We've got an android ínside our ride this morning

Lately we've been minding some few renovations inside our ride. When we have just purchased a new sound system inside it, we thought of actually having something to view upon. A mobile theater system so to speak. We usually place our notebook in the dashboard then let our kids watch from the backseat, but too bad, it doesn't have some solid state drive so we're afraid it might get damaged because of some vibrations. Then we just decided to buy an APad, a smaller one and something that would fit rightly on top of our dashboard.


We grabbed a unit of an aPad (MID APad M701 7.0 Inch Touch Screen Android Tablet PC )
because its cheap and its running in Android OS. Android is opensource and there's an android app market installed in it where we can shop for cools apps for free. And for it's purpose as an in-house movie player for our car, it would serve very much beyond our need. I can do my e-book reading (as a colored version of a Kindle), plants vs zombies, social networking, bible reading and many many more while stuck in a traffic jam on my way to the office.

It also works on Globe Tattoo, Smart Bro and Sun Wireless broadband for 3G internet.

Plus free downloadable apps in some android market. I am now currently fishing apps (educational games ) for my kids at http://www.androidzoom.com/ .



Some cool educational apps my husband spotted at androidzoom:
- Kid mode: Kids games + videos
- Pearson Education
- Chicken Preschool 

My little Cassy and David would surely love playing with these games on and off board.


My aPad comes with a leather casing too, extra protection for better portability.



Will post more about new functionalities and adventures with this Android dude in the days to come!
