Re: [CODE4LIB] Mobile emulators and sites to search

I don't know nothing 'bout birthing no babies or android apps, but the 
android developer site lists an emulator and virtual machines on the 
page at

So we were wondering,  Is there a mobile emulator for the Android phone you 
would recommend?

Is there a list somewhere of sites that show off Mobile searching well that you 
would recommend?

Hi Jill,

 So we were wondering,  Is there a mobile emulator for the Android phone
 you would recommend?

Yes.  Your best bet is to use the emulator that comes with the Android Software 
Development Kit (SDK).  One of the other code4lib presentations included some 
screenshots showing some of the steps to download that SDK and create and start 
up an emulator instance [1].

 Is there a list somewhere of sites that show off Mobile searching well
 that you would recommend?

I would recommend taking a look at the M-Libraries wiki [2].

There are also some eclectic, but useful, links under the mobile tag in my 
delicious account [3].  The focus is on the development end, but there are some 
links to good mobile interfaces, too.

 Code4Lib folks,
 I was very impressed with the talks at the conference on Mobile Catalog
 searching and what to do a show and tell for my library staff.
 However, Kim Griggs presentation doesn't appear to be up yet...:(  (I
 really liked your presentation!  Others did great too...) And I didn't
 take good enough notes because I was hoping to play that presentation
 to my library folks...
