Low Cost Tablet For School Kids

I am trying to get ideas, specs, suggestions, for a low cost tablet for school kids. This is not to make money, this is for the kids. Our graduation rates from 6th to 12th grade are about 54%. Any suggestions would be helpful as i am not computer literate. So far i'm up to a 7" inch tablet, 2gb, 128 ram?, Wifi, sdslot, head phone, speaker jacks, 8 hr battery life, no camera. Will android alone suffice, or a combo of win ce6. 0 & android? What are the licensing/ fees?

Ideas - App For School

I'm in my final year of computer science, and i get to build anything i want for a project course. The idea should be original, or at least something better then what's available out there. And the app shouldn't take longer than a student can write in about 4 weeks (at most).

At first, i thought "wouldn't an irc client be awesome"? But, sadly, it's been done to death. I'm having problems thinking of ideas. So i figured i'd go online and ask. What should i write to learn android development for school? (I'll have longer than the 4 weeks part to learn android development. I also already know java)

Does It Cost Money To Use Pdanet

I was using pdanet to access internet via my laptop but it seemed to good to be true so i phoned mts and basically said "are you sure this is free?" (I have unlimited data) he told me no. He said they are able to recognize the data is being sent to a different device and you need to subscribe for a certain package that gives you unlimited tethering. Otherwise it costs $8/mb! (When i freaked out since i had already downloaded a bunch he then told me its only after a certain point ''like 60gb or something''. Seemed strange. Now im reading that if you root your android you get free tethering. Im so confused. Can someone clear this up for me please? Is there any way to ensure your not gonna get stuck with a $5000 bill if i decide to try tethering?

Widgets Cost Money

Do certain widgets like weather, and the friends stream cost money to use/have on your home-screens? Cus their constantly updating by using data from the internet, thats what i've heard. In other words, they're not free to use, as i will be getting an htc desire soon with a 3 year contract ( i live in canada and it just came out). Also, does it cost money to upload pics using a facebook app?

Tablet Emulator Creation

Been exploring building a tablet based app. Some of the newer (announced) tablets support full hd, 1366x768, up to a 15. 6" touchscreen (vega0). I've been trying to create an emulator based on these specs but i just hangs on launch. Creates fine, but doesn't launch.

Tablet For Media, Viewing Videos

I'm looking for a tablet primarily for media, viewing videos, slowing off pictures, and reading websites, youtube, etc. The ability to read pdfs would be nice also. I'll probably move files to this using a minimicrowhatever sd card so the ability to accept 16/32 or larger would be great. I'd really like to avoid having to root the device unless i really have to.

Here is what i want:
• 7-ish inch screen (bigger would be great, but adds to the cost)
• able to play flv videos (i already have a lot of my videos in this format)
• must be fast enough to play videos smoothly
• must have a sd, micro-sd or other flash card expansion slot
• access to the android app store
• g-sensors
• android 2. 2 or better (for flash player)

Nice to have
• wifi
• high res screen
• usb port
• android 3. 0

Don't want:
• having to buy a cellular contract

Don't need (but don't care):
• camera
• web cam

Ok, here is where it gets a little harder, looking to spend $200-300. I can bump that up if the right device is more expensive.

Any recommendations?

Apad Tablet And Android Market

Ok, so bought one of these "chinese ipad wannabes" on the net and frankly i'm impressed with just about everything about it - at the price - save for one thing. How to convince google to let me register it so i can download apps from the android market. I have a google account, and a gmail address, but i don't know how to specify the device to google to get permission to load apps. It's not a "phone" as such (only has wifi network connection) and doesn't have the android market pre-loaded. Is it possible to set things up to download apps, and if so, is there an idiots guide to how to do it available to download. It runs android 2. 1, but the manufacturer keeps his name pretty well concealed.

Craig Cmp738a Tablet - Safety Settings On Web Browser For Youtube

I'm an old disabled vet and i just purchased a new craig cmp738a tablet for my grand daughter. She is a huge justin beiber fan and loves watching his videos on youtube. Before i surprise her and give this tablet to her, i would like to adjust some safety settings on the web browser and youtube. When i tap youtube, then tap for the settings, the safe search filtering is grayed out, thus leaving me unable to change any of these settings. I also get the same thing in the browser settings. I did a search here, but could not find anything. I'm sure it is my inabilities to do a proper search. Cause i'm old and the craig tablet is new. I would certainly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Low End Tablets Under $250

I have been reading reviews for several days and can't find usable information. Regardless of what tablet i look at, there are so many reviews that contradict each other. One person says the device is junk and the next one says it is the best available. I have been looking at mostly low end tablets under $250.

My primary need is for a top notch color ereader that i can also use for internet surfing, email and a notepad hopefully with a spell checker. I want a tablet on which i can install both amazon kindle and barnes and noble nook apps. I started out thinking the velocity micro cruz t301

Would serve my needs, but there are so many contradicting reviews. I have looked at the irobot apad and likewise found nothing but contradictory reviews. And both seem to be locked into an out of date version of android. I have also looked at a few others in the same price range. I think the 4x3 screen format will be better for use as an ereader, but the only thing i have to compare to is my droid r2d2 phone with ridiculous tiny print. I have no need for using the tablet to watch video or listen to music or play games.

I have read some comments that the cruz can be "rooted" in order to be able to install more apps than their limited selection. What does that involve, and is it necessary? Like i said, i will install the kindle and nook apps, and a better web browser like firefox mobile.

Can anyone give me some guidance here?

Adc2 Low Volume Of Judges

I have three apps in adc2 and so far have seen a total of 63 users run them. There seems to be a very low number of judges participating in adc2. I've seen no publicity at all, no mention in the tech press, no tv coverage, nothing to indicate this contest is running. I'm guessing that the majority of judges at this point are developers. Won't that skew the results? Is this supposed to be a developer or user contest?

Htc Nexus One Low Memory

I woke up this morning to a low memory message on my htc nexus one. It took me to manage applications. I deleted two small apps i'm not using & the message went away.

But now i have questions:

1) should i move certain apps to the sd card? If so, does it matter which ones?

2) running services shows me that all kinds of apps are currently running. That makes me wonder if i am not exiting apps properly. Also, there are several apps "running" that i've never used beyond dling them.

3) this has been bothering me for awhile and is completely unrelated to today's issue. Is there any way to add a person to my contacts from scratch? I can dl my fb etc contacts. I can add people once i enter their phone number. But i cannot just add someone to add someone. At least, that is, that every logical attempt to do so has failed.

I feel like such a novice because i haven't had time to sit down to learn this phone. Thanks in advance for your help.

Test Low Power Condition On Droid

I wondered if anyone had any ideas about how to simulate low power conditions on android (ie the pop-up notification that occurs) on the g1, say.

The adb am command lets you broadcast intents but, i think, maybe not system ones. Anyway, code.

Opengl Application - Reflection Or Low Level

I need to hook opengl api. As an example i have a simple workable opengl android application which uses "renderer" interface. Three callback are implemented as usual:

- Onsurfacecreated
- Onsurfacechanged
- Ondrawframe

How can i "hook" those callbacks so every place the application implements the original "renderer" it first calls my code from where i can call the original callback etc. That is useful when no direct modification of the source code allowed except an injection of additional code (which is easily implemented). I read about reflection in java/android but am failing to understand is it suitable in my case. As a condition i can add any code called 'before' the original but cannot modify the original code.

Low Battery Temperature - Samsung Galaxy S2

Basically, today i had the yellow triangle with the flashing thermometer notification on my phone when i tried to charge it. So, having snooped around, i found that a lot of people have also encountered this problem. I read about some solutions (alcohol and bending the usb port) and so, tried them out. My galaxy s2 now charges again, but every few minutes it will come up with the 'charging paused. Battery temperature too high or too low. ' notification.

I have checked the battery temperature (using *#*#4636#*#*) and it quotes that i have a -7c temperature. This seems exceptionally low and i was wondering if there was a way to boost the temperature back to a normal one. Note: i took the battery out for about 15 minutes and when i put it back in and turned it on, the battery temperature showed 23-5c, but then after a few minutes it will revert back to -7c.
