 Congratulations to the ADC winners and finalists! 

Those apps look fantastic as a starting point for the newly-announced 
Android Market: 

Also, many thanks to the Android team, for not only surviving the ADC 
gauntlet, but for opening the kimono just a bit and describing the 
Market. Those of us trying to beat back the rumor-mongering welcome 
public statements like this that enhance the Android vision. Besides, 
it's always good to see places where we all can plug into the Android 

So, again, congratulations and thanks!

both weather application did not make it... what a waste to award them ADC

 Thank you all for providing benchmark standards in many categories.
The applications look like they will serve people well.  They make a
good and comprehensible foundation in that customers can figure out
that they want these!

A lot of people did, and managed, a nice set of work. Which is always
good to see.

Thank you,



Congratulations, ADC Winners / Thanks, Android Team!

 This is the beginning of the Mobile Revolution!

"After a pause to recover from the collapse of the telecommunications
economic bubble of the 1990s, the infrastructure
for global, wireless, Internet-based communication is entering the
final stages of development. The pocket
videophone I borrowed in Tokyo was proof that a high-speed wireless
network could link wireless devices and
deliver multimedia to the palm of my hand. The most important next
step for the companies that would deploy
this technology and profit from it has nothing to do with chips or
network protocols but everything to do
with business models, early adopters, communities of developers, and
value chains. It's not just about building
the tools anymore. Now it's about what people use the tools to do."

1. RDP client using OpenGL on Android

Hello all!

I am a newbie on Android. Actually myself and few of my college mates
are building a RDP client app on Android.

The main point is that we do not want to display the bitmap images
sent by the server. RDP protocol suggests a GDI extension. (http://

According to this extension, the server sends drawing instructions. So
using openGL we want to draw the bitmap by following the instructions
sent by the server.

We are afraid about the openGL capabilities. Will it take too much
memory and ARM processing to draw a desktop image?

rom cyanogen yg didalemnya mendistribusikan closed source Android apps.. and
those apps are..
Gmail, Gtalk, Android Market, etc..

this is bad man.. klo misal cyanogen ga boleh bikin rom dgn adanya aplikasi2
