Makes sense. Androids can detect magnetic fields and metal. Why not a hand?
Or a inward facing holster?
I would love to put it in the holster and it auto turn off the screen. With my BB, key presses were a concern because it was a leather case, but with the hard plastic I dont know if I even need it to lock.
I would also love this app. Should be easy to program, worked great on a magnetized holster with my bb
This is different than something you can simply program your phone to do. The blackberry's ability to wake upon exiting a holster and sleep upon entering one was due to hardware in the phone, along with software... Not just software alone. The holster has a magnet in a certain location that pertains to how the phone sits in the holster. Whenever the small magnet was against this spot on the phone, the phone would sleep or wake depending on whether it was being put against the magnet or being taken away from it. But, in summary, this is hardware that was allowing for this.
To my knowledge, there is not this ability (using a magnet on a certain location on your phone) built into any Android phone. I could certainly be wrong, but as I said, to my knowledge, I dont know of any.
Now, whether this could be done via use of the proximity sensor might certainly be a different story. But the magnet route = no go
