 Does anyone know if Android will work on the i900? It is coming with
windows mobile, which makes me think it would be easier to install
another system on it.

 Same here!

Too bad the specs on the G1 as revealed today aren't all that great
(sub-par camera, etc.)--I'm sure future iterations will definitely be
much better hardware-wise. The next step for the Omnia will have to be
either Windows Mobile 7 or the Android OS. Since the WM7 will be
coming out in the latter half of 2009, my money's on porting the
Android OS to all WM6 devices first.

If Google wants to rapidly increase market share this would be a great
opportunity to replace the WM OS which currently operates on
approximately 19% of all smart phones in North American alone. And
since it's open source, the Android OS will have a army of Google
devotees to code for their particular handset.

 Yeah, I'm very interested in that too since I have an i900 Omnia and
do not like the windows interface at all :)
I'd really love to install a working Linux distro on my PPC and I
believe Google Android is the best one out there :)
Bye,

Luca

 Does anyone know if there is actually anyone working on this?  I'm
happy to help, but I don't know where to start.  Has the full android
source been made available?

officially open source:

Any coders out that want to take the plunge and port android over to
the Omnia?

 Here's an article listing all the rumors about Samsung building an
Omnia-based touch screen phone on the Android OS. This has so far been
confirmed only by the Korean New outlet, ETNews, but many tech blogs
have cited it as evidence of Samsung porting Android over. If that's
really the case, then it's great news as many programmers would have
much trouble recoding certain software to accommodate the Omnia's many
functional differences to the G1:  http://tinyurl.com/8w9tc6

 I just got a samsung omnia. I love the phone, I hate the OS. If
Android will be ported to the Omnia soon enough, I will be more than
happy!

 Basically, what needs to be done is writing the drivers, tweaking it
to work without a hardware keyboard, add support for accelerometer
screen rotating and find a way to reflash the omnia with it!


All I could possibly do is write some drivers! We need many
experienced users! We could ask for some help the guys from
hackndev.com!

 Count me in. I got this phone ready to start hacking at it. I would
love android on it, simply for the open source.
The OS on the android is awful. Who ever thought that putting windows
mobile on a touch phone that's competing with an iPhone was a good
idea seriously has to have their head examined. I'm willing to bug
test too. Anything to get rid of this finger hating windows mobile.

 Now that the Magic (G2) has been announced without a hardware keyboard
does that help the i900s cause? One of the issues was getting a soft
keyboard available for the i900. Does this make any difference?

Other Threads

1. More MediaPlayer questions

I've been googling and searching the groups for answers and haven't
been able to find anything concrete.  I have several questions
regarding the use of MediaPlayer if somebody can help me out:

1. I need to package an audio resource with my application, which I
have done in /res/raw.  However, it appears that I must use
MediaPlayer.create() to use a resource ID rather than
MediaPlayer.setDataSource().  I found some references to creating a
URI to raw via "android:resource://package/raw/name" and
"android:resource//package/" + resourceId.   However, both of these
tries resulted in IOExceptions during setDataSource.  I'm assuming due
to a bad URI.  Is it possible to get a valid URI in SDK 1.0 that will
point to a raw resource?

2. I'm writing an app that does some tracking and will typically go
hand in hand with the music player running.  Part of my app will, at
times, need to play sound on top of the running audio stream.  Is
there any way for my app to get ahold of and temporarily pause the
music stream so that the user will be able to clearly hear my audio?
Is this prevented because it's considered 'bad behavior'?  (I hope not
because in my case its actually good and desirable behavior)

3. I see that I can set the audio stream but is there any
documentation/discussion/details on what the various streams are, how
they are used, and how they interact with one another?   For example,
as mentioned above I want to be able to pause/override/interrupt a
music playing stream with my notification but I would NOT want to have
my notification play if they are on an active phone call.   Also, is
there any doc/discussion/detail on which methods can be invoked on the
mediaplayer at what times?  As I experiment I seem to get a lot of
'invalid media state' errors when I try things with very little
indication as to what state it is in and how I get it from the bad
state to an acceptable state for the method in question.

Thanks for any assistance.  I've been researching for a couple of days
but all the information I can find is very sparse or appears to be
things that were valid in early SDKs but may not be any longer.

Thanks,

Greg
