I am pretty new to opengl es. Recently, I figured out how to create a circle in opengl-es 1.x. I really wnat to create sphere, but I am not really sure how to. Is there any tutorial out there that anyone could point me to?

Would you make a sphere using only triangle_strips, or triangle strips and triangle_fans for the poles?

Also, I am trying to make this for android.

Many thanks in advance.
