What would be the language of choice to localize to India. Given that a lot of 
people speak English is it even worth it?

If you want localized for India, you can release it as "Mera Joint" (My 
Joint)!! Haha..

take care,

I think instead of making a map or mail program with more features than gmap 
and gmail, for small frys like the most of us, it's better to concentrate on 
niche, perhaps shady, areas that Google won't bother to enter into.
Here are some ideas
1. Inmate Connect -- share stories and blogs with other people that you've been 
in prison together with. The paid version automatically find you a lawyer when 
you are arrested (again).
2. Pull My Tooth -- tie your G1 to a loose tooth and drop it. While the phone 
is falling, which it detects using motion sensor, a nice tune is played to make 
the whole experience so soothing.
3. Mari Joint -- Share comments about your local hash clubs and locate the 
closest one to you using GPS.
These ideas are gold! When you become rich, don't forget to thank me!

Then right on, prove your point. Try Map Editor or any of the other
apps in question. When you can show how you beat out the Google label
on your own terms AND make a living from it, I will be your biggest
supporter here, taking out all stops.

1. Trying to compile Android on to a Full blown ubuntu/linux distro

On Linux, it is possible to build the Android simulator, which runs many
parts of the platform in a single Unix process (so no real security for
you), doesn't use the custom C library, etc...

if you don't want to go this route, you will need to patch your kernel to
integrate a few Android-specific things like the Binder driver.
second, Android expects system files in different places, comes with its own
init program and scripts, etc...

running the whole of Android on top of a standard Linux installation will be
a lot of work with probably few benefits. You should probably try to get the
Dalvik VM running first on Ubuntu plus some of the system libraries that
don't depend too much on Android-specific behaviour.


2. RIL data service flow path

Dear all,
Is there any one has experience the data service path of RIL?
I mean, in the Android reference RIL, the AT command will go though RIL and
TTYS0 to connected MODEM, if I want to setup a data call, what is the
routine of data flow from application to RIL to MODEM (on the assumption
that data and AT use same TTYS0)?
Thanks for your help.
