 Speaking of Engadget...

 http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/02/nexus-one-gets-a-software-update-enables-multitouch/ 

I'll give it a shot some time this PM. If pinch-and-zoom aka
multitouch works as advertised, kudos.

 I skipped the video and jumped right to the update.

Nice. Finally.

In Maps it's not quite perfect; after releasing, the map animates to a
discrete zoom level.

Along with this update, we'll probably also need an update to the SDK.
Overlays (of my app anyway) do not receive draw events   during
multitouch pinching. Only after release, when the map animates to a
discrete zoom level, do the draw events come through.

 I followed the following instructions:
 http://www.androidcentral.com/how-manually-update-your-nexus-one 
includes link to download mirror
(They assume you know how to use adb)

Disclaimer: I do this with relative impunity; I use the N1 mostly as
dev phone only.

A more serious issue discovered. For lack of a better description, app
sporadically disconnects from the underlying MapView, which turns
completely blank (not even the grid is being displayed). Manually
zooming brings it back but it totally throws off program-driven
zooming and animate-to's.

This make sense (although maybe it should be an option). The map is
only rendered on Google's servers at discrete zoom levels. It will
look best if the tiles are drawn 1:1, otherwise you'll get blurring or
aliasing.

Other Threads

1. Which View/Layout does the Market app (1.6) details activity use?

I see that the description section is not selectable and assume it is
pretty trivial to define whether something like that (and headings) is
selectable or not...

In my case, some rows are selectable and others have views within them
that are selectable (think of a displayed sentence where individual
words are clickable).

Given this, and if I understand you correctly, then the MergeAdapter
is the best way to go?

2. How to customize onscreen keyboard? Please help!



You can't. You can create your own soft keyboard, and convince users to
switch to it -- but then you will need to create a *complete* soft
keyboard, since their choice is for their phone, not your application.


Then make your "soft keyboard" be part of your custom view. Sounds like
12 Button widgets would do the trick.
