Installing "AboutAndroid" to Samsung Tablet

This section provides a tutorial example on how to install my 'AboutAndroid' application to my Samsung tablet. 'HelloAndroid' needs to be uninstalled first, because both applications share the same Java package name 'com.herongyang'.

My first application "HelloAndroid" works on my Samsung tablet, now let's see what will happen to my second application "AboutAndroid".

1. Uninstall "HelloAndroid", then install "AboutAndroid". Keeping "HelloAndroid" on the tablet will cause installation problem with "AboudAndroid", because both "HelloAndroid" and "AboutAndroid" use the same Java class package name.

C:\herong\AboutAndroid>\local\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\adb 
   -d uninstall com.herongyang 
Success

C:\herong\cod\AboutAndroid>\local\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\adb 
   -d install -s bin\AboutAndroid-debug.apk
868 KB/s (23132 bytes in 0.026s)
        pkg: /sdcard/tmp/AboutAndroid-debug.apk
Success

2. Go to the tablet. Tap on "Applications", then "AboutAndroid" to run the application. You will see the output:
