Google Talk status/mobile indicator?
anyone having issues w/ google talk not showing the mobile indicator icon (which I assume is the android icon I see on all my friends)? It's not setting my away status either when the screen shuts off.
as a sidenote, does anyone know how google talk works? is it polling/staying connected or is it more a server side push? curious as to its effect on battery life (I'd test, but being a new android user, my first couple weeks is not a good indicative test of battery life =)

Re: Google Talk status/mobile indicator?
I had the same problem where I could not see the mobile indicator. I unchecked the allow video and voice chat option in the talk app in the latest android(ginger bread 2.3.4) and checked the mobile indicator on settings. My friends(who have android device) were able to see that i am on android device
For my friends who are on gmail chat - they have to enable the lab feature where they can see the green robot. Unless they do that, they will not be able to identify that i am on mobile - this is weird though.
I tested it and it works.
