Android Device

On Wednesday, I will be turning over the Android device to the lab for your testing. I will be removing the SIM (so please put in a Globe/Smart prepaid SIM – couldn’t get Sun SIM to work). Unfortunately, this device has a defective wifi radio – which will render our app testing a bit more expensive considering that we need to connect to the internet via 3G. Yeah, can’t complain since this is free. 🙂 I am still trying to procure another one for the lab – just waiting for Smart to make the HTC Magic available as prepaid.

The good thing, though, is that you can connect it to Eclipse and use it to transfer and test your apps directly on the phone instead of the emulator. I have tested this on Linux (Crunchbang Linux on VMWare Fusion on Mac), so if you are using Windows, you are on your own.

So good luck and have fun, guys!

PS. Do not take the device outside the lab without my consent.
