Android compatibility


#1

Hello,

I was testing android sdk for a motorola droid and i was wondering if applications made with this sdk will be compatible with others android phones (including phones without powervr chipset).

Thanking you in advance,

Martin

Hi,

 

Applications made with our Android SDK should be compatible with other android phones assuming they have the same CPU architecture. This also includes phones that don't contain any POWERVR graphics IP such as the Nexus One*.

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

 

* Given as an example as I know the SDK runs fine on it.

Thanks a lot for your answer, is there a lot of CPU architectures used in Android phones?

At the moment there are only ARM-based phones on the market but in the future there will also be X86-based ones.
