Well technically, they're both major version 5.3 ... so it's confusing, but it does make sense, somehow. After the horrible experience with 5.3.6, I fear that 5.3.7 is the same crap, for a different device. No way -- I'm not installing it.

Hehe... when will it be released?

I'm not a Java fanatic, and I'm not afraid of C++ - but I strongly dislike it. The way that it does OO just feels... wrong. (not to mention all the other stuff which brings productivity to a screeching halt. In C++, like 75% of the time is spent with useless low-level stuff like taking care of memory management yourself.)

[ BTW, take a look at Scala - I'm currently learning it because it's used in the project I'm now working in. Extremely interesting and powerful language. Kinda like the evolution of Java/C#, plus the strengths of functional programming, and much more. ]

I'd personally be interested in Android on the Kindles. It must be possible, somehow...

Well I asked Amazon if there will be any updates for kindle touch. Here is there answer dated 14 iun 2013:
"Hello,
I want to let you know that our Specialist are currently working on a new software update to the Kindle Touch.
However, at this time, we're unable to determine exactly when the new update will be released.
Please be assured that when the updates are released, this will be posted in our website.
You can also check and download the latest Kindle software update to your computer and transfer it to your Kindle using a USB cable.
For instructions on how to manually update the software, visit:
http://www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates
I hope this helps. Thanks for using Kindle.
Best regards,
Sue T."

@onlyra: They don't seem to be working on it, they have released it a few hours ago.

...Which is why we were talking about it in the posts right above yours.

Android has been reported as being on its deathbed, at least by some people in the industry.
With Tizen the leading contender for its replacement.
I have a thread/post on the subject somewhere here.

In all of my "talking up" Tizen, there is one thing I haven't mentioned:

Tizen supports its own "App Store" -
Where the applications that people write (using the application build system provided) may be either "For Free" or "For Pay".

Which means a K-Tizen implementation would be replacing the Amazon App Store with something that can put money in the pockets of application developers.
I'll be honest, that attracts the attention of someone like myself once a month when the server bills come due. (I refuse to clutter my Kindle support sites with ads.)

The system uses three levels of "Signing Certificates" -
Each with different (deeper) levels of access to the system.
(I.E: It handles cell 'phone and DRM security issues also.)

Tizen manages the signing process -
And also does the "unit testing" of applications on their auto-builders.
But once an application is signed - it will run on any Tizen device.

Not that I think Silver18 would want to be paid for Komic, or see it running on cell 'phones, tablets, car information systems, etc.

In case you weren't aware, the best place (at least that I've ever come across) for information/help on playing with Android is over at xda-developers.
(yes originally it was simply for HTC/XDA (XDA was just HTC rebadged by O2) phones but it's been branching out for ages and covers so much (mainly phone related)

They managed to get it onto the HTC Diamond (which was a windows phone) I tried it, completely unusable due to the lag, but they managed it. Also onto several other windows phones.

You might also be able to get help from Modaco and/or CyanogenMod team.

Just in case that is of any help ixtab.
(also assuming you were wanting to have a look at it yourself or even modify your smartphone (if you have one))

@KNC I hadn't heard anything like that about Android, I'd be interested to read up on it. Especially as they are still taking more and more of the market share from crApple if the figures I've seen are correct. Plus what with an Android based games console having recently been released (I'm interested as to how that one pans out) it would appear far from on it's deathbed to me, plus there are new phones being added to their line up all the time. (Droid Maxx with 2 others announced by Motorola today as an example)

Only rumors, but then, most of the consumer world lives on rumors.

Komic, outside the Kindle sandbox, it's such a bad app!
I wouldn't download it!

FroYo
Gingerbread
Honeycomb
Ice Cream Sandwhich

So what?
I have a watch that runs PalmOS.
(or at least it did until the battery died of old age)

I was meaning 2 or 3 watches which have either just been released or will be released in the near future.

And catch up a bazzilion posts.

Thanks. That is all.

Phooey on the medications, let's take another one of these "Road Trips" (my dogs will help out).

Welcome back from "real life".

If it helps, I kind of gave up on the 'catching up' front, personally... I went maybe a good dozen pages back, and then... pfffft ^^.
