Yes, RhoElements on the ET1 (Android) will be Moto Webkit not the stock webkit. There are two main reasons for this:
- Secondly, we want to ensure that when you write an application for a Motorola Windows Mobile device, it will run exactly the same on a Motorola Windows CE device and a Motorola Android device. The only way we could guaranty this was to put exactly the same code on all device types.
There are other reasons, for example we also ported our powerful SVG application engine that allows for sexy graphical UIs that are both processor and memory efficient, but the two points I mention above are key fr the RhoElements message for a truly consistent platform and our commitment to the developer community.
Yes, i got it. The second reason is a must and the first one is for better.
So, when will Rhoelements can support normal Android phone not only ET1?
Unfortunately we do not have a committed date yet for when we will support non-moto devices. Sorry. However in the mean time, if you want to add enterprise features to a non-Motorola device, why not stroll on over to rhomobile.com and take a look at the Rhodes product, this might help you out (btw, we recently acquired Rhomobile). Right now it makes use of the stock browser of whatever you are running on, but it will add many of the enterprise capabilities and ultimately you will see the two products start to merge and compliment each others functionality.
I'll try Rhodes first.
What will happen with the Rhomobile product.
Will it disappear overtime or will it continue to exist, potentionally under another form,....
