Maylong Universe: $100 Android Tablet Unboxing & Hands-On [VIDEO]

Monday 15th of November 2010 /
The Maylong M-150 Universe is a 7-inch Android Tablet that I purchased from Yup… that’s right: a 7-inch Android Tablet that I purchased from Walgreen’s and only for $100. Obviously for $100 and without any type of contract, you would assume you’re getting a total hunk of steaming bot grease- but after an initial toying with the Maylong Universe I was pleasantly surprised.Let’s get some of the obviously bad stuff out of the way:It runs Android 1.6It has a resistive and not capacitive screen. You CAN use your fingers but the tablet works much better with the stylus that comes in the boxIt does NOT have Android Market but instead a custom market developed by Maylong so the selection is pretty smallIt doesn’t have much built in memory so you’ll need to insert a MicroSD card to do anything significant from a media, apps and games standpointThat being said, my first thoughts of the Maylong Universe were that for only $100 and no strings attached, this thing is impressive. It might not be something I would suggest people buy, but it

View photos from my camera on an Android tablet - now I'm confused

Friday 05th of April 2013 /
Okay, here's the scoop: I want to view the photos I've taken while traveling. I was thinking of an Android-based tablet for this, then a converter of some kind that would which allow me to hook up a SD card reader to the tablet, then view the images on the tablet from my memory card. I may want to futher do some editing of the images, and perhaps do a 'save as' to the tablet with some of the images. I'm looking at several tablets, including the Acer Iconia A200 or A210, which both have USB 2.0 ports on them so I wouldn't need a converter to hook up my card reader. In an earlier post of mine I was told that I can do what I want using an Android tablet (assuming it's not one that operates entirely in the 'cloud' like the Chromebook.)However, people at two computer stores have warned me against trying to use an Android tablet to view my photos. I gather (from them) that either the Android operating system won't allow it, or the connections won't allow it, or the Android system may have been messed with by whoever built the darn thing, so again, it won't read a memory card with photos on

usb - Use an android tablet as a wacom drawing tablet for a PC?

Wednesday 06th of March 2013 /
Since a nice wacom tablet is a bit pricey, especial for someone like me who doesn't do much graphic editing, I was wondering if it is possible to use an tablet like the Nexus 7 as a wacom drawing tablet when you connect it to a linux computer?I did a bit of searching, however most of the info I found is for using a wacom tablet on an android tablet. I've never used a wacom device, however I have been doing some graphic editing in Gimp, and think it would be much easier than just using a mouse. And since I have a Nexus 7, it seemed like the logical place to start. You would have to use the Nexus as a usb peripheral for the computer, and I don't know if it is possible to transmit the touch screen coordinates to the PC. So if anyone can point me in the rite direction, I'd appreciate it!

How to play DVD ISO/IFO image on Android tablet via Mac OS X

Taking Notes with Antipaper Notes on Your Android Tablet - Android Authority

Monday 05th of December 2011 /
If you happen to use your Android tablet computer for something productive and not just watching streaming movies, then a handwriting application is practically a must-have utility. Such programs allow you to take down notes with just a stylus or the tip of your finger. In terms of simply writing out words, typing may be a much faster process. However on a typical word processor application, you can’t easily make quick illustrations and other marks like directional arrows or circles.Antipaper Notes is a good example of this kind of app as it features some really handy document editing and formatting tools. The following are a few quick tips for using this handwriting app.Manage your notebooks.Right after you launch the app, the main screen displays all the notebooks you’ve created in a tile view. This will of course be blank for the first use. Tapping the New notebook icon creates a new document. When you press and hold on the icon of an existing notebook, a pop-up menu appears that gives you options for renaming, sending it via email, or deleting it.Take handwritten notes.As you

Android Tablet Registry Editing

Friday 10th of December 2010 /
I'm new to Android tablets- just bought the Coby Kyros MID7015. Love it so far with exception to the fact that I'm having trouble getting clockwork recovery and google marketplace on it.I'm wondering if there is a way to edit the registry of the device. I'm a skilled modder with cell phones and various electronic devices so is this possible? I've never had an Android device before.*Ahem* I know Android is based on the Linux OS and Registry options are more related to Windows however- I'm more wondering if there is something similar for custom editing/modding.I have yet to come across any program that allows something like registry editing on android tablets which leads me to believe it might not be possible- but I could be wrong. Hopefully I am.If you know how to custom edit the file-system/registry and apps or programs that will do it let me know please.Thank you in advance.
