HTC Magic release in Spain, with apps on SD?

 I was browsing Google News, and I stumbled on some articles that said
that the HTC Magic was released in Spain today.  So curious, I went to
the Vodafone Spain site (using Google Translate of course!) and sure
enough, it read that the countdown was complete and you could get
yours today!  But then when I was looking at the description it read
"8GB MicroSD card to store your APPLICATIONS, music, photos or
videos" maybe this is just a translating issue (doubt it!), a
slip up (they didn't know what they were talking about), or maybe,
just maybe they're hinting at something here.  Maybe this is the
response to the dire call that so many have been pleading for.
Myself, I think it would be AMAZING!!!

What about you guys?

Scroll to the last line of the description, near the bottom.

 Android 1.5 does not support installing applications on the SD card.

 Maybe they meant PC based applications ( Linux / Mac / M$ ) and you are 
assuming Android applications.  I carry Putty, VNC and a few other apps 
on my phone just in case of emergencies.  :-)

1. ListView and custom rows containing EditText

Hello everyone,
 I had problems today concerning ListView/ListAdapter... I'd like to
get an activity that is very similar to the "New contact" one in v0.9.
Basically a ListView, that is expandable by custom rows containing
EditText, RateBars, etc..
I tried by extending BaseAdapter's onView (the simple way by inflating
layout-xmls per row), which actually worked, but nevertheless, it
raised a couple of problems which I want to address here.

1. Whenever I "touch" an EditText and start typing, the focus jumps to
the respective EditText of the first row that has the same inflated
listitem-layout. Navigating with keys works.

2. Changing orientation of the device in emulator (Ctrl+F12) causes
the EditTexts to lose all changes made. Do I really need to save their
states manually?

3. How to get a row that sticks to the bottom (the two buttons in "New
contact")? It is apparently achieved by an additional row containing

So, are there any solutions around that I did not see yet? I had a
look at Mark Murphy's blog, and also some of the tutorials on

Thanks & Cheers,
