Android applications on UNR Jaunty - Part Deux

Mike uploaded a video of Android applications running natively on Jaunty UNR:



(didn't realize pgo cuts videos, click here to see it)

The applications are very responsive thanks to the accelerated Android drawing engine (and that means they aren't a burden on the CPU either).

The video shows the Android browser working like normal, which points to the next challenge in getting everything working great: piping the services and the filesystem on the host computer through to the Android runtime so apps can take advantage (and be more useful :).

If you have any questions or just want to bug Mike about getting his packaging finished, you can leave a comment on his blog post.

Update: Added link to video

UNR 9.04 is buggied with compiz and netbook-launcher. How are you getting the two to play nice together? That is what I'd like to do. Dell Vostro A90.

This looks pretty cool. Seems like it could provide a faster development process compared to booting up a virtual device from Eclipse. Eclipse integration would actually be pretty sweet!

looks like android (with apps) running on jaunty... not "running android apps on jaunty"

don't get the difference ?
like wine versus vm with ms-windows

not (yet) really exciting...

It must be Karmic. UNR and Compiz seem to be playing nice together again. Just installed and all is fine again.

I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on new computer. It is quite fast. I was hoping that it would recognise my cell phone over Bluetooth, but this is not the case.
