I didn't know there was still a proprietary version of the SDK, and that
does suck a bit. The Android on Freerunner stuff builds the open bits.
Google gears library is missing, I think only because nobody's ported it

That said, I had no problem hooking up the mail client to my SMTP server. No
google account needed.

On bluetooth - that's not perfect in android on FR by a long way. I could
create a pairing with my BT headset, an the button on it worked for
answering calls, but no audio was routed over it.

To make a version for Neo Freerunner, you'll need to use the Koolu
repository as well, to get the FR specific changes they're doing. I'm not
saying it's going to be easy...
