How often does gmail sync on the G1?

 I am used to Outlook Express where I can set the interval for how
often my PC checks for new emails. I can't find an adjustable variable
for gmail on my phone or the website- just an "autosync" option. (I'd
like to check once every hour)

Does the phone notify me, when set on auto, as soon as an email comes

Does it actively check with the server every minute or something-
thereby running down a lot more battery power?

Are there any apps to set the interval for email checking?

 It is pushed from the server, not polled by the client, so there's no
fundamental notion of a sync interval. The "only" cost of the system
is that of keeping a TCP socket open, which is reasonably low.

1. interpreting captured data from PV

Hi Ravi,

As per your suggestion I captured 2 bytes of data which is 12 10 and I
am using this to configure the decoder. But after that PV is sending
below data. it is of 997 bytes. currenty my OMX component is not
handling this data, so returning error and I am not getting what
exactly this data and how omx compoent should handle this?



This data  I captured and it is same as of original file, but dont
know what to do with this data or just I have to ignore?

2. Android - minimal UI, services or broadcast recievers?

I have an application that will have no User Interface (not exactly
none altogether but VERY minimal).

I want it to scan for Wifi access points at regular intervals, check
the connected state of Wifi and check the connected level of the
currently connected access point.

It also listens for the OUT_GOING_CALL broadcast and traps the call if
connected to wifi and then pops up a dialog that tells the user the
call has been blocked and offers the user cheaper options than Gsm if
there are any.

I currently use the Broadcasts to get the Scan Results and to get
changes in the connected Level of the wifi connection also.

However I had thought that moving these to a service of my own would
be a good idea, however would I be better leaving them as Broadcast
Recievers in Non Activtiy and Non Service classes and just make the
main Engine of the application a service that turns on and off these
broadcasts from there Classes (Objects) ?

So I was wondering would having several services, one that does the
wifi stuff, one that does the call monitoring, and one that drives the
whole thing?

Or would I be better off using BroadcastRecievers to listen out for
changes instead and implement a timertask to scan for access points
and only have one service being the engine that drives it all?
