Title:  Enter Brand New Google Nexus 7 16GB Giveaway

This is your chance to enter to win one of the brand new Google Nexus 7 (16GB) tablets that was just announced on July 24th and they began taking orders on July 30th.  This tablet which has the best specs currently on the tablet market includes a 7.02” screen which has a 1920×1200 HD resolution which is an incredible 323 PPI.

Dual cameras now with a 1.2MP front facing and 5MP rear facing camera, the new Google Nexus 7 boasts up to 9 hours of active use battery life with it’s 3950mAh battery. It also has Qi compatible wireless charging built in.

Audio on the new Google Nexus 7 includes stereo speakers with surround sound, powered by Fraunhofer. The dual band Wi-Fi supports Wireless a/b/g/n but I would have loved to see Wireless a/c support which exists in the newest routers but client devices are still slow to support.

You also get:

  • microUSB
  • SlimPort™ enabled
  • 3.5mm audio
  • Microphone
  • Power and Volume buttons
    • GPS
    • Gyroscope
    • Accelerometer
    • Compass
    • Ambient Light

The New Google Nexus 7 in spec is better than the iPad mini in nearly every way including double the pixel resolution, equal in camera quality, 4x as much built in memory and a vastly superior processor. At a price that is still $100 cheaper than the iPad mini.

See contest rules for details, but if you live outside the U.S. you have a few options, one you can receive $229 cash via Paypal instead of the Google Nexus 7 due to the costs in shipping and limitations in shipping Internationally directly from Google’s site, you could gift it to someone else in the U.S. or if you are willing to pay for shipping I will order the Nexus 7 delivered to me and then ship the device Internationally to you as long as you are covering shipping costs. This will add time to the delivery as it has to ship to me and then ship overseas to you however.

Android ADT Bundle

Android ADT Bundle

This is a great update that Google has come up with for Android Developers, Android Trainers and Android Learners because before this ADT Bundle setting up Android Development Environment was bit tedious job and it was very time consuming too. Many times students asked me the steps to setup the Android Development Environment and every time (for every new batch) we need to setup the Android Development Environment from scratch and I used to tell them following steps :

  1. Download JDK (Java Development Kit), Install it, Set Environment Path
  2. Download Eclipse
  3. Download ADT Plugin for Eclipse
  4. Set the Preferences in Eclipse with Android SDK path
  5. Download the latest Platform Tools and others required but optional stuffs

But now thanks to Google for ADT Bundle which provides everything you need to start developing Android Applications. The ADT Bundle includes :

  1. Eclipse + ADT Plugin (ADT Plugin already installed inside Eclipse)
  2. Android SDK Tools
  3. Android Platform Tools
  4. Latest Android Platform
  5. Latest Android System Image for Emulator

To setup the ADT Bundle you need to follow 2 steps below :

  1. Unpack the ZIP file (named adt-bundle-<os_platform>.zip) and save it to an appropriate location, such as a “Development” directory in your home directory.
  2. Open the adt-bundle-<os_platform>/eclipse/ directory and launch Eclipse.

If you are new to Android Development, I will recommend ADT Bundle to quick start development process. but if wish to go with the existing IDE then you can go with downloading the SDK Tools for Eclipse.

Click on the image above to download the ADT Bundle.
