Is There Ever Going to be a Google Chrome Mobile for Android?

 You must run windows. (Not being snarky, but that is the only place chrome
runs.. no mac, no linux.)

Android is webkit for a very simple reason - its embeddable. Its small, it
has a decent separation of display (java, on android) and core engine (C)
and in general works small.

Chrome .. doesn't. (By design, in fact, its a memory hog.) So I can't speak
for google, but I can say its -very- unlikely, for a lot of reasons.

 You either run chromium (a different beast, and as far as I know they have
made no actual releases) or you run under an emulator/translator such as
wine.

Or can you point me to the chrome linux download page? I'm all ears, I'd
love to try it. :)

 Chrome uses a one-process-per-window model that trades stability/security
for memory use and efficiency. That is fine on a desktop with multiple gigs
of ram, not so good on an embedded device.

                Log.e("2", "2");
                if(allMessage==null)
                {
                        Log.e("null", "null");
                }
                Cursor c = a.managedQuery(allMessage, null, null, null, null);
                Log.e("3", "3");
                String logs="";
                Log.e("first", String.valueOf(c.getColumnCount()));
                while  (c.moveToNext())
                {
                        String row = "";
                        int index=c.getColumnCount();
                        //row = c.getString(2) + "-" + c.getString(11) + "-" +
c.getString(;
                        for(int i=0;i<index;i++)
                                row=row+"column1" +c.getString(i);
                        logs = logs + row + "\n";
                }
                Log.e(getClass().getSimpleName(), logs );


        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
                Log.e("Exception",e.toString());

        }

2. Is there any Android Handset which CDMA based?

> Will the GsmCellLocation give me the proper result in CDMA network. If

Until a version of Android ships with documented CDMA support, there is no
good way to know. You are welcome to putter around the Android open source
repository to try to find an answer (http://source.android.com).
