I'd like to create a map application using the new google maps.
My country (Israel) appears in the maps included in the android 2.1
and not in 1.5 and 1., so i'd like to develop an application using the
2.1 maps, but each time I am tryin, it shows me the old maps...

1. Request for developers HTC G1 (T-Mobile) review

Hi Android developers,

Can someone make a brief review of G1 mobile from a developer point of view?

Think about:
- G1 features not working properly
- issues when uploading custom applications
- does an application running in the emulator behaves as expected in the
real mobile (G1)?
- is it a true open source OS or are there some restrictions?
- issues when compiling the Android OS source code from scratch and updating
the G1 OS
- ...

many thanks


2. Updating From HTTP

Hey all, thanks for all your help so far!  I have the following
function running on a timer every 20 seconds or so.  However, every
time it runs, my user interface for this program (an EditText box and
a submit Button) freezes until the HttpPost is finished.  Is there a
way for me to run this function "in the background" or something so it
doesn't freeze the interface?  Is there a more efficient way to do
what I'm trying to do here?  The "chatscreen" variable is a TextView.
Thanks for your help!

         public void updateChat() {
                // get chat updates
                HttpClient updateclient = new DefaultHttpClient();
                HttpPost updatepost = new 
        ResponseHandler<String> responseHandler = new
        String responseBody;
                try {
                        // send message
                        responseBody = updateclient.execute(updatepost, 
                        if (responseBody != "")
                } catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
                        // error sending message
