 What happens to messages sent to a device via a port directed SMS?
They are not *visibly* picked up by the phone, and do not broadcast an
intent - so they seem to disappear into the ether. Is there some way
to receive a port directed SMS or are they discarded?

I believe the message is being sent with the following header
06 // UDH length
05 // 16bit port addressing
04 // 4 bytes follow
23 F5 // Destination port
00 00 // Source port

 No information on this? I have been testing, and experimenting sending
messages to the G1 using a GSM modem and have made no progress.

1. What is latest Android device and best device?

Personally I don't think there is a single "best" device because the number of 
devices around mean that one test device probably isn't going to cover all the 

At the moment we have 4 test devices which cover the following;

HTC Tattoo - LCD QVGA screen, Direction pad, HTC Sense UI, no auto-focus 
camera, Android 1.6
G1 - LCD HVGA Screen, Track ball, keyboard, auto-focus "lower-res" camera, 
Android 1.6
Acer Liquid - LCD WVGA screen, No trackball or direction pad, auto-focus 
"higher-res" camera, Android 1.6

And, thanks to Googles generosity at the Android Developer Lab in London 
yesterday (yes, that means it was a freebie);

Nexus One - AMOLED WVGA Screen, trackball, auto-focus "higher-res" camera with 
flash, Android 2.1

This lets us cover the most of the bases of input methods, screen sizes, and 
camera abilities.

At the moment we're ensure all mainstream development runs on 1.6. There are a 
lot of devices out there with 1.6 on them, some may never see 2.0+, and so 
using 2.0+ features which would mean abandoning the 1.6 users currently doesn't 
make much sense.

Hope that's useful,


P.S. For those interested; the Android developer lab would have been well worth 
the 4+ hour round trip for me even if I didn't get a freebie phone. If you've 
not registered for one and there is space at your local lab I'd recommend it as 
it really is useful to meet people face to face and chat over some ideas.

I think i found the solution: a call to
ArrayAdapter<CharSequence>.notifyDataSetChanged fixed the problem.
