Er, nonsense. Red Hat, Suse and other all advertise. Maybe it would be the
first time anyone tried to advertise 12,000,000 lines of code, tossed over
the wall with an open source license wrapped around them...

(This won't make it onto the actual android-discuss list: Dan Morrill
"moderated" me for having an opinion he didn't enjoy. Some "discussion".)

 It made it.









I think if Google ran ads for Android it would be the first time in
history someone tried to advertise an open source project.

 Android end users are carriers and device manufacturers. It wouldn't make
sense for Google to be advertising Android to the consumers. The Open
Handset Alliance is the way Android is being developed and marketed.

On the other hand, TMobile must be advertising G1 wherever it sells. If you
are not seeing much of G1 ads then TMobile is the one who can answer why
that is so.

 that's right but when i'd seen the G1 for the first time I thought "beark".
And the G2 is equally ugly. The Exedia is worse. The Kogan is beautiful but
posponed...
The iphone is beautiful, it works well and the appstore is on the top. hard
for us.

1. How can the app icon be changed at runtime

I'd like to be able to change the application icon at runtime; either
by providing a completely new image, or by applying badgest to the
existing icon.

Can't seem to find a way to do it that actually works, and group
search only reveals posts about changing views in  an activity.

TIA!

2. How to distinguish between dialing and active call states?

I would like to catch the moment when an outgoing dialing call becomes
active, that is accepted at the other side.
according to the documentation the CALL_STATE_OFFHOOK :
"Device call state: Off-hook. At least one call exists that is
dialing, active, or on hold, and no calls are ringing or waiting."
Makes no separation between the dialing and the active call states.
Is there any other way to distinguish between those states?
