  can understand the developers community sentiments on this. I can only
hope Google is able to come up with a public Android SDK release soon.

 JP,

No, I don't have any inside track. I was speaking from a fellow developer
perspective, that If there's no access to the latest public SDK it would be
demoralizing big time.

 In another news today, Symbian is open sourced.  With millions of existing
Symbian phones, one has to wonder whether Android is THE mobile platform or
one of the mobile platforms...

  strongly hope Android phones can run on cheap dumb phones to expensive
smart phones. That's the only way to take global market share right now.

 The only thing that costs less is the free android OS, which counts (on
average) 20% of a phone's total cost.  Imagine free symbian OS coming out...
what's the advantage here?

The cheap phone will probably not arrive any time soon, what we will see
initially will be $499 phones similar to HTC kaiser or TyTN.  The hardware
cost will go down, but it will not be an overnight drop.

Personally I think a cheap android-based phone will be out close to end of
2009 when hardware is cheaper and os is more stable ;)

 The key point here is free and open source. If the entry barrier for the
small OEM's are removed, the cost of the devices would automatically come
down. Expecting the already established players to lower the cost on their
own is not going to benefit the end users anytime soon.

 Lol, things are becoming clearer and now I'm starting to feel sorry for
Google. It's not easy dealing with shifting, vague, contradictory, all
high-priority requirements (except the really important ones) of
carriers. Also makes sense why Google is not releasing public SDKs and doing
snapshots, as the requirements aren't even clear. The top-50 are earning
their money now and many will be doing it for free. So sad.

2. Best practice for sharing a SQLiteCursor from one Activity to another?

In one activity I build a cursor which is used to populate a ListView.

I want a secondary activity to be able to step through the cursor
entries. What's the best way to do this (bearing in mind cursor
lifecycle).

I don't care if the the system kills and restarts the secondary
activity since in that case the stepping through entries functionality
could be temporarily automatically disabled.
