yes


Of course I already thinking how to manage this. Any help is appreciated- please PM me.
And- if somebody of you know special people for this job you can also tell me or even better: ask them if they would be interested!
Of course we will decide altogether about the dev but since not everybody will know suitable people the list will not be very long I assume.

20 bucks from me!

How about Dexter? He is very good with milestone, he can probably add milestone's goodies to XT720 as well.

I'm in (50$)

That is 100% guaranteed...under these conditions...the person who takes the contract/offer has a reputation/experience that is proven and are reliable and dedicated...I.e. don't want to give money to someone who thinks this will be a great learning experience for them.

And as a preference would like to see a development time line with certain end date and some offering of support..

Of course these are just mere points that a decent person would adhere too naturally, I like to think...but I like to express this because if I have doubts, I wont give hard earned money (i dont work hard...i just dont like work, which makes it hard) to anyone...like I did to Motorola LOL.

That are good and quite understandable points. Of course we are still not at this point- but for me a kind of contract is a total necessity.

Lets wait a couple of days and than do a kind of brainstorming here- how much money do we need at least, how do we pay the dev- who shall it be- who will be the financier- how much time do we want to give the dev/ what is a realistic timeline- what exactly do we expect as result... and so on...okay?

Your English is good, and yes, that would be an excellent news read.

Coincidently, I was reading some CES stories, in particular a Motorola one. In this story, the device they were showing "...will initially be released with Android 2.2, but Motorola promises to release android 2.3 at a later date."

The first thing I thought of was the XT720.
