Re: API Requirements umbrella

I'm missing one:


The Connections API must tell you which kinds of connection(s) are
active: wifi, 3G, 2G, etc.
It might also be useful to let it fire online/offline events when
connections are restored or removed.

Or do you think the existing online/offline events are enough for that
job? Even if you do, it is very useful to know what kind of connection
is active.

For instance, the iPhone gives you a warning when you try to download
very large (10Mb+) applications via 3G, and advises you to make a wifi
connection first. To me this seems to be a practical use case.
