Maps API Add-Ons Device Support?

I am designing an application for Android, and I was thinking of
adding Maps support ( 
apis/) to my application.  However, I don't want to add this if many
people with Android phones won't be able to use it.

I've found lists of devices and their API levels; however, is there a
list of devices and their compatibility with Google API add-ons?

Thank you,

 I haven't seen a list for google api compatability, however, the
google apis should work for *most* devices. The maps application can
be downloaded by anyone with a Google Experience phone, from the
market app now. The only time you're going to run into issues will be
anyone running an AOSP build, we don't have access to the official
market or gmaps app :)

I've installed apps requiring maps on hero roms, as well as the G1 and
MyTouch3G, so you should be safe for the vast majority of users.

1. when video duration or date_modified attribute available through content provider

I'm having some trouble accessing attributes like DURATION and
DATE_MODIFIED of video and image. My app access these attributes for
both type of data but if I take a picture or shoot a video the related
attributes are not immediately available through content provider e.g.
for DURATION for that specific video it returns 0.

If I restart the phone the attribute for the newly shoot video or
picture taken becomes available.

The other way to make the attributes available is to plug in and out
your phone to a computer through usb cable. Once that is done the
attributes are available.

Any comments on why this is happening ?

Is this a bug ? I need a resolution for this.
