 Also make sure you have a maps key, the error message you are getting
look unrelated, but just check that to make sure.

 You could try adding the permission for course location but to be
honest it doesn't work on my emulator so once I got it working on an
actual device I just left it.

 hanks MrChaz for your reply.

So this issue is not for me alone. Earlier I put "Coarse location"
only, and is not working, so I just changed to "Fine location", still
its not working. I am trying this for some time. Now, I will put both
and will try, want to see any difference is there.

  can use maps fine in the emulator.

You have the perms right, and you are pulling in the maps application,
but you didn't say whether or not you have your key, and are using it
in the layout file. You do have the key though right? And in your
MapView layout file you have android:apiKey with that value, right?

"In order to display Google Maps data in a MapView, you must register
with the Google Maps service and obtain a Maps API Key. For
information about how to get a Maps API Key, see Obtaining a Maps API
Once you have a Maps API Key, you need to reference it from a special
attribute -- android:apiKey -- in the MapView element in the XML
layout. If you are instantiating a MapView directly from code, you
should pass the Maps API Key in the MapView constructor. "

 hanks a lot Charlie Collins,

What is the mistake I did is, I already have the MAP API key, but in
my XML, some letters of the key are missing, After you said, I again
checked and found out that. Now perfectly alright.

 Did you add the apiKey in your mapview?

1. Resistive touchscreens

Does the android support resistive touch screens?

All the android devices seems to be capacitive ones and they differ
from resistive ones mainly in 2 aspects:

- Unlike resistive screens, capacitive touch screens report Z and
android seems to use that heavily.
- Resistive screens need calibration. Does the android has support for
getting the calibration data and applying the transformation on all
the incoming coordinates?

I am not clear where this will fall under? Kernel or Android framework?
