Android :: Google Platform For Robotics - Serial Connection Support

Oct 21, 2010

1) What Android-compatible hardware platforms (boards, like "beagle board") can you recommend for hobby robotics? Where can I see a list of Android-friendly boards with support of serial (or parallel) connections?

We are going to move our Java ME robotics project (http:// www.RoboHobby.com) to Android platform, but what hardware to choose?

2) What can you say about support of serial connection on Android- based phones? Does it work in reality? As I remember, in the Java ME world not all cell phones manufacturers supported serial connections on their J2ME implementations. For example serial connections were supported on some models of Siemens and Sony-Ericson, but they were not supported on Nokia and Sumsung, etc.

What is going on with serial connection support in the Android World? Is this supported in reality? On which cell phones?

3) Is it possible to use on Android devices (boards) not BlueTooth/USB conection, but wired connection, like RS232 "COM" port on PC?

I see funny wordplay - Android as a Google project and Android as a human-like robot. :-)

Android :: 2.1 Bluetooth Serial Connection With Computer

Jul 1, 2010

I thought it would be quite easy to develop a bluetooth application on Android, but it looks like the support is very bad. While pairing works, my Nexus One with Android 2.1 can't connect to the PC. It's the same in Windows and Ubuntu. I used on my Desktop computer, in Windows, Hyperterminal and waited on an incoming bluetooth com-port. I searched already a bit, Maybe this:
http://code.google.com/p/backport-android-bluetooth/
or this library:

Android :: NFC Support On Adroid Platform And Available Devices

Oct 16, 2009

after some internet based research I didn't found helpfull information about NFC support on android. Is there anyone out there who has information about this? I know that there is an open source project called libnfc.org running and also some other stuff from Contactless Data Inc. Since I'm dealing with a very cool NFC app I'm interested in new devices or features which can support that app. Mobile handsets with Android and NFC functionalities would be a very cool thing.

Android :: Which Mobile Platform To Use Creation Of Musicians Support Application?

Sep 22, 2009

I'm a programmer looking to play in the mobile world. The application I'd like to play with would support my musical hobbies. I suspect a mobile phone with a music player could easily be programmed to support a classical musicians practice sessions. Access to media player APIs without the need to open external apps or do clunky things with files.Adequate access to playback API to create specific notes and beat patterns. As a hobby application, this should not require expensive tooling.I can switch to a new phone to use the application. Bonus points for something that easily ports to a netbook.I will admit I new to the world of sexy phones. I currently use an obsolete voice device with text messaging. I won't revealing my current flavor of programming because learning a new platform is just fine.

Android :: Google Support Number For Droid's Sent To Developers From Google?

Jun 23, 2010

A few months ago Google sent top market developers a feww phone (Droid or Nexus).I was one of them and received a Droid.I just now called in to activate the Droid on my Verizon account and was told that it is not activated.They said that the ESN number is tied to a business account and currently active.Verizon said the only thing I can do is to contact Google, who sent me the phone, and work it out with them.The paperwork with the phone came with no numbers or email addresses.I have tried calling the Nexus support line, they could not direct me anywhere. I have tried emailing the automated robots that sent me emails about the phone.Is there anyone at Google that I can contact that would be able to help with this?

Android :: Support For Google Listen

Sep 29, 2010

I'm a BIG fan of Google Listen, until one of their updates just started f**king up everything! I posted my concern on their discussion group (Discussions - listen-discuss | Google Groups), but I'm not sure that official channel is actually answering ANY questions. The replies are more users saying they have the same problem.

Can I get support (or answers) here or should I just stick to their discussion group?

Here are some of my concerns:
I can't fast forward or rewind anymore. If I try to move the timeline the podcast starts over.
A lot of the time I get an error along the line that it can't play the file. So; it no longer plays while streaming. I have to wait until I get a full download.
When I use my bluetooth headset to start/stop a song, it messes with the Music app. I can't disable this option without disabling it for Music.
I'm running their latest version (v1.1.3b) on my Motoroloa Droid FRG22D. I think I saw these issues when I had Android 2.1.

Android :: Does Sprint Support Google Voice Voicemail

Jun 15, 2010

I can't get my EVO to use my google voice as my voicemail. I have everything set up correctly and have my voicemail assigned to google instead of sprint. When I try to activate my google on my phone by dialing the *28 and my number, it either gives my an error code or just rings. Does sprint allow google as your voicemail?

Android :: Google / Carriers / Manufacturer Relationships / Support

Jun 30, 2010

I'm about to dump ATT/IPhone for Sprint/Android (EVO), but one thing has been nagging me and I want to make sure I know my options before jumping (e.g. given these 2 yr contracts).My concern is with ongoing support for my phone after purchase, support in terms of receiving the latest/greatest updates to the Android platform (e.g. within hardware constraints). Who ultimately controls whether a phone gets a release (e.g. Carrier or Manufacturer)?It seems to me the best bet is to go with the Nexus One platform given that is under the control of Google and should be well supported in that respect. However, it seems like it is going to be a hassle and/or costly to go with Nexus One using Sprint. Is there anyway around paying full price for Nexus One and using Sprint as a carrier? Any chance Google has a deal with the carriers to subsidize phones?Plus, I would prefer not to have the blot (e.g. UI modifications, app replacements, etc) added to the phone by Carriers and/or Manufactures (e.g. prefer Android as perceived by Google). Wondering who has the control of UI modifications. Does the Carrier contract with the Manufacturer and have control over what is added and how it is supported (e.g. whether a phone gets a new Android release, etc)? Or does the Manufacturer have the control?And lastly, say I get the EVO and on down the line someone (Manufacturer or Carrier) decides no more updates for the EVO. It sounds like I should be able to root the phone and continue with updates. Without support from Carrier/Manufacturer of course, but is it against the Carriers rules to root a phone?
Also, when rooting a phone, I'm assuming you can not take a release straight from Google and install it. Rather, someone has to implement the release for the target hardware (e.g. build, add any necessary drivers, etc). Are there any gotchas in doing this? Who is the most reliable supplier of these builds? I know that is a pretty broad question and I'll plan on doing additional research in that areas, but if anybody can give me a nudge or share their experience, that would be great.

General :: Why Doesn't Google Support Android Sites

Apr 17, 2013

There are a number of android file hosts such as goo.im, androidfilehost, and lets not forget XDA itself.

These sites are crucial for Android's success, as without them dev support would die. Yet these sites rely on user donations and frequently the site admins own pocket. I donate when I can because of the importance. But the amount they ask for is not much, it wouldn't even matter to Google, and they are the company who should be most concerned about Android.

Is it a conflict of interest thing?

Android :: Google Voice - Data Connection ?

Jun 3, 2010

I've been trying to wrap my head around this and it's probably an obvious answer but why can't I dial out using my GV number unless I have a data connection active? Per Google and from what I can see, no VoIP is being used and it seems to me when I have a data connection and use GV to dial out it just dials a Google number first. I'd think the call would be made to GV, GV would patch the call through to the person being called and pass on the GV caller ID number. So why does the app need to have a data connection to work?

Android :: Google Maps Navigation Without Data Connection

Sep 20, 2010

I use HTC Desire (updated to Froyo) and at home Google Maps Navigation works great and I never worry about the data connection because I have a large data allowance each month. But I'm now in Germany for a few days and I don't really want to pay roaming rates. So, I find that I can of course use the hotel wifi to plot the route.

This can work but most of the time it doesn't. The problem is that the route is not downloaded (at least not completely) until the phone has a GPS fix. Usually this happens after I'm out of range of the wifi signal and so I have no route to navigate. Is there a way of downloading the route without needing the satellite fix to validate it? This would make life so much simpler!

HTC Incredible :: Lacking Support For Google Docs

Sep 8, 2010

Ok, so this is more of an Android thing than Inc, but the two things that I think are still sorely lacking are support for Google Docs, and some form of Google virtual drive (like DropBox). On the Docs front, I realize there's GDocs, but since Google Docs is a Google initiative, it'd be nice to have an official app. And on the storage front, it'd be great to have access to the same storage that I have with picasa, Gmail, and google docs, as a desktop accessible drive, with an android component.Anyone know of any solutions other than GDocs and DropBox to achieve these.

General :: Google MUST Support External Storage

Oct 9, 2012

None of the Google Applications support external storage, Gmail 4.1.2 won't send documents attached from an external sd card, Play Movies & TV won't allow you to specify a external card as a storage location, pinned Google Drive documents can't be stored on an external card, Play Music sucks up internal memory. Try sending an attachment using Gmail from a Motorola Xoom, a "Google Experience Device".

How do we get Google to support this? Most other email applications support it, but as a Google Apps Enterprise user I want and expect the native Android email application to work.I use external storage on a Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S3, Razr Maxx and Transformer Prime.
