.tpk supported or not?

Hi,

I have tried reading from local storage using the Samples:
http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=d2d263a280164a039ef0a02e26ee0501
where it says: "With the ArcGIS for Android SDK local data can be a compact cache or tile package (.TPK)"

The sample works great for the provided compact cache example, but it is also supposed to work for .tpk files, right? In the source-code comments, however, it says the following:
"(Tile Packages or .tpk's are not currently supported)." This was written sometime in 2012, probably june.

I have tried reading a .tpk-file I have generated in ArcMap (http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00170000017w000000) but it does not display.

So: Is reading .tpk-files from local storage currently supported or not? If so, could you give me a path-example? (Simply giving the path to the file on the SD does not seem to work).
