 Hello guys,
I'm new to Android technology, so I need your help please.

I'm familiar with SQL quires, so I need to use
(SQLiteDatabase.rawQuery) in order to query (android contact
database), but the question is:

How to get reference to (SQLiteDatabase) in order to deal with android
contacts database (ready made DB from another application) ?
 I passed "\data\date\\contacts" and didn't work

In case of private database created by my application; it is easy to
do that, but in case of ready made applications like
(contacts,SMS,call logs) what should I pass to the following method as

SQLiteDatabase.openDatabase(path, factory, flags)

And if I give permission to read the database; will it work?

Can anyone confirm for me that if I purchase a retail Android phone,
such as the HTC Dream (G1) that I can use it to develop applications?

I suspect that the answer is yes, but I want to confirm that a retail
phone can be used for developing apps before I shell out my money.

Thanks for any assistance.
