 Doesn't sound possible to start with......
How does the G1 communicate with Canon IXUS when the only thing the
canon can do over USB is to act as a card reader? it can even write to
the SD card....;/
(I have a Canon IXUS as well..)

 Nick, you need the Android sdk to support USB host functions, which is
what this enhancement calls for:

Best you can do right now is star the enhancement above to give it
weight on the roadmap.

 Hi




Many modern digital cameras use IR port for remote shooting. I dont
have G1 right now, so question: does it (G1) has IR port? If so then I
am eager to try my future G1 as remote control for my Pentax K20D.

Um... the G1 has an IR port?  Not the last time I checked.

 So the G1 doesn't have a infrared port... i dont believe it would be
available as external optional device..

Eventually you should take a look at:

 http://gphoto.sourceforge.net/ 

These guys seem to have a remote control for over 1000 cameras and
they use linux, so a port should be possible (if android isn't too
much away of the needed core functions ;-) )

Good luck and give us an update if it works ;-)

2. incomingNumber -> contact name - What is the right way?

Hello.

I am using a PhoneStateListener to determine the incomingNumber for a
phone call. What is the right way to get the corresponding contact
name?

I have tried:

http://paste.pocoo.org/show/LuRcRJZImQvEgSpE1uzV/

( I have also used People.NUMBER_KEY)

But I'm always getting a cursor with the count of zero. (the number is
in the phonebook)

Why doesn't that work?

I'm looking forward reading your responses. Thank you very much.

Regards
