 Hello Google Android Team,

Could you please let us know when android dev phone would be available
in the market. We were waiting for long time. Now even the
notification in  http://android.brightstarcorp.com/index.htm site also 
way beyond. It says dev phone would available early September. Where
as time crosses even mid September. Its a humble request to Google
android team to let us know when possibly it would available and if it
is not what are the other alternatives to have development hand set.
Because my development is drastically getting hampered without
development handset.



Waiting for Android Dev phone for long time

 I'm wondering if they are planning to drop the program due to emergence 
of Android phones from other carriers?  I'm going to watch what Sprint 
does because if I recall correctly they had a pretty good program for 
developers as far as getting phones and an inexpensive month-to-month 
developer phone account so you can test the phone.

1. setPreviewFrameRate not working on device


I'm doing some processing on the preview frames returned from the
camera using:

onPreviewFrame(byte[] data, Camera camera)

Before starting the preview I set the preview frame rate like this:

Camera.Parameters p = c.getParameters();

This works fine on the Android Emulator, but on the device I'm still
getting approx 15 fps.

Has anyone else had this problem and how have they solved it?



2. How can we restart an Activity properly?

Hi All,
I created a restart() method to restart an Activity, there are some
reasons for us to do this since there are some thing that we can not
do unless we make the Activity completely restarted, for example, if
the SurfaceView is created in GPU memory and we want to "move" it back
to normal memory, than we have to restart the Activity.
Anyway, the following cod is our implementation of restart():

    public void restart(String commandLineArguments)
        Intent intent = new android.content.Intent();
        intent.setClass(this, this.getClass());  //We will start the
Activity itself, not any other
        //this.finish();                     //I need to remove this
line, otherwise the new Activity will just live for a short moment.

The code is almost same as the SDK sample cod from "Forwarding.java"
except the last line "this.finish()". If we have this line, then the
newly started Activity will be shut down too (why?). After I
eliminated this line, a new Activity is started successfully but the
"old activity" is still inside of the Activity Stack, as the result,
there going to be numbers of instance of same Activity in the Activity

So the question is: how to properly kill previous Activity in the
newly launched Activity? Or, in other words, how can a Activity knows
"who launched me? and need to terminate it" I tried to use Intent, but
could not find a suitable function.

Many thanks for any suggestions.
