that shipped with windows

 I am part of that community at xd-android. The problem is getting our code
upstream. With X86 Linux the process of getting community patches integrated
seems a lot more straightforward. With SOC platforms its almost like
upstream would rather not have the code than review the patches.

1. Where's my gold rush??

There has been a lot of loud fretting and stressing about app profitability
recently on this list with people invoking the panacea/gold rush that is
supposed to be the iPhone app store.  To add some perspective, check out
this guys experience with a well reviewed game on the iPhone that even got
coverage on major casual {*filter*} blogs like Kotaku:


He had a few sales spikes, but is averaging about 20 sales a day.  This
whole gold rush myth of mobile apps magically making part time indie dev's
rich overnight is just like every other gold rush, largely hype.

Also interesting, there is apparently rampant piracy going on in the iPhone
app world.  I wonder how many of the unscrupulous people who buy a game,
play it for 23 hours and return it on Android would just be pirating it
anyhow?  I would wager that its a significant number.
