Back from Android Developer Lab

I had a good day at the Android Developer Lab. It was pretty freeform with a short presentation, lunch and then diving right into device testing. We got our hands on:

  • Motorola Droid
  • HTC Tattoo
  • LG Eve
  • Samsung Behold II

I concentrated on the Tattoo and Droid because of their non-standard screen resolutions. The Reader Widgets worked with only minor alignment issues on the large widget on the Tattoo. A fix is on its way. PubCrawler’s geolocation didn’t work on the Droid. Instead of Google Gears it uses HTML5 (more thoughts on that later). However, I managed to upload a fix there and then. It seems that the Droid is fussier than the iPhone when it comes to HTML5. More impressions of the phones and the day are coming soon.
