So what happens when a service provider (i.e. Verizon) feverishly releases multiple Android-powered devices without the resources or competence to properly support them?
How can an organization of their size and depth not conduct the due diligence to realize that marketing, selling, and supporting Android devices is not the same as selling new BlackBerry 8330s?
If we, as Android owners, were content with the shit OS that RIM offers, we would all be punching away on archaic devices with no HTML support.
Instead, we're punching away on state-of-the-art devices with no vendor support. I am not sure which is worse.
I predict a brewing storm for Verizon and, for that matter, Sprint and others who lackadaisically and sluggishly provide software and hardware support for these devices. Many Android devices are running 1GHz processors because we end users are not inherently patient and we like snappiness. Too bad the snappiness only exists in our phones.
Does anyone know of any applications that would easily allow me to follow the Masters? I looked for some golf apps and there didn't look like there was anything useful. I have SportsTap, but am unsure how good that will work out.
Google had a couple presentations at GDC 2010. Is there any chance that PowerPoint, KeyNote or PDF versions of the presentations could be posted somewhere on the Android Development website? I bet a lot of work went into those presentations. I know they contain lots of valuable information. It makes sense to make that information available to all Android developers.
I'm brand new to the Android world and, in fact, don't even have a phone yet. However, I'll be picking up the LG Optimus S w/Sprint in the next day or so. All my information (email, calendar, contacts, notes, etc) are all managed in Outlook (stand alone, not Exchange). I've been told that there's no way to sync directly from Outlook to an Android phone so I'm looking for the cheapest way to accomplish that and have good results.
My emails come through Gmail so that part is already done. I use Google's Calendar Sync program so my calendar is already in my Gmail account so that is also done. The contacts and notes are only in Outlook so that's where my main question lies..........
Since I'm a huge baseball nut, I've used this app quite a bit. I did the manual Froyo push to my phone and now I can't find it in the Market. Is anyone else experiencing this? I need to continue to see how bad the Cubs are doing.
FIFA 2010 by EA is out. I haven't tried it, but the pictures look promising. While I am not super excited for the game itself, I am excited for what this means regarding EA's future. I think this means we will see other 3D sports games by EA, like Madden!
I started using Exchange and a Windows Mobile device in 2003 which means I have suffered through that OS for over 7 years!! Now I have purchased the Evo, and must say I love the way it works except... It does not work well with Exchange. It appears that it will not sync calendar events (I get an error every time i try to sync). I called Sprint and they say it is a known issue and have no eta on a fix. It also does not have Task sync. I have tried TouchDown, but it appears it puts all your data in the TouchDown program and it is not accessible form the rest of the phone. What is the value of that?
I want to write an Android remote control application that allows people to navigate back and forth on a PowerPoint slideshow presentation in Microsoft Office (preferably 2007/2010) on my PC. In this case, I have to make a small PowerPoint navigation client on the Android, and also I have create a PC server to access Microsoft Office PowerPoint and manipulate its slideshow. I know it is possible for a java application to gain access to Microsoft Office PowerPoint's slideshow. Some applications for Android are already made (Gmote 2.0 and such) and they can be used to navigate PowerPoint slideshows.Is there any extension or any library that can be used to gain access to Microsoft Office PowerPoint?
Well we just migrated our Exchange server from 2007 to 2010 and I cannot for the life of me get the Incredible to sync up to it.. I can enter all the info and it works (verifies account), but always "Fails to create account"... If anyone has insight, would be greatly appreciated! I can make whatever tweaks needed as I have full access to the phone and server.. It was working perfect on 2007
I'm using W7 Ultimate x64 and had no issues with the latest version of HTC Sync and Outlook 2007 x86 - all fine and dandy.
Upgraded last night to Office 2010 x64 and now Sync won't see my Desire - any reasons for this? I've not tried another USB port as yet so will do so later this evening but thought I'd see if anyone else has got it working.
This is the full retail Office 2010, not the beta/technical preview btw.
I just put 2.1 on my Eris and pretty much everything is fine but I bought mlb at bat for 1.5 and its not In the market. I understand the copyright thing but mabee someone has a link to download. Need it, got to have it!
Droid frg22d update stops syncing with exchange 2010 - Verizon Wireless Community. Apparently I'm not the only one with elevated frustration. Short version of the story:
- Spent hours on the phone w/Moto & Verizon explaining that my OG Droid will no longer connect to ActiveSync w/ Exchange 2010 SP1.
- Verizon & Moto both admit problem.
- Moto says they're working on it. Verizon says to pay $44.95 a month and it will work.
- If I hear one more "supervisor" tell me that it's my problem, and to either pay more, or use TouchDown ($20 app that sucks by the way) I am going to start a class action. Yes, I have the money, and no, I'm not bluffing.
- Please post your woes on this forum as I am starting a case # with the BBB on this matter and I need as much ammo. as possible.
I'm trying to run HTC Sync to share my contacts from outlook 2010 (beta) to the phone, yet HTC Sync tells me there are no contacts there. Is there any way to sync between the 2, or do I need to manually add them?
Me and my manager have an HTC desire HD, I use gmail for everything but my manager uses outlook 2010 to manage all his events. He's tried syncing with htc sync 3 on his laptop but this has put all his events on his phone one hour later than they should be. Also we have tried to clear the calendar data using settings>applications>calendar>clear data but its not deleting all the events .
During the Q & A for the N1 phone, they said that in a future release Android will natively support apps installed to the SD card! I know this has been a matter of importance to many of us, so I was glad to hear it was in the works. Hopefully in 2.2 or 2.1.1, sometime this year?!
Has anyone had any issues syncing 2010 microsoft outlook calendars on their droid incredible? When I first set it up it was super easy and had no issues (i was on 2007). Then my work computer got upgraded to 2010 and it worked for a bit and now the calendar won't sync correctly. Contacts and emails have no issues. I get an error message on my calendar though and only certain appointments sync. I tried to delete the account and reset it but each time I did that it double up appointments in my work computer outlook and still didn't get all appointments on my phone. Now I am afraid to try that again since it is a pain to delete all the duplicates.
We just upgraded to Exchange 2010 at work, and all our other phones work just fine. Evo, iphones, other Droid models, so it's not the server. This one phone is the only one we have that is a Eris and we can't get it to sync contacts. I have tried to clear the calendar storage, nothing, redid the account, nothing. It gets email and contacts just not the calendar and has the ! next to the sync circle. If anyone can please tell me how to resolve this it would be great. Been searching for 2 days trying to figure it out.
I've got a Windows 7 laptop with Outlook 2010 beta on it. Loving 2010, but HTC Sync doesn't seem to want to work with it. I've asked HTC, and they say it don't work with 2010. If anybody knows a way of making it work with 2010. Alternatively, I'm considering buying Outlook 2007 to use instead. Does HTC Sync work with Outlook 2007? I want to sync contacts, calendars, and anything else it might sync!
