    Huawei Ideos S7

    Question Tablets for Dummies

    OK.

    I am a complete and total newbie at this Tablet thing. I bought a S7 just before Christmas because it seemed to do everything I wanted it to do, it was getting good reviews and the price was right.

    Now, questions questions.

    The "User's Manual" is fairly lame. Is there a more detailed manual online somewhere that goes into more detail? I'm talking about basic rudimentary stuff; not just configuring. Like, I managed to create a folder in my Favorites page, but nowhere does it say how to delete a folder. How can I delete it?

    Or, how do I move applications to my Favorites? That stupid little booklet (half of which is in Spanish ) is basically useless.

    The S7 appears to have a docking station port on the bottom, next to the SD card slot, but so far I have not been able to find a docking station for it. Is there such a thing?

    What is the difference between a Resistive and Capacitive screen? Why is one better than the other?

    Why can't I get my Windows 7 to recognize the S7? I tried to find drivers on the Huawei Devices site but couldn't find what I need.

    Help! (And thanks in advance.)

    Next time put questions in bullets

    1. Is there a more detailed manual online somewhere that goes into more detail.
    >> NO, its a smart device, a detail manual will be ridiculously lengthy
    Edit: tjanuario posted a link with more detailed manual
    2. I managed to create a folder in my Favorites page, but nowhere does it say how to delete a folder. How can I delete it? Or, how do I move applications to my Favorites?
    >> I dont understand
    3. How can I delete it?
    >> Try hardware menu key (the one with 3 horizontal bars)
    4. I have not been able to find a docking station for it. Is there such a thing?
    >> Yes, I've seen picture, I believe it was posted here, but I cant find where to buy.
    5. What is the difference between a Resistive and Capacitive screen?
    >> Wiki it, but short explanation Capacitive is more sensitive while Resistive is more accurate
    6. Why can't I get my Windows 7 to recognize the S7?
    I dont know, I use Mac and it recognized fine

    Hi Salty dog-
    Welcome to a great resource site. When you take the time to read all the stickies at leisure- not in a rush to fix something- but just to read you will find lots of nice to know stuff that you don't think about until you come across the problem and you'll think " I read about this in those sticky threads!!!" They will always be in the same place so you can refer back to them. I love my tablet!! Took 2 days of reading and trial and error for me to fix all my problems. Not too shabby. Just persist and you'll figure it out!

    PS- Love the name. Do you know the story of the salty dog?

    Wink Don't know why???

    This thread seems like the appropriate place to show my ignorance.

    Why is it that there must be 20 programs open and running when the i box (notification flashing i) is flashing. I know I didn't run them. Or open them. Is there a start menu that can be modified like on a PC to limit automatic running programs when the tablet is first started? If anyone can enlighten me I would appreciate it. Thank you.

    Android opens those apps and keeps them open for efficiency, android manages memory/space much differently than windows.

    For more details you can read about memory management on the android dev site.

    We also have some good docs here on it. It is not really necessary, but you can get ATK from the market to auto and manually kill apps.

    Task killers are not all that great IMO. Android will continue to restart the apps that you are killing. I find it best to just let androind manage itself, it's pretty good at it.

    Absolutely. IMHO task killers are not required anymore, but some people like them.
    SikYou thanked this.
