I'm interest to develop android application.

but I have a question about android device.
Will every device that use android OS has physical 5-way direction
keys and 5 main keys(call, call end, home, menu, back)?
In the documents for developers, I read that developers can assume
those keys to develop application, but i'm wonder that those physical
keys are mendatory things for device manufacture company.
If the device doesnt's support those physical keys, is it okey to use
applications which are sold in android market?

Plz let me know that can i assum and use those keys to develope my

1. Handling Orientation Changes that occur in another Activity

I am having an interesting problem and would appreciate any advice. My
app uses WebView as its primary view. Using a javascript hook, it can
launch the camera so the user can take a picture. The camera is
launched using

Intent i = new

When the camera starts, it makes sense to use landscape mode, so the
user naturally turns the phone on its side. After the user takes a
picture, control returns to my launching Activity (actually, my
Acitivity gets restarted because it usually gets destroyed to free up
memory for the camera on my Moto Droid). When my WebView gets
recreated, I restore its state from the Bundle I saved in

Now everything looks ok, except the phone is still in landscape mode.
However, when the user turns the phone upright bringing back into
portrait mode, my WebView takes up only half of the screen. Somewhere
along the way, the scale of my WebView got lost. This seems like such
a minor issue, but it is driving me crazy.

Does anyone have an idea why this might be happening? What is the
correct way to preserve the scale of my WebView? I am hesitant to hard
code any scale factors because what looks good on my device may not be
the same for another.
