No USB cable for your WSL Xvision / Advent Vega?

That was the case for me when I got my new Android tablet. No cable was delivered with the tablet. And the USB port on the tablet is the same format as you find on a PC, a USB A type female. I checked several stores here in Tokyo to find a cable, but couldn’t find a male to male USB cable. What I could find where cables to connect 2 PC’s with USB, but they are with an additional

WSL Xvision / Advent Vega – Docking station

The first accessory I bought for my Xvision tablet was a docking station. It gives the tablet a secure stand on your desktop as a charging station. And it gives easier access to the USB port, HDMI output and speakers output. In addition it extends the USB to 3 ports. Right now, due to a limit of Android, it supports only 1 USB memory device, but you can connect a keyboard and mouse to the other ports. On MoDaCo you

Rubber Coating Shell Jacket & Protection Film

Today I saw a nice 2 set package at Yodobashi camera. And it was cheap, only 1980 Yen (~17 Euro) for the shell and a screen protector from ray-out. I chose the RT-HX06C3/R which is red, but they have black ones as well. The shell was easy to mount, fits nice to the Desire. But of course it makes the phone thicker. The spares for volume keys, USB and On/Off button are a too big, this could be done better.

Phonecard Express – a solution to solve the Softbank limitations on international phone numbers

Softbank Japan is a headache when it comes to the handling of international numbers. While in all countries I know a “+” in front of a phone number is automatically corrected, Softbank Japan is not able to do this. A “+1” for a call to USA or a “+81” for a local call is not working. You end up with a nice Japanese voice telling you that the number you have dialed is incorrect.

Softbank Japan S!Mail

Ok, here we go with the another secret of Softbank. On their “stupid” Japanese phones they have what Japanese people like most. The S!Mail. Comparable with the SMS or MMS technology that we know from Europe, this is used to communicate to other mobile phones. But it is more like email and MMS, as you send your message to a kind of email address and can add files or photos. The great thing on this is that it works like

Only impressive thing I found is the Toshiba Media Player.

Graphic mod for the Notion Ink keyboard

The Android 2.2 keyboard sucks on a high resolution screen as you can find on the newer Android tablets. On my HTC Desire I always kept the HTC IME keyboard, as IMHO it is much better than the Android keyboard. Even the new Gingerbread keyboard is not good for me. Unfortunately the HTC IME keyboard does not work on my Xvision, so I had to search for an alternative. I found the Notion Ink keyboard ported from gojimi on XDA-Developers.

Camera Pro – Quite good, but doesn’t give me 5MPx on my HTC Desire. There are only 3 image sizes to select, but no hint which size means how many pixels. Swiss Codemonkeys can do better, as they show with their other applications. http://bit.ly/bQGzuG #android @TheAppBrain
