Have fun!

I demonstrated android at work, one of the guys worked on some 3G phone stuff and was quite impressed that it was even possible! I showed off the browser, hitting a few sites, and apart from having to hit enter a few times on some links, it worked very well. If barfed when I went to www.taptu.mobi, searched for some music and tried to play a sample, crashing android (but not the Z), the red dot reappeared, then android screen came back and it worked again.

I had to put my laptop into ad-hoc mode and use it as a gateway to the corporate lan, as I didn't get wpa wifi to work.

I totally forgot about updating my RotateView to m5-rc14/rc15. Just uploaded to my blog.

o Android Zaurus: RotateView for Android SDK m5-rc14/rc15

Eventhough I made some improvement in double buffer handling of frame buffer driver, still rotating display eats a lot of CPU power. A lot slower than portrait view.

Have fun.

thanks for that. it's odd that android doesn't have the intelligence to handle rotated frame buffers, surely by now people have realised that hard-wired display resolutions is just stupid (I'm looking at you, PalmOS and Microsoft PocketPC!)
