I'm new to android dev. I would like to make a game.

I'm looking for a 2D game framework that handles all the opengl stuff,
is such a thing existing ?

I heard that submitting a game to the android market is not open to
all countries, is that true ? I'm living in France is there a turn
around to submit an appl to the market ?

2D and OpenGL? You know that OpenGL is mainly for 3D?!

Thats right. I don't know which countries have the permissions, but I
guess France is one of them.

Your welcome!

 I don't know of any frameworks as of yet -- you might try pinging
Chris Pruett to see if he's releasing his side-scrolling opengl game
any time soon (check out his Google IO talk on real time game
development for Android). Also look at his sprite method test, which
covers the typical methods of drawing 2D sprites on the screen.

1. Getting outgoing number on HTC Hero (Sense) from HtcDialer

First, just let me apologize if this has been answered before, but I
feel like I'm been all over the net to find the solution to this.

What I'm trying to achieve:
An "outgoing call" BroadcastReceiver which listens for
"NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intents. Since the application is only suppose
handle certain predefined phone numbers the receiver need to check the
outgoing phone number, and here lays the problem.

The problem:
When running on emulator or placing a call through the People/Contacts
application on HTC Hero everything works just fine and the
broadcastreceiver receives the "NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intent. However,
when running through the dialer on HTC Hero (which is htcDialer and
not the default android dialer) the "NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intent never
seems to be fired and therefor the receiver never gets the outgoing
phone number.
I've tried listening to PHONE_STATE changes, but then I haven't found
any way of retrieving the phone number.

The question:
Is there any way to get the outgoing phone number on HTC Hero (sense)
when using htcDialer?
