Galaxy tab as a development device

Hi all,

I was looking at getting a Galaxy Tab to do on device testing for Android, and would appreciate any feedback you have around this.

Is there anything I should watch out for using this device?

Am I able to assume that if my app runs well in the emulator on different Android versions and on the Tab that it should be ok on most other devices?

  • I have this device, but I can't get Titanium to connect to it. When I click on the "Install Now" to get the app onto the device, it thinks about it for some time, then ends without saying anything. After checking the device, there's no app.

    Has anyone successfully tested an app on the Galaxy Tab? If so, how'd you do it? Am I right in saying you need to connect the device via the Samsung Kies setting under USB connections?

  • I had a similar problem with an HTC dream, I think it was because I didn't have my USB setting correctly . I just ended up going to the build/android folder and coping the app.apk file to the device, then installing it on the device.

  • Launch the DDMS tool to see if it sees the device. Make sure you have USB debugging and Allow third-party sources enabled on device.

  • Lee: look at Don's commment. You need to turn on USB Debugging and allow third-party sources. I just bought a galaxy tab and it worked first time for me, it took a while before i saw the app on the phone(?) though.
