what the activity role, is it presenter or view

i still dont get the exact difference between presenter and view.

in the video at "time 2:10"you state that the presenter is the activity but yet in your resouces http://konmik.com/post/introduction_to_model_view_presenter_on_android/ say that activity is the view , and i believe that activity is much closer to activity than any thing else. it is viewing the data .

In this course, the Activity is the Presenter.

There is another version of MVP that separates the Activity and the Presenter.

See this article for more explanation: MVP Design Pattern

The activity is the presenter and the layout is the view
