Hi,

Thank you all for helping me. I like to do lots of research before I start design my application.

1. Can the application volume be separately controlled within the application by using the volume key on the side of the phone without impacting the master volume of the phone? Does BREW support this?

2. Can the lighting of the application be controlled separately from the rest of the phone? Does BREW support this?

3. Can the application run when the phone is closed using the external screen (dependent on user setting)? How is this done? Is it device, SDK independent?

4.Some measurement to see what is latency of starting a BREW application (BREW startup and then the application). What tool do you use? Device Logger? What did you get? I just want to have some idea.

Thank you a bunch
:D

Basically all of these are device dependant.
1) older brew phones dont get key events with the side volume keys are pressed.. some of the newer ones might.. i dont know if the volume is dependent or independant of the master volume
2) i dont know of any device that allows control of lighting in brew other than turning on the backlight.
3) a lot of the older phones would exit on closing.. dont know about the newer onese.. even if they dont exit, they might not send any events to brew (to signify that the handset was closed)
4) a stopwatch is probably the simplest tool... brew usually only takes a couple seconds, and your app depends upon how much initialization you do, how big it is, etc.

Thank you.
About external screen, is there any API to control what's to display on SDK2.1? I can't find any.

Secondary display support is only available in BREW 3.0+. :(

Mot E815 has BREW version 2.1.3 but does support secondary display. :)
To Qualcomm: Will most BREW phones support this in the future?

That is dependent on the OEMs, but pre-3.x devices which support secondary display should have a note on the dds (as the e815).
