 Hi,

I'm unable to understand the difference between "Standard Android platform
2.2" and "Android + Google APIs". Because while adding Platform in Netbeans
we can add either of two.

 The Google one contains also API which is not part of the standard
Android SDK. For example the Google Maps is not part of Android.

   Once CallLog Database is observed. The database is having
information about CallLog like

   Is this design because of performances issues?

   Please correct me if i am wrong?
