Wanted: mobile phone "essentials" demo\tutorial

Postby NEILP » Thu Nov 29, 2007 5:08 am

Did I miss something at the Google Android site?

Surely a demotutorial with sample code, that does the things that mobile phones do, is a must. Then we can build on that code to do our clever bits rather than spend ages trying to figure how to get Android to implement essential mobile phone functionality.

Here's my wish list for the demo...

Phone Call In:
- hear the call ring
- answer the call
- display call details, especially if its a text message
- extract and store data from the call, and restore later; e.g. caller number, text message

Phone Call Out:
- provide the number to be called, from the SQL database, human input or other source (e.g. cut and paste or click from a website)
- display the number
- attach content to the number, e.g. a text message
- dial the number, automatically or under user control

Interact with websites:
- browse the web
- navigate links by using the mobile phone's buttons
- extract data from a website, display and store it
- addeditupdate data on the website

When I've learned programming languages in the past, the most valuable thing has been a manual that walks me through a real world application. Here's hoping with Android. I haven't got time to muck around but if I can tweak and cut and paste and hit the ground running I might give the Android Challenge a go.

Hello NEILP,

as the day unfortunately has just 24h hours, I cannot do all that at once :!:

:idea: You can find many things you mentioned already as a tutorial.
Check back from time to time, to see if there once again something done :)

Regards,
