cyclic "android.process.acore" failure (1.0r2 and 1.1r1)

I hope this is the correct area. I have been using the SDK for a while
now. For some reason
only projects I create cause the home screen to go into cyclic lockup
as the force close on
android.process.acore just shortly launches another one that fails.

I can delete userdata-qemu.img to get a running emulator back. I've
tried updating / replacing
everything. I can write a very simple project and that is fine. Copy
that and update it with say
more resource files and it then causes the above problem for no
apparent reaason.

It is hard to believe an appplication can inadvertantly cause such a
major problem. I'm a bit
like a headless chicken, I do not know where to start looking for the
cause in my code.

There is a repeated Android runtime error,
Uncaught handler  : thread application loader exiting due to uncaught
java.lang.ClassCast Exception: android .text.Spanned string

1. Samsung Galaxy suitable for development work?

I can see that I'm going to have to get an actual phone sooner than
later, and for various reasons I'll need to get an "unlocked" version.
As long as I'm laying out that many $$$, I might as well get one that
I can use personally and shop some apps, etc.

So would the Samsung Galaxy S be suitable for development work? I
assume that a general unlocked version would have all the expected
Android built-in apps and would not have restrictions on what apps can
be installed and from what sources. Any comments on this device?

(This also assumes that I can actually get one. The effects of that
chip shortage that they've been talking about seems to be hitting the
supply lines already.)

If you are new to Android and the complexities of Java, you may wish

Eclipse, learn the Android SDK, Java and XML.

want to spend hours learning a low level language like Java. MobiForms
offers one compact tool for development and deployment with most
programming done with drag and drop.

MobiForms is the world's first rapid application development tool
designed for Google Android smartphones. Additionally MobiForms apps
