Android Tablet or Android Phone?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
I was just wondering. What do you think is the best deal of these two:
A.) Get an Android Tablet, throttle up my cable internet to the 69.99 USD /mo 25 Mbps download 3 Mbps upload, so I can game better.
B.) Get an android plan of 119 or so USD a month, no gaming, get rid of my cable Internet, and cable phone?
I can't have both. Note that the Plan A. would be cheaper, due to it being 69.99 + 14.99 USD/mo. I don't travel a lot, and when I do, there's usually a wifi point I can connect to. Gaming cannot be tethered easily without harsh fees above the normal rate:
For people who support tethering:
260 KB/sec average on a 3D MMORPG. That's about 0.25390625 Megabytes of Data. Follow along the usage track:
This is considering 5 Hours a day:
0.25390625 * 60 = 15.234375 MB an hour
15.234375 * 5 = 76.171875 MB a day
76.171875 * 7 = 533.203125 MB a week
533.203125 * 4.5 = 2,399.41406 MB (or 2.4 GB) a month. (Carriers usually round up to the nearest megabyte)

Installing Ubuntu Touch (Daily) on (old) Android Phone

Having followed instructions to run the developer prerelease of Ubuntu Touch on my HTC desire I'm eager to try the beta release too. Can someone please answer the following question about the instructions here before I begin? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install
When I perform step 4:
this "bootstraps" the phone. Will this delete the android HBoot Bootloader and so prevent me from using the recovery program?
If it does how can I get it back afterwards?
[SOLVED] Ubuntu laptop recognizes but does not connect to HTC wifi hotspot on my android phone
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2012
Hello I have a laptop that has Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed. For some odd reason I am unable to connect to my wireless HTC wifi hotspot eventhough my computer sees the network and has full bars but when I click on it to connect it doesnt establish a connection.
Here are the steps that I follow in order to try and connect:
1) I turn on my laptop
2) I turn on the HTC wifi hotspot on my Android cellphone (without any security settings)
3) I click on the wireless icon on my laptop and click on the HTC hotspot network
4) The icon shows the laptop trying to connect but after a few minutes no connection is established.
I would really appreciate any help thanks.
can't view files on android phone in ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 16, 2011
Odd thing happening.
When I hook up my Samsung Galaxy S2 Android phone to my computer, I can open it up in Nautilus and browse around folders and stuff, but none of the files are visible! Even when I right click a folder and select properties, it says it contains no files.
The odd thing is that in Windows 7 all the files are right there and I can move, copy, paste, etc, which leads me to believe something's not quite right with my Ubuntu rather than my phone.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't detect Android phone
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2012
Hey all. So in the dark-ages when I used Windows, when I would plug in my Android phone (Samsung Continuum) it would ask me if I wanted to view the files in the phone as though it were an external hard-drive and I could easily transfer files between the PC and phone.
Now using Ubuntu 11.10 it won't detect the device (as I've read elsewhere that it should) regardless of whether or not the phone is in USB debugging mode.
How do I alleviate this? Thanks!
Transfer Files from Ubuntu 12.04 Computer to Android Phone
- date: October 9, 2013
Lately I have taken to the hobby of trying to make my Android powered LG Optimus G as in touch with my home network as possible when I am out of the house. So far, I have managed to connect it to my ssh server via ConnectBot as well as share my desktop via a VNC server and bVNC Android.
Now I am looking to add the capability of transfering files from my home system to my phone. Assuming this is possible (and can be done free of charge), my question is: what is the route I should take?
I have thought about using ssh (in this case a server on my phone). I have found a program, SSHDroid, which allows me to connect to my phone as a server while I am on my home network, but I have not figured out how to make this program function remotely (I did use whatsmyip.org from the phone to find its IP address while on 3g).
When the server up while on 3g the address it displays is: sftp://[email protected]
