A Nice Feature for the Touch Only Device

Buzz from Yi Sun
Android-x86 has a nice feature for the touch only device (no to have a button at all). If you touch the right corner of the status bar, it enables a touch mode that allows you to simulate the home/menus buttons through some touch actions on the status bar (see With the Amazon test drive, when you click the right corner of the status bar, you will see a dialog showing up on the screen that tells you to wait for the function to be turned on. Even though the full feature does not work with the Amazon test drive, but it proves that Amazon is using our software.

Several days ago, Amazon's Appstore provide a new service to let users can test the android app online before they buy it. Its name is Amazon Test Drive. (  Engadget: lets you play with an Android virtual machine, try apps before you buy them )

@bluestacksinc found Amazon Test Drive might run the android apps on andorid-x86 in Amazon EC2.

In fact,  @bluestacksinc also provide an android VM on x86 platform. ( @techoutfitters BluesStacks Can Run Android on x86-based Windows PCs -- )

Hi, @Amazon, thank you for choosing !!

Cheers !!
