I got my Google Android App Inventor invite early this week and had some trouble connecting the Blocks Editor to my Samsung Galaxy S. So I thought I would post some tips for anyone else experiencing similar issues using App Inventor on Ubuntu. Firstly I must say the Galaxy S is a brilliant phone/mobile computer and I have no trouble connecting to it from ubuntu as a mass storage device. I can plug it in and share files between them easily.
The momentum behind Android is amazing. I have been keeping an eye on Androids progress and it is simply staggering. Many of the biggest phone manufacturers such as Motorola, HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson have released Android phones and have many more in the works. Not all the best phones are making it to Australia and some are getting here too slow. Australian carriers are starting to get behind Android and competition to release the best handsets and plans seems to be heating up.
