Great to hear that squeak on android is moving forward :-)

I got stuck with the squeak-android-vm Project because i could not get
Sockets/ Networking to work:

Does networking have a priority in your port?

Anyone interested in supporting the networking-part?

Tried your port on Samsung Galaxy S I9000 with Android 2.2 but got
only a blank/ black screen. But this is no tablet, it's a cell-phone

> Information provided in the Wiki pages of the Google Code project for
