Re: getting in early... the android apk plan?

  I'm starting to like that idea. I'm not so worried about the download
size, but about the size it needs on the internal flash memory. The
available space there is quite tight for many people and they will be
unhappy/angry if we use like 20MB because we support 10 screen
resolutions in a single .apk. Remember, the .apk itself is also stored
there not only the extracted one.

It could maybe only check for an updated if it was just
installed/updated from the market, do not bypass the update-via-marked
thing too much.

I fear a one-apk-fits-all-screens apk isn't going to work really well
(unless we can manage to make Rockbox not rely on a fixed screen size
that is).

Best regards.
