That's nice. One can try it out on an Android emulator on a PC. Please
post if someone could succeed in trying it out (on phone or using
emulator.)

I'll give it a try with emulator when time permits.

Incidentally, it does not seem to guarantee it will run on any android
phone. Wonder whether Android offers a uniform hardware abstraction on
various phones. Doesn't seem to be so.


Also h/w requirements would perhaps rule out low end devices like Aakash.
