Android Emulator for 7 Inch Tablet
This section provides a tutorial example on how to create and run an Android Emulator for 7 inch tablets.
While I was creating my "vPhone" AVD, I saw that the AVD Manager supports a number of device types:
So I decided to create another AVD to simulate a 7 inch tablet. Here are the parameters I used on the Create new AVD screen:
Name: vTablet Device: 7" WSVGA(Tablet)(1024 x 600:mdpi) Target: Android 5.1.1 - API Level 22 CPU/ABI: ARM (armeabi-v7a) [x] Hardware keyboard present Skin: WSVGA Front Camera: None Back Camera: None Memory Options: RAM: 512, VM Heap: 16 Internal Storage: 200 MiB SD Card/Size: 32 MiB
Then I launched the vTablet AVD with "Scale display to real size" turned on. After about 10 minutes, my 7 inch tablet simulator was running on my Windows system.
After unlocking the screen and clicking the Apps icon, I saw the apps list screen.
Notice that there is no emulation of keyboard. But I can use the Windows keyboard for input.
