 Hi


I saw a post saying key capturing in the background is not possible ..
is this still the case? or was thre any recent changes to make this
happen ? I wonder why this capability is closed when there are lot of
genuine use cases. Is it possibel to do the same with some special
rights?.

Yes.


No.

1. what display resolution to expect?

Hi there,

I wonder whether there is a minimal display resolution I can expect
for Android programs.

Especially with the news about the Kogan Agora, which is said to have
too low a resolution at 240 x 320.
And then again there come emulator skins with exactly that resolution
with the SDK.

Now, should I make sure that applications work and look well on 240 x
320
or can I expect larger resolution on actual devices?

thanks -

I'm doing a couple of Android presos in March... I'm assuming that I'll have
to point a video camera at the device.  I'd love to hear that there's a
better way. -T
