    I had to get a BT broadband line put in so I could configure mine. LINK2 are friggin useless and for he amount of money they fleece us for their service is appalling.

    Company called Learnpad do some tablets running Android fully loaded with software - £200 now. You can also buy their software for £30 per tablet too.
    It'll control Android from a PC too which is really handy.
    Cheers Mikky, if you could PM over a list of IP addresses I'd be grateful, my solution was to take them home and install everything offsite which is pretty rubbish really, and I agree with you regarding Link2ICT they have a thrown several spanners in the works recently at my school and cost an absolute fortune, do'n think we get value for money from them at all.

    Let's say we have a lot of Android devices around a business all using the same Google account for the market. But one user bought an app for £1. Would this then be allowed for all devices on the account? Will Google do anything about that?

    Probably. It is Google after all. Doesn't Play register the device with the download??

    I've bought a couple of apps which I have installed on both phone and tablet - nothing told me I couldn't, in fact, I think I saw something from Google pointing this fact out (that could be rubbish, though!).

    After listening to apple fans!! which we all know are over priced and would require me to buy a mac if I had more than 5 ipads! (itunes does not allow more than 5 devices on windows)

    I have decided to write me own app for android to work in the KS1 and KS2 sectors. (more on that when i'm almost ready to release it)

    I came across the settings issue. We are buying 70 andorid ICS devices which are £54 ex vat each. How do I set them all up, install the latest flash and any other program I want without activating the google account.

    So today I have written a script...almost finish

    The idea:
    1/you set up your first tablet/device with wifi settings, homepage, download the apks you want to a folder on windows computer ie Flash, MyApp.
    2/ turn to devolper usb
    3/ download the settings of your main device.
    4/ plug in each device, hit Install and job done!

    I am working with ICS as it's the only one with native proxy support. Our children love them and you know what, they are not bothered they arent iPads. They have internet, educationcity and myApp at there finger tips. not to mention any other app i choose to install.

    If you think the scripts will be useful to anyone, pm and you can be my testers before i release them to everyone.

    Hope this helps

    A few companies (vmware, Dell) are working on locked down Android device software which should make things much easier.

    yup, at the moment i'm using futeko.com - Eken T01 speak directly and get cheap delivery etc.

    have not found anything it can't handle, bought 1 for myself to start testing my app and the headteacher was that impressed she bought one. used them with the children first.

    Ok so the screen resolution isn't great, and it only has 512mb ram (so does the ipad2!!) but we are talking about mobile java programming! it really is allthe children at this age need.

    "the same as found in the Ainol Novo tablets" - you need to be careful how you pronounce that, don't you :-)

    We just bought one of these Android tabs to play around with:

    Yarvik GoTab Xerios 10 inch Tablet - Black (Cortex A8 1.2 GHz, 512MB RAM, 8GB Memory, Android 4.0.3): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    Even though it runs ICS 4.0.3 there is no proxy support!! Apparently enabling that is at the discretion of the manufacturer? I think if we rooted it then we can use proxyDroid (though I have zero clue how to root one of these??). However as a workaround I discovered that installing the Opera web browser allows you to type in a URL of opera:config and it has its own settings for putting proxy address in Only prob is that this wouldn't be used by any other apps

    Thought I'd tried that to be honest but will give it another go today. One of our teachers is using it at the mo as a test of our ePortal registration system and Frog VLE

    ICS has proxies on all the devices I've seen. RuAware is right. Long press the connection in the wifi list. That should do it.
    Other alternative is use something like ProxyDroid, but you'll have to root your device for it to work.

    Thanks @RuAware, turns out you were right! What I was doing wrong was adding the SSID to the device first, then pressing the 'Advanced' button at the top right afterwards. I removed the SSID, clicked Add and then realised I'd completely missed a tick box saying advanced settings underneath where I enter the pass key

    Cheers

    Why can't I seem to add wildcards or IP addresses to the proxy exceptions?? Whenever I put an '*' in a URL or the second dot of an IP address, the save button greys out. Surely you can specify an IP at least?
