 >  1) Is there a way to programmatically delete a home-screen shortcut

You can use the UNINSTALL_SHORTCUT intent provided by Home.

No, there's no such directory. Home uses a private database that only
Home can access and manipulate.

1. Error coming while creating a login page

It seems you are using out-dated code that no longer works in SDK 1.0.

Look for onActivityResult() on this page:

For the second question, post your login_screen.xml, if the problem
remains after you have upgraded properly to SDK.



2. Symbian UIQ - First Android "kill"

MOTO have officially declared that they won't continue with UIQ and
their own Linux port, but rather turn to Android.

SonyEricsson haven't done that publicly but insiders claim that SE
indeed is testing Android on production-phones.  SE's alternative can
hardly be to continue with UIQ since there is not support enough that
platform (anymore).  Switching to S60 (Nokia's flavor of Symbian)
doesn't seem to be a good alternative either since a lot of stuff will
need to be rewritten even if it is called Symbian.

That it takes some 12-24 months to get something out of the door is
sad, but better late than never!
