Huawei MediaPad 7

Bought a Huawei MediaPad 7 with only $1899 and running ICS 4.0.3 (its list price was $3980 when it was first released on Dec 2011) to replace my 1.7 years old Archos 70 IT.

This application allows you to copy large HD movie files into your Archos. The file will be transferred in parts no larger than 4GB in order to be compatible with the storage of the Archos. The HD quality is preserved (no re-encoding!) and the playback is handled seamlessly on the Archos.

Archos 70 IT : My first Andorid device

玩過iphone之後, 就想買部android pad玩下, 可以比較兩者分別之處. 終於係聖誕節時買了部Archos 70 IT $2198.

部機行Cortex A8 1Ghz, capacitive screen. 都夠快, 但係RAM得256MB,同埋個screen真係唔夠靚, 又用唔到手寫 (因為個screen認唔到第二筆, 除非你可以一筆過寫到個中文字啦, 我就唔得喇). 用咗兩個幾月, 部機我都幾滿意, 佢好輕 (300g), 用嚟上網同睇電子書真是一流. 不過android 2.2真係冇ios咁user friendly, 流暢度又差過iphone, 又成日要kill task, 但係可以接受囉, 起碼好過wm 6.5十萬九千倍. 玩到冇嘢好玩仲可以裝個Developer firmware+custom kernel, 重新間過個flash,OC埋個cpu, 簡直係linux geek嘅恩物.

See this for reference but the info is somewhat outdated.

#1. Install Android SDK. There’s some path problem for the 64 bits java with the SDK. I install 32 bits java instead. You can also install Eclipse and ADT if you have time.

#2. Create the Android Virtual Device using the installed SDK Manager
