    Very informative. I intend to use the compatibility library to write apps with newer capabilities for older phones.

    The CTIA conferences goes from Oct 10 - Oct 13. The Droid Planet sections are Oct. 11 and 12 (Tues/Wed).

    I don't believe there's a separate registration. You must have at least an exhibit pass though.

    Is this DroidPlanet a separate registration from the registration? Is it a separate hall? i.e. Is it free or do we need to purchase at least an exhibit pass to the CTIA event?

    Are the dates October 13th and 14th? October 11th is a Tuesday. - Thanks!
