Android on the HTC Vogue

As many of you know, the Vogue can run Android quite nicely with support for sending/reciving SMS, incoming and outgoing calls, GPRS, touch screen, etc thanks to dzo over at Xda-Developers. See his posts and materials here: http://it029000.massey.ac.nz/vogue/.

Several folks from freenode/#android have access to this device, myself included, and have been developing tools and applications to further explore the platform on real hardware. Those tools are being hosted at the android-random project page. There is a simple file manager (Glance), a much-improved threaded text messaging app (Messages), and perhaps most importantly of all a RemoteLogcat tool that allows us to observe the running devices logcat (normally accessible through adb logcat) by piping it to a server on the public Internet.

Recently, I created an emulator skin that can be used to simulate this device's resolution during development. Simply download vogue-skin.tar and unpack it into $ANDROID_SDK/tools/lib/images/skins along with the other default skins. Then fire up the emulator as:

$ emulator -skin vogue

The skin has no decorations, just a simple 240x320px layout, but this should give you a pretty good idea how different Android can be on this device.
