best phone to get? normal g1 vs dev

by Brendan Miller » Mon, 13 Apr 2009 12:13:26 GMT

 Is there a real advantage to getting the android developer phone in
terms of doing application development? What are the pros and cons?

What about just using the phone as a normal user? Having a dev phone
would allow me to install unofficial system software and perhaps
native software, correct?

Thanks,
Brendan

1. link to an existing app in the market

Hi
I am having problems going to the android market (from the code in the
mobile)

I am trying the two following approaches, both unsuccessful:

1)
                myWebView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
                myWebView.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
                myWebView.loadUrl("http://market.android.com/search?
q=pname:com.android.main.v30");
                myWebView.setVisibility(RelativeLayout.VISIBLE);

with this approach, I get a frustrating not found error 404




2)
                 Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
                 intent.setData(Uri.parse("market://search?
q=pname:com.android.main.v30"));
                 startActivity(intent);

with this, I get the following error
07-29 12:48:56.103: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(240):
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException: No Activity found to handle
Intent { action=android.intent.action.VIEW data=market://search?
q=pname:com.android.main.v30 }





Does anybody know what I am missing?

Thanks a lot
