self-contained ruby 1.8.7 and gems 1.3.1 on android

i built ruby on the android emulator with saurik's debian image, packaged it up with the requisite libs and installed it on my android adp1 (which is not running debian or any other modifications). i'll create an apk for it shortly.

how do you like the g1 so far?

i don't, really. i'm not a fan of having to flip open the thing every time i want to type something.

the "cupcake" tree of android (which is now merged back into the main line) has a software keyboard that should help with this, but it's broken and doesn't work on the g1 yet. that would at least let you keep the phone closed for quick things, but still let you use it to type longer things.

i'd rather have a phone like the kogan agora.

i guess I'll have a play with a g1 when they hit germany :>

i can live with not having an on screen keyboard as long as the hardware one is useable
