K1 Needs

2011-12-22, 16:33 PM

Hi Everyone,  Just joined the forum.  My home is in New Mexico, but we are RVing back home in Ca for the holidays.

 

I'm getting a 32G K1 for Christmas, but my wife won't even let me see the box (smile).

 

My question is:  What will I need to use it right out of the box?

 

Will the cable that comes with it allow me to copy anything from my Laptop/Desktop?

 

I just want tob e able to "do something" with it right away.  I'm not much for games.  It'll just be a toy and a reader for the most part.

 

BTW, I don't read German.  Have a hard enough time reading and speaking English (smile).

 

Many Thanks,

 

Jim

You do not need anything extra. It coms with a cable to connect to your PC.

 

With an app 'File Expert', you can transfer files between your PC and phone through wifi. No cable is need.

You should consider the newly released Firefox web browser, the Kindle app and / or the Google Books app, and without saying, Angry Birds...

It comes with a ton of stuff (almost TOO much) pre-loaded for you to play with. You'll probably spend the first couple of weeks deciding what to delete, what to keep and what else to download from Android Market.

Get a case or cover. Like the others said, alot of apps already installed(you'll get rid of alot of them though). I've had mine a couple weeks now and i'm still exploring different apps. A must is Wifi File Explorer. No cord needed. you use your internet browser on your PC to upload and download to and from your K1. search the market and internet. try out the different apps and read the android market forums.

Thanks, everyone!

 

Someone touted "Angry Birds".  I think it comes with that game.  I had never heard of it before.  I'm not much of a gamer.

The wifi app sounds good.  Sounds like networking, no?  I'll probaby use it for about 1% of ig's capabilities, lol.

 

Definitely want a cover! 

 

Regards,

 

Jim
