    Hello
    I have seen the forums debating between the two phones
    galaxy ace or htc wildfire s

    But I started a new thread to get advice from the point of view of development.
    I am a beginner adobe air developer and I need a android phone for testing - but at a cheap cost.

    Looking to buy one of these... so need your advice...

    Galaxy Ace:

    So, both are quite the same. Go for one you like the most.

    Yup, unless you want to create games for an old Nokia or SE with Symbian :D
    No, really, it will depend on what type of games you want. I'd suggest you to check some games @android market. What games are more popular and so on, that will help you to decide where to start. There are programs designed for creating games also. Take a look at those too.

    Are those sort of programs called "engines"?
    I mean.... so what I have learnt is android is java based? So how and which other languages would you use?
