 We are working on platform choice for an android device in a web pad
kind of form factor. It will not have any mobile capabilities, only
WiFi, with main functionality being web browsing, calendar, alarm,
picture viewing and internet radio.
The device does not have to multi-task more than 3 applications at the
same time. The browsing experience should be good, we are planning to
use a HVGA display similar to the G1.
We have two choices for the chipset, one is a 240MHz ARM9 and another
is a dual core ARM9 @ 400MHz. Here I would like to know if the 240MHz
ARM9 would be sufficient for running Android.

1. Passing variables using intents


I am trying to pass some variables from a spinner to be displayed in
the following activity but whenever I do
variable.setText(String.valueOf(thing)); my app crashes.

This is my intent

Intent s= new Intent(NewCompetition.this,Target.class);
                s.putExtra("attempts", attempt);
                s.putExtra("distance", distance);
                s.putExtra("tool", tool);

I have checked the status of these variables in the parent activity
and they display fine.

In the child activity...

public class Target extends Activity
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */

        private TextView name, attVal, scoreVal, attMax, roundVal, roundMax;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)

        Intent intent = this.getIntent();
        Bundle b = intent.getExtras();
        String rounds = b.getString("rounds");
        String shotround = b.getString("attempts");
        String distance = b.getString("distance");
        String firearm = b.getString("tool");
        //round.setText(String.valueOf(round));  The app crashes if I
include this line, I've tried it for all of the variables


If anybody could offer ant advice it would be very much appreciated.
