 Hi,

I want to purchase an Android developer phone. It seems to be bit pricey at
$399 (including international shipping). Is it an absolute necessity for
testing applications before uploading to market?

Also, I wonder what the device provides that the emulator does not.
I would imagine the answer to the above depends on what features of Android
I wish to use in my app. However, I would like to know the extent of device
emulation provided by the emulator.

Does it support accelerometer, camera, maps and other sensors?

Please advice.

Regards,
Sanjeev

The ADP1 and ADP2 are for people building replacement firmware. For
ordinary Android application development, any phone that has the Android
Market on it will do.


It makes phone calls! :-)


Accelerometer, camera, sensors: not in any meaningful fashion.

Maps: yes.

 I would sincerely suggest to prefer a phone on emulator. Emulator has
serious limitations and make one stuck at a very bad state. Thought i am a
newbie but i have experienced it in these 4 months and now we are trying to
get a cheap used phone for testing.

regards,

wahib

 As you noticed, the official developer phone is a bit pricey. But
since it is still generally best to target application for 1.5, an
unlocked G1 phone is just as viable, and a lot less pricey.

You have probably already noticed that you cannot upload an app from
the emulator to the Android Market.

2. Android Market Console Pagination

Hi,

It seems that some changes have been introduced for the Market Console
to paginate if there are > 8 apps. This however appears to be broken
as page 2 only ever has 1 app, and page 3+ is always empty.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Cheers
