 Since Android 1.5 (API Level 3), if I use the Desktop API of Gears API
in the Android browser, the Javascript flow breaks.

    <script type="text/javascript" src=" 
    <script type="text/javascript">
    alert("This alert works fine");

    var desktop = google.gears.factory.create('beta.desktop');

    alert("This alert is never shown");

No problems with any other API such as Geolocation API or Database

Really I don't know if this issue belongs to Android or Google Gears,
but in previously versions of Android Desktop API worked fine.

1. Created APNs don't show up in APN list (fw 1.5)


I have a piece of code that creates some APNs with this call:
The APNs are correctly created both on fw 1.1 and 1.5 (a query
correctly returns them) but on fw 1.5 they don't show up in the device
APN settings screen.

Has anyone any hints on the reasons of this behavior?


2. Bluetooth sound output


I just noticed, using the HTC Dream that using a bluetooth headset was
really easy for phone calls, but nothing seemed to be available for
videos / music sound output. V1.0 limitations are not at fault since
when you play a music and start a call, you can hear the music in the
headset for a second. So it's technically possible, just not available
in the settings.

Does anybody knows how to redirect programatically the sound output to
the blutooth headset ?

I'd like to code a little app that let you listen to your music while
looking like a total idiot with a big device{*filter*} to your hear :-)

Cheers !
