    Looking at the screen res of 800x480 and the 96 dpi with no Exif and the top icons, this screenshots must have been taken from HTC Desire HD with Android SDK

    And knowing the Android API's I would very much believe the reason they did not release it is because of HTC's lack of DRM when it comes to media. You need to download and install Samsung's 3rd party add on to get that. Samsung Electronics from (innovator.samsungmobile.com)

    Its not, there is no build in DRM API's in Android prior to 2.4
    Samsung has included special API's for their hand sets to do this, its the same ones that was included from 2.4 onwards in stock Android.

    I am willing to bet that if you install Android 2.4 and t1 you will have no problems on any device.

    They never said it's not working. They said they are still working and testing it. Also they previously had security issues and that's why it's not released yet. That is where DRM comes in.

    Same question - as far as I know 2.4 will be ice cream sandwich - or that is what the rumours say. ICS could be numbered Android 4 ...

    I'm just angry okay. At the end of the day there is an app that will work on all devices but they are not releasing it. Been since April.

    Who the hell is going to pirate content with such a small.resolution when you could record it off your dstv proper or just download it.

    So frustrating

    yes 2.4 or 4.0 wil be ics
    reason i ask is i can put a custom rom with 2.3.4 and try if the app works on a htc desire

    If you say is true, why exclude the 10.1 and 10.1v. Surely they would have the same drm technology as the s2 s1 and tab 7inch?

    From the discussions on Android dev list the 90+ Samsung unique API's will only go into 2.4 ICS

    I dont know if there is another way to get the same API's to work on other vendors phones but I am sure there should be, as Netflix and other media app's got support but only after the initial Samsung releases.

    I don't think its their issue. Dstv said April and 5 months later 3 devices supported. Like I said in the previous message, why only those Samsung android devices?

    I'm probably not that skilled when it comes to this, I'm sure there are many like us who are tired of waiting.

    Samsung has unveiled some 90 new APIs to its implementation of Android, including Version 3.0, the tablet version of Google's mobile operating system. The additions, available on its smartphones and tablets, include a range of security and management features that are being used by third-party applications such as SAP's Sybase Afaria mobile management software.

    Besides Sybase, other vendors supporting the new APIs on Samsung's new Galaxy S II smartphone, running Android 2.3, and the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, with Android 3.0, are Sybase parent SAP, Calgary Scientific, Cisco Systems, Citrix, and Samsung SDS, the company's IT arm. The applications include security, virtualization, unified communications, health care, and messaging. The new Samsung code will be available as a ROM upgrade for a range of existing products.

    The announcement was made this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

    Sybase Afaria Advanced Enterprise Security (AES) is a mobile device management and security application targeted at the enterprise. AES for Samsung will be available in the first half of 2011 and more information is available from Sybase online.

    "We've been working with Samsung for 9 months," says James Naftel, Afaria product manager at Sybase. "Over and beyond what Android 3.0 provides, Samsung has added about 90 APIs that you won't find on any other Android device, including [APIs] for the camera, microphone, Bluetooth, strong password controls, and on-device encryption."

    One example of the impact is in password control. Under previous Android versions, IT could set a requirement for strong passwords, but users could disable this, Naftel says. The new Samsung APIs now let IT, through Afaria, control e-mail settings and security, password policies and other features.

    "Android security today is in the end user's hands," Naftel says. "Users are prompted by, 'Do you want to allow x, y or z?' But most users aren't equipped for these [questions]. Now, with the Samsung APIs, we can lock down Android apps. In the future, we'll be able to do black/white listing of apps on devices. There's lots of ways to grow with what they've done/added."

    The new APIs and the out-of-the-box support from key vendors will mean that a range of applications will work seamlessly with Samsung's new flagship smartphone, the just announced Galaxy S II. Among them: a comprehensive implementation of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to sync e-mail, calendar, contacts and tasks with corporate Exchange Server; on-device encryption; Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, creating a persistent encrypted network link for mobile clients; Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, for online conferencing with a mobile device; Cisco Mobile for Android, for calling via a Wi-Fi connection; and Sybase Afaria AES for mobile device and mobile security management.
    Still trying to get the exact list of API's but I am sure its part of this range.
