I am an inquisitive developer. Regular joe by day, TV freak by night. I love all things Android. Weaned off Ubuntu onto a Mac. I enjoy getting lost on my motorcycle. Also learning photography. Dabbling in both on a weekend is my idea of a day well spent.

Student of Life, Laidback, Abrasive, Possesive, Obsessive.

comment I lost my Android smartphone. Play Store tells me that someone has inserted a SIM card. How can I find out the phone number?
I think you need to install Plan B. This will help you track it down.

comment I want to update my Micromax A87 Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4. ICS
I have a HTC One V, its a single core Snapdragon, with 512 MB RAM running AOKP. It all depends upon the ROM/Stock OS running on the device and services running in the background. I run 4.1.2 smoothly.

comment Can't tell if HTC One V is GSM or CDMA
@EGHDK Remove the back cover on the chin. Under the "Made in China" sticker, there should be a small box which should mention something like HTC One V T320e What does your's say?

comment Google Talk contact list shows fewer contacts than my PC IM client
They should have a hide offline contacts option. Then, we can keep the Display option to Show all.

comment Android battery usage (3G, HSDPA and Edge)
I read all of this on Wikipedia. Frankly, it will take more than a few reading to get your head around it. I dont mean any disrespect. Atleast, it still took me a few reading to get a simple grasp of the technologies.

comment Can I use my Nexus7 charger to charge my Android phone?
It is convenient to carry a single charger. But a problem, when all devices are powerless at the same time.
