Android Port for the Nokia E71?

 Hi all,

I was wondering if there's a Android Port either in the works or
available for the Nokia E71 smartphone.

The nokia e71 has a QWERTY keyboard, 320x240 screen, BlueTooth, WiFi,
Micro USB port (Full speed),  microSD memory card slot, (hot
swappable, max. 8 GB),  110 MB internal dynamic memory, GPRS/EDGE/3G
(WCDMA)/HSDPA support, 3.2MP Camera, ARM Processor (ARM11 - I think) @
~370Mhz and 110MB RAM.

I would love to see Android on this phone, as it would be really good
over the existing OS already on it. It's running Symbian OS with the
Nokia S60 GUI at the moment, however Android would really be nice on
it (even if it's a loader that boots into Android from a program, like
loadlin for DOS).

I hope to hear responses from you guys (and girls).

1. OpenGL ES 2.0 Development


I'm currently trying to develop in OpenGL ES 2.0 using the Android 2.2
platform (revision 2) in Eclipse, but I must say it's been an
unpleasant experience so far.

Firstly, I see forum posts from as recently as June saying that there
is no support for OpenGL ES 2.0 in the emulator.  Is this still the
case - i.e. do I really have to buy a Nexus One device just to develop
using this API??

Also, I'm having trouble with the "uses-feature" property in the
manifest file.
I'm using this line in my manifest:

<uses-feature android:glEsVersion="0x00020000" />

And this code to read the value (taken from the Android sample code):

        public boolean detectOpenGLES20()
                        am = 
                        info = am.getDeviceConfigurationInfo();

                return (info.reqGlEsVersion >= 0x20000);

However info.reqGlEsVersion only ever has the value of zero.  Any
ideas why this might be?  I've tried other values, such as 0x00010000,
but it's like it's not even reading this value.

Any help appreciated...


2. TCP connections from android device as client

Showing your actual code might help, looks like it's just timing out.
So i'd guess there's a firewall issue.
Also, make sure you have the correct INTERNET permissions on your
android manifest file.
