I have an application that I just would like to use in portrait mode, so I have defined
android:screenOrientation="portrait" in the manifest XML. This works OK for the HTC Magic phone (and prevents orientation changes on other phones as well).
But I have a problem with the HTC G1 phone as I open the hardware QWERTY keyboard (not the virtual keyboard). My activity stays in portrait mode, but it seems to get restarted and loses all its states. This does not happen with the HTC Hero version.
My application is quite big, so I don't want it to restart and lose all its states when the keyboard is opened. How can I prevent that?
