 Please pardon the off topic posting, but I think all developers will
want to see this information.

Many of us have been trying to figure out how many Android phones have
been sold.  The following link breaks down some of the numbers for
mobile phone sales in 2008 (source:Gartner).  It is estimated that T-
Mobile sold 639,000 in 4th Quarter of 2008.

1. Slow Process In Android Virtual Device(AVD)


 I have download android emulator from the site,

  1. android-sdk_r08-windows.zip
  2. installer_r08-windows.exe

After downloading this file , I have installed this file in my own
computer. I have created AVD on this emulator, Android 2.2, Android
1.6. But when I start my virtual android it takes too much time to
open the software.

I tried to run my own mobile application on this emulator through
browsing. But it will take too much time to open it in that browser.
So that I am unable to test it, whether my application will run on
android or not.

I have used SDCARD 512M for both the AVD.

Anyone knows what the problem is?



2. Canvas and Bitmap overlaps each other.

Before I made this topic I've read books, guides and tutorial. Right
now I'm porting a game engine to the Android platform.

I got a problem. I'll describe it in steps:

1. Drawing a bitmap on Canvas
bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, Config.ARGB_8888);
canvas = new Canvas(bitmap);
canvas.drawColor(color, PorterDuff.Mode.CLEAR);

2. Remove the trace that is left behind by the Canvas
canvas.clearBitmap(); --> seems not working.

public void clearBitmap()
        canvas.drawColor(0x00000000, PorterDuff.Mode.CLEAR);

3. Putting the drawColor in a other method seems working
public void copyPixels(BitmapData sourceBitmapData, Rectangle
sourceRect, Point destPoint, BitmapData alphaBitmapData, Point
alphaPoint, boolean mergeAlpha)
        Rect source = new Rect((int) sourceRect.left, (int) sourceRect.top,
(int) sourceRect.right, (int) sourceRect.bottom);
                Rect dest = new Rect((int) destPoint.x, (int) destPoint.y, (int)
destPoint.x + (int) sourceRect.getWidth(),      (int) destPoint.y + (int)

        Paint paint = null;

        canvas.drawColor(Color.BLUE, PorterDuff.Mode.CLEAR);

        canvas.drawBitmap(sourceBitmapData.getBitmap(), source, dest, paint);

It clears the traces, but the canvas (which is blue) is over the whole
screen. Multiple bitmaps got overlapped by the top Canvas.

Please help me. If you need better code just say it.
